• Excellent communication, organisational and time management skills - and quick to learn
• Ability to assimilate information quickly, identify key issues from a range of stakeholder viewpoints (in line with our core proposition of impartiality)
• Clear, stylish accurate writing is essential

There's a high degree of fast-paced multi-tasking but support from senior editorial staff and rest of the 100-strong team is always on hand.
