You’ll enjoy coaching and mentoring your team to help them develop their strategic policy craft and further build their capability and careers. It’s a talented team and you’ll have fun working together to deal with a range of really complex issues, applying critical thinking and challenging the status quo.  No previous building systems experience is required, as you are able to leverage the knowledge and industry experience of our in-house building system experts.
