This role calls for an individual with the ability to grasp the ‘big picture’ with no less attention to the detail coupled with an analytical and inquisitive mind that seeks to find solutions for complex issues. Effective communication is critical in this role, so you will have demonstrated writing and presentation skills that convey quantitative and qualitative findings in a form that is engaging and of high quality for clients.
