– Mission Alignment: Someone that possesses a deep commitment to and understanding of EPAC’s mission.
– An Organizational Maven: Someone that can manage across multiple work streams and functions, keeping deadlines and managing complexity by simplifying solutions, systems and processes with clarity and attention to detail. Someone that has an ability to efficiently initiate and complete multiple tasks on time.
– Adaptable and Flexible: Someone that can handle any curveball, and in fact, expects them. Someone that can meet deadlines and manage competing priorities. Additionally, someone that is strategic and has the ability to pivot quickly as priorities shift and the team continues to take shape. Someone that can and is willing to travel if needed.
