You can easily switch between proactive and reactive and can work in an environment with various dynamics that often lead to the change in direction.
You’re results driven and can focus your time and efforts on your own work load, but can also provide guidance and support to the rest of the team when required.

You have the ability to focus on your work without losing sight of what’s going on around you and the wider company objectives.
