A few words from our CEO

“We expect our new team member to do what is necessary, do what needs
doing and what they said they would do. The pace will be fast. We need
them to adapt and react positively and move forward.

We’re looking for somebody that has a positive vibe and nature, is
entrepreneurial at heart and actually believes in our core values:
honesty, integrity, leadership and passion and is completely
customer-focused.

The person needs to be a real team player and one that believes and
accepts wholeheartedly in ownership, accountability and responsibility
whilst staying clear of blame, denial and excuses.”
