They must be able to balance people priorities with project priorities and devote appropriate amounts of time to both and be fearless change leaders and service improvers.

Other requirements include being flexible, responsive and innovative and be able to shift culture through their interpersonal skills and behaviours.

They will also need to be politically astute and be able to interact well at the most senior levels of industry and government and engage closely and effectively with a wide range of stakeholders.
