  • Must be professional, personable, presentable, and fun; the bottom line is that you will be one of our brand ambassadors and as such a face for our brand. 

  • Must have a sense of humour

  • Non-flappable & resilient

  • Know that there is always a solution, it just may not be obvious to start with.

  • Be a human equivalent of Siri!

  • Eagle-eyed
