In the project team, there are two PAs and five student consultants including one Project Leader. As a PA, you will work regularly with them to frame issues, guide analyses, as well as provide feedback on presentations and other deliverables. By giving project specific support and helping the team attain professional standards, you will be providing our social sector partner organisations with the strategic recommendations needed for them to maximise their social impact.
