  • Ability to think outside the box (we like doing things differently)

The kinds of things you will do (there are heaps more, but here’s a couple)

  • Keep the Founder organised (first and foremost) – you will literally be her right hand
  • Create and maintain the brand’s yearly strategy schedule
