• Strong and thoughtful analytical and decision making, and the ability to assess which items need to be handled with urgency and which should be considered further.

• Effective change management skills and ability to help drive the group.

• Demonstrated ability to unpack complicated legal and government actions and help reporters make them interesting.

• Demonstrated ability to develop relationships and influence news reporting and editing.
