The post-holder will need to build strong relationships with people of all levels across the organisation - including Heads of Departments and Directors, so must be confident in developing new working relationships and presenting to senior staff where required.
The Barbican is looking for someone who either has direct experience of or is keen to develop their skills in the management and monitoring of progress of implemented strategies and business plans. Someone who has a good understanding of the use of e.g. KPIs, SMART targets and other metrics to measure success.
