This is not your standard estates management role!.

-     Own it and back it

You will take pride in what you do with confidence, but not overconfidence. It's important you take ownership of your decisions, stand by your convictions and reason with contradiction.

-     Not hesitate and act with purpose

You will ask for forgiveness - not permission. You will be comfortable juggling multiple projects acting both decisively and instinctively without support from managers.
