*exceptional skills in convincing people that user needs and a usable approach is the only way to present information
*proven experience in using metrics and user feedback to define/refine content
*proven experience of working within a web application development environment, proficient in writing Markdown, picture sourcing and editing
*experience in choosing the best format for displaying information to the user
*experience in working with content publishing systems

Competencies required

Leading and team working

*Building on the inter-dependencies and relationships between teams to create a common purpose
*Clarifying and communicating team objectives, bringing a broader perspective to a team so that it can focus on different delivery approaches
*Co-ordinating and monitoring team performance, utilising team diversity to maximise effectiveness

Analysing evidence and thinking strategically

*Identifying hidden or emerging issues and proposing decisive strategic action
*Probing evidence to identify strategic trends and links
*Analysing evidence from diverse sources to generate robust solutions and make timely decisions

Focusing on customers and stakeholders
