The person in this role is primarily responsible for the task management of multidisciplinary projects, including courses of action to manage task completion, project delivery schedule management, and other supporting functions to the project manager.

Excellent communication skills and high levels of diplomacy and tact are required for the development and management of collaborations, and for managing relationships with key internal and external stakeholders.

This role requires the use of specific project management tools and software (Asana, Trello or other), to efficiently manage tasks, involving colleagues from across CABI and its regional centres, as well as a broad range of partner organisations and consultants.
