S KILL 

DESCRIPTION 

Numeracy

  • Uses mathematical formulas and calculations to estimate and plan project costs

Oral communication

  • Uses listening and questioning techniques to convey client requirements, and articulate complex information using specific language required for audience

Reading

  • Demonstrates knowledge of and interpretation of complex technical and operational documentation, to determine and confirm job requirements

Writing

  • Prepares reports, required documentation expressing ideas and solutions and correspondence for specific audiences according to organisational procedures

Teamwork

  • Actively identifies the requirements of important communication exchanges, selecting required channels, format, tone and content to suit the purpose and audience
  • Fosters a collaborative culture within own sphere of influence, facilitating a sense of commitment and cohesion, and highlighting, and using the strengths of those involved

Planning and organising

  • Operates from a broad conceptual plan, developing the operational detail in stages, regularly reviewing priorities and performance during implementation, and identifying and addressing issues

Problem solving

  • Uses a range of strategies to store, access and organise virtual information, recognising that design choices will influence what information is retrieved, and how it may be interpreted, and used
  • Is aware of the importance of knowledge, monitoring and controlling access to digitally stored and transmitted information
  • Uses a mix of intuitive and formal processes to identify key information and issues, evaluate alternative strategies, anticipate consequences, implementation issues and contingencies
  • Uses a nuanced knowledge of context to adapt varied business procedures to requirements, depending on operational contingencies, risk situations and environments

Self-management

  • Uses systematic processes, setting goals, gathering required information and identifying and evaluating options against agreed criteria

Technology

  • Demonstrates sophisticated knowledge of principles, concepts, language and practices associated with the digital world and uses these to troubleshoot, and understand, the uses and potential of new technology
