  • Ability to handle multiple instances of grantmaking workflows in parallel.
  • Demonstrable ability in prioritizing and meeting rigid deadlines whilst multitasking
  • A clear, adaptable approach when working with pledgers and third parties in multiple time zones with different requirements and deadlines
