will embody the attributes of principled leadership: trusteeship, values, ethics, commitment, honesty, involvement, and vision. The Assistant Director of Information Management will be a senior level manager with a demonstrated ability to provide strong leadership in a changing government environment. The successful candidate will possess strong managerial and interpersonal skills, and serve as a valuable resource throughout the Port organization. A strong customer service orientation; a history of effective partnerships and problem-solving, and the ability to fit well within an energetic and dedicated team are particularly important traits. This position requires a strong manager with proven experience in developing staff and holding to budgets. The ideal candidate will also have strong technical knowledge, business writing and presentation skills, a manager who is not afraid to roll-up his/her sleeves to get the work done. Service in organizations of similar complexity, challenges and structure is important.Of course, this doesn't describe me that well at all. I don't consider myself to have particularly strong managerial skills, nor (frankly) that much interest in management as a career. I also have absolutely no interest whatsoever in moving clear across the continent.
On the other hand, I do have "strong technical knowledge, business writing and presentation skills." So I'll take this as a compliment.
(Not that I'm going to actually apply for the post. Like I said, I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in moving across the continent.)
