    A membership & customer relations professional is sought, a self-driven and motivated individual who is highly organised and able to take on multiple tasks simultaneously.  This is a customer facing role, and much of your time will be spent either in direct interaction, or, listening to the member’s needs.

    The role will have a direct impact on the development of services and information provided by the association and will influence the future development of a new CRM system, website and stats reporting.

    The position will best suite an individual capable of communication at all levels and both sides of the equipment supply chain.
