The ideal candidate will have strong leadership skills, will be a great decision-maker and negotiator and must have the ability to work as part of a team – within the rules of the workplace and any laws of the land, obviously.

The role will contain foreign travel and the use of a private jet.

Suitable candidates are likely to have to go through a rigorous selection process, but the role can be highly rewarding.

The role provides free accommodation at a highly-desirable Central London location, as well as access to a lavish country home in the delightful county of Buckinghamshire.

Candidates are warned that the role is high-pressured and will come with a degree of public scrutiny and is likely to mean having a good relationship with certain media outlets.
