  • Showing a proactive approach to your work – initiative is key. TEWi does not sit on the fence. We are not victims of circumstance

  • Interest and basic understanding of science, medicine, marketing and in particular in human behaviour
  • Solid project management and analytical skills
  • The ability to multitask and prioritise; excellent time management skills
  • The ability to deliver findings as they are; don’t dress them up, don’t dress them down
