The actual scope of the tasks involved will depend on the skill set of the successful applicant.  There is some flexibility in terms of tasks to be undertaken as this is a short term position to fill a capacity gap that exists as a result of the long term Project Advisor being on extended medical sick leave until the end of January 2018.
