You are a naturally energetic person with an enthusiasm for managing and empowering people. You know how to recruit and develop a team of volunteers and your extraordinary motivational skills will enable you to inspire your team to increase sales and control costs. Above all, you are ready to take on a new challenge and have a keen interest in Shelter’s cause.
