• Excellent organisational and planning skills - detailed, methodical and time conscious.
• Ability to look at problems from a tactical and strategic perspective.
• Ability to identify the need for change, suggest initiatives and drive improvements.
• Strong initiative and will to succeed, coupled with a pragmatic and flexible approach.
• Commercial focus but dedication to providing a first-class customer service experience.
• Ability to bring energy and enthusiasm to any situation and to always act with honesty and integrity.

VPMA Regional Organisers Required
One of the key areas of the VPMA is its regional activity, so that we can try to bring networking opportunities and CPD to members (and non-members) across the whole of the UK.
In order for us to continue developing this regional structure, we do require the assistance of our members, in terms of assisting us by co-ordinating and hosting regional meetings.
We are particularly keen to try and find Regional Organisers who would be willing to hold such meetings in the Yorkshire, East Midlands, East Anglia and London regions. However, if you live in an area that isn’t covered by our current Regional Organisers, and you feel there is a need for regional meetings, then we would like to hear from you as well.
Please see “the role of a regional organiser”. If you would like to consider becoming a Regional Organiser, please contact the VPMA Secretariat.
We do hope that you can assist us in continuing to develop the VPMA’s regional structure.
Please Note: This is a voluntary role and you must be a VPMA Member.
