Ensure the sustainability of the backbone organisation by identifying appropriate funding. Coordinate the development of an effective and context-appropriate platform identity and brand, including the development of a change management plan to ensure adequate buy-in and support from internal functions and stakeholders. Participate in relevant safety audits, inspections and observations, and address issues. NB: Please note that regular travel to the Northern Cape will be required in this role.
