•    Have a strong desire to learn and succeed – we want someone who is always eager to gain more knowledge and wish to achieve
•    Be enthusiastic and personable  - we want an energetic, go-getting personality which will fit in well with the team
•    Be flexible – we are looking for someone who is keen and able to move across all aspects of modern business and work hard on whatever is required, from the high-level strategic thinking to the day-to-day drudge work.
The applying candidate must have:
•    Graduated or currently in final year at a top university
•    Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) greater than 4.0 and excellent high school record
•    Bachelors Degree in Economics, Arts, Business, Computer Science, IT, Sciences or Engineering
