Profile & competencies


  • Analytical sense and critical thinking: FAs have a lot of research and analysis to produce. This requires the ability to frame the right questions, objectively analyze and evaluate a problem or issue, and problem-solve including simulating possible outcomes.
  • Versatility and education: given the scope of work, FAs should be able to jump from one topic to another with a similar impact.
  • Execution and collaboration: given the scope, volume and timeline of work, the ability to direct people-including oneself-towards a particular objective that may require active orchestration is key.
  • Influential communication: given the number of Alaners FAs interact with on a daily basis, the ability to effectively cause both understanding and action in others without the use of direct power is essential.
  • 'Business' sense: FAs often have to think at the company level, assessing what would be best for the business, and working on topics that have cross-cutting impacts. The ability to understand what can make a business great (product-wise, commercially, in terms of image, etc.), and usually make correct decisions, even in the presence of ambiguity, is paramount.

  • French fluency preferred but not required.
