COS is a highly strategic and facilitative position that demands a combination of focus and flexibility, as well as a willingness to play an active, behind-the-scenes role. As the Chief’s trusted counsel, the job requires a highly resourceful individual with resilient emotional intelligence, self-motivation, and strong analytical skills.
