Mako has been a great colleague and has worked very effectively for RBCC,
we will all miss her.
She is leaving in order to create the British-Georgian Chamber of
Commerce, which will be a sister chamber to RBCC and may well be of
interest to many RBCC members – they should contact the BGCC on
RBCC therefore need s to find a new UK Office Manager and please find
attached below a profile for this position.
Preferred start date would be late May/early June so that an orderly
handover can be achieved.

has some 500 UK and Russian members, from the global corporates to SMEs.
A key member of the UK team, the Office Manager is responsible for:

office supplies and services

necessary in consultation with colleagues.

definite asset. Russian language is not a pre-requisite but would
certainly be very helpful.

someone who can integrate well into a busy but friendly team working often
with very senior business people from UK and Russia.
Current post holder leaves 15 June but we would anticipate at least a two-
