This nominee is someone who takes on a diverse array of multiple assignments, jobs or objectives at the same time and can juggle them effectively, while accomplishing all of them successfully.

This nominee is not afraid to take on any job no matter how “down-n-dirty” it may be. This nominee may also be called the “jack/jill-of-all-trades” in an organization.
