    "character" as a "type"

    Can I use word "character" in meaning of "type"?
    For example:
    "Can you tell me something about character of this job (project, entreprise, course)?"
    Is there a better word than "character" to express my intention?

    Thanks for "nature".
    So "character" is possible in this meaning, isn't it?

    It's possible-ish, but I would use nature. In both cases use a definite article.
