This industry association established in 2015 has a goal to drive innovation, productivity and competitiveness across Australia’s manufacturing industry. Its mission is to transform the manufacturing sector to make it globally more competitive and create demand for jobs. They are an industry-led, not-for-profit organisation that is run by a board and management team of industry experts and is connected with a nationwide network of manufacturers, universities, research institutions, and export hubs.
They are looking to replace an existing member of the board which has presented them the opportunity to bring new capability and experience onto the board. They are seeking a specific background that will enable them to potentially take on a new direction and strategy through raising funds/capital for their maturing project pipeline.
The successful individual will have strong expertise in capital raising with a likely background within the investment banking sector, private equity or a venture capitalist business. This individual will need to have an exceptionally strong understanding of commercials and be able to demonstrate a career managing and growing funds. A background working with the manufacturing sector will certainly allow this individual to make an impact faster, but this is not an absolute requirement as the purpose of this search is to bring a diversity of experience and skill to the Board.
This appointment is suited to a seasoned executive who is at a juncture in their career where they know what they want and the growth of the manufacturing sector within Australia is of importance to them
Remuneration for this appointment is $42,500 pa
