The role

You will find creative and sustained ways to break through the noise via peak media coverage, events, awards, campaigns and above all thought leadership. Most importantly you will evolve, develop and implement their channel and distribution strategy, further helping the organisation drive towards a digital first content approach.

About you:

This role presents an exceptional opportunity and as such requires a truly unique individual to achieve success. Bringing a proven track record across the full suite of communications specialisations, you will be able to talk to your experiences in driving growth through communications ideally on a global scale. You will be degree qualified in a Communications, Journalism, or a related field and although your sector background could be varied, ideally you will have had some exposure to financial services or technology environments and will be able to demonstrate an empathy for and affinity to the investment landscape, the world of start-ups and also your passion for technology. You will be a high energy, results driven operator with an entrepreneurial and inquisitive mindset and will be happy operating autonomously as well as in a small team dynamic. Although based in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs you will be required to travel internationally (when safe to do so) as well as attend virtual meetings across different time zones. You will be comfortable working flexibly to accommodate for this.
