An Accomplished Senior Researcher: This role will suit someone ready for the next big thing. You will bring broad expertise, ideas, commercial astuteness and a sharp reputation to help take the business to the next level

A Commercial Mind: You must be happy having financial accountability and managing a P&L. You will tap into your active network and forge new relationships to launch and grow the business further

A Leader: Clients and Staff. You will hire and manage a very capable team and be expected to lead client relationships with gravitas

Cultural fit – You’ll enjoy captaining your own ship but you’ll also want to be part of the bigger picture and know how important it is to contribute to the wider social fabric of a business made up of brilliant people who are focused, professional, determined, ambitious and have fun along the way.

This is a rare opportunity to take true ownership of an already successful business and brand and run with it here in Sydney.
