Women in Media exists to help women in media excel. We have 6000 members and are broadening our membership to include women in journalism, communications, production, public relations, advertising, marketing, publishing and digital media. Our initiatives aim to increase gender equality, extend leadership and economic participation opportunities for women, and build a safer, more respectful culture in Australian media workplaces.
At this important juncture as we move to represent women in all facets of media, we are looking to appoint our first General Manager to lead and manage the organisation in this next phase. This is a perfect role for a dynamic, commercial, efficient, results-oriented, purpose-led individual ready to lead a small organisation.
The role is both strategic and hands-on. The most important aspect of this role is managing our day-to-day activities. As a small not-for-profit organisation, it is critical that the General Manager is a doer as well as a thinker. Core skills include stakeholder management, events management, digital marketing and financial management. Securing corporate sponsorship, managing key relationships, overseeing processes and systems, and responsibility for member experience, are all part of the remit.
This is a four-day-a-week role with the potential to be full-time that can be based anywhere in Australia. The hours are highly flexible. You will have part-time / contract support staff to assist you at your direction.
The successful candidate will be passionate about women’s leadership and have excellent event, marketing and communication skills and strong financial and organisational capabilities. Experience in the media industry is preferred but not necessary.
Reporting to the Chairs of the Board, this is a perfect position for someone ready to lead an organisation.
