This could be you!
Communications and Stakeholder Engagement Manager
Maritime Industry Australia Ltd (MIAL) represents the interests of Australia’s shipping, offshore resources and domestic commercial vessel sectors, which are vital to Australia’s economic prosperity and way of life. Recent global events have highlighted this and as a result, the Australian shipping industry has cross sectoral and political support for a program of revitalisation – there was never a more exciting time to be joining the MIAL team.
At MIAL we drive industry policy development, industrial advocacy, research & analysis, project management and stakeholder relations with both a domestic and international focus, to progress the interests of the Australian maritime industry.
If you’re a strong communicator with a professional style, politically savvy with a passion for stakeholder engagement and making a difference in something that really matters, then this is the role for you.
The Communications and Stakeholder Engagement Manager is a pivotal member of the team, working across the organisation and our various communication channels to drive our communications and stakeholder engagement activities.
You will be responsible for optimising and maximising our member engagement, ensuring our branding and social media presence is consistent and professional and you will help to build and maintain our industry profile via our existing suit of events while seeking new or different opportunities for growth.
Experience working for, or with, a peak body or industry association is of value, but if you’re a creative and strategic thinker, who thrives on using your initiative, and you consider yourself a supreme communicator in both written and verbal forms, you probably have what it takes anyway.
Our head office is in Melbourne, our membership spread throughout the country, and our team mostly works from home when not travelling to meet with stakeholders.
We are lucky to be able to offer a highly flexible work environment – the flipside of which is the expectation that our team, from time to time, is available outside usual business hours.
Candidates based in Melbourne will be favoured, however exceptional candidates located in Sydney, Brisbane or Perth will also be considered.
