Director – Client Relationships – Arrilla Indigenous Consulting


Job Description:

  • Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander identified position
  • Work with Australia’s leading provider of cultural competency training and specialist Indigenous consulting services
  • Support greater opportunity and success for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia’s workforce

Arrilla is a majority Indigenous owned organisation celebrating 27 years of operation. Arrilla has an exceptional reputation in the Indigenous and reconciliation spaces as a market leader in the provision of Indigenous cultural competency training (digital and face-to-face), leadership training, facilitation services, as well as a broad range of consulting services for all sectors across the nation. 

Arrilla’s CEO, Shelley Reys AO, has been leading the cultural competency space for over two decades and a leader in the reconciliation movement for just as many years.  She was the inaugural Co-Chair of Reconciliation Australia, involved in Parliament’s apology to The Stolen Generations, Vice-Chairman for the Australian of the Year Awards, was named the Australian Financial Review’s ‘100 Women of Influence’ and was awarded the coveted Officer of The Order of Australia (AO) for her work.

Arrilla is a small team of three based in Sydney’s new and iconic location, Barangaroo, within the offices of KPMG.  While our immediate team is small, those who work alongside us represent an expansive group of individuals and organisations across Australia.

We’re now looking for an exceptional individual to play a key role in the next phase of our growth. Working closely with Shelley Reys, you’ll bring a unique combination of qualities to the position, which will include a sound commercial ability, quality networks, a strong sense of purpose and passion, as well as a confident Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander voice.

Your opportunity to make a difference

As Director of Client Relationships you will play a key role in the growth of the business and our services.  Alongside our CEO, you’ll bring strong  Indigenous leadership for our internal team as well as our clients.  Your role will see you:

  • Contribute to the growth of Arrilla and its impact across the Australian workforce
  • Provide some operational support where it relates to supporting client needs 
  • Directly work on a  broad range of consulting projects in the Indigenous and reconciliation spaces in order to help our clients realise their objectives
  • Identify growth opportunities and compelling and differentiated value propositions
  • Nurture and grow our Client relationships to a trusted partner status
  • Build awareness of the Arrilla brand and services across our markets which include corporate, government, not-for-profit organisations
  • Work collaboratively with colleagues and associates externally to leverage networks and diversity of thought

Arrilla Indigenous Consulting is a joint venture entity between KPMG Australia and Indigenous woman, Shelley Reys AO.  Shelley is the majority shareholder and it is therefore a majority Indigenous owned business. The successful candidate will be employed by KPMG and seconded to work for and in Arrilla. This affords the successful candidate with KPMG’s full benefits and entitlements.

The Arrilla Difference

At 27 years of operation, Arrilla is one of the longest serving Indigenous businesses in Australia and one of the first organisations to engage the corporate sector in the Indigenous and reconciliation space. We have an enviable reputation for providing high quality, consistent and strong leadership with an exceptional client list to match.

By working in Arrilla you will be exposed to a high calibre corporate environment working with people who are focused on creating a diverse and dynamic environment that embraces and values differences.

In order to increase our capacity to realise our vision further, we entered into a joint venture with KPMG in 2016, providing access to a broader range of expertise and the scope to make an even greater impact.

KPMG remains the only professional services firm to be twice awarded the coveted ‘Elevate’ status for its RAP. KPMG were awarded the Human Rights Business Award in 2014 and won a Supply Nation award in 2019 for Indigenous procurement.  In addition to this, commitment to ‘Flexibility’ allows its people to manage the changing demands of work, personal or family life.
