Salary $110,737 - $122,940 plus superannuation of 15.4% plus PBI tax concessions

We are seeking a high performing governance specialist to join IBA’s Investments team.

About us 

Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) is a unique organisation that promotes the self-management, self-sufficiency and economic independence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.  IBA’s programs provide the means for Indigenous Australians to create wealth and accumulate assets, take up investment opportunities, create business enterprises that provide additional employment opportunities, and to purchase homes.  It achieves these outcomes by applying a commercial focus, and by building mutually respectful and productive partnerships with Indigenous Australians, government, non-government and private sector organisations.

Our Investment & Asset Management activities

IBA’s investment programme has a 20-year track record of successful investment alongside Indigenous organisations. The portfolio comprises $480 million in investments across over 40 subsidiary entities in a variety of sectors, including tourism, property, funds management, energy, primary industries, industrial and retail businesses.

Your opportunity

We are seeking a high performing governance specialist to join IBA as our Manager, Investment Governance. This role will appeal to energetic, practical candidates who thrive on complexity, and who are ready for a role with a greater purpose. The successful candidate will be the leading governance specialist managing the corporate governance of IBA’s interests in a diverse portfolio of subsidiary companies, trusts, partnerships and unincorporated joint ventures. This role supplements and will work closely with IBA’s established legal, company secretarial and risk functions.

Your responsibilities

As IBA’s Manager, Investment Governance, you will be responsible for: 
  • Administering the governance frameworks, policies and processes governing IBA’s interests in a diverse portfolio of companies, trusts, partnerships and unincorporated joint ventures;
  • Applying your subject matter expertise to identify potential risk and governance issues in this portfolio, as well as opportunities to integrate best practice; and
  • Efficiently delivering a programme of risk-based continuous improvement in consultation with stakeholders and senior management. 

You must have tertiary qualifications in law, commerce or finance and at least 5 years’ professional experience dealing with corporate governance issues in an advisory capacity.  

You must be aware of the economic development aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and be committed to working ethically with them and in their interests. 

Success factors
  • You will have a well-developed professional judgment: you will call upon your technical advisory experience to deal calmly with complex or ambiguous situations. 
  • You will have strong interpersonal and influencing skills: you will use these to develop trust and influence with IBA’s partners, co-investors and stakeholders, supporting compliance with the IBA’s policy framework including the IBA’s Subsidiary Governance Framework. 
  • You will have strong administrative and organisational skills: you will use these to marshal the body of technical detail associated with IBA’s diverse portfolio of interests.
