The role in a nutshell

This is a diverse, challenging, opportunity-filled role.

  • You’ll be partnering with clients all over Australia and some internationally to help their organisations build their innovation muscle, using our own science-based methodology.
  • You’ll be facilitating impactful, energising workshops with clients weekly. This often requires travel. 
  • You’ll be finding new business opportunities and growing existing relationships.
  • You’ll be contributing to new product development and other business initiatives where strengths and interests align.
  • You’ll be working highly autonomously, while ensuring that you are positively contributing to team culture and company growth in a collaborative, non-competitive way. 


You in a nutshell (“The Criteria”)

We are looking for an experienced consultant who has a passion for innovation.

  • You love (and have lots of experience) working with and speaking the language of corporates, but will thrive working within a non-corporate business - we don’t wear suits and we don’t have egos.
  • You are great at business development - we need someone who has a track record in developing amazing relationships with clients, and will be able to bring new business to Inventium from the get-go.
  • Learning is your thing - we are a science-based consultancy so we need someone who loves research, continuous learning and has got some credible, relevant qualifications behind them.
  • You get energy from facilitation - we are looking for someone who has that X Factor and can effortlessly engage and energise a group of people. You are already doing this on a regular basis. 
  • Innovation is your speciality - it goes without saying that we need someone who is equally passionate about innovation as we are. Folk like Clayton Christensen and Eric Ries are probably personal heroes of yours.


Us in a nutshell

We are Inventium, Australia's leading innovation consultancy. We have helped over 200,000 people become better innovators since 2007. We apply the latest findings from science (psychology and neuroscience) to help organisations unlock growth through innovation. We do this through training, facilitation, general consulting, and assessment. We are the official partners of the AFR Most Innovative Companies list – an annual list that identifies Australia's most innovative companies. We've previously made the BRW Fast 100 list twice AND won the BRW Client Choice Award for Best Management Consultancy. We are also a proud BCorporation.


What we can offer you

Inventium is a one of a kind workplace that is focussed on creating the best place for people to work. Our innovative people practices have received significant publicity and praise. Here's just some of what you can look forward to: 

  • VERY flexible working locations & hours Mon-Thur (when you don't have workshops or meetings scheduled).
  • Unlimited Annual Leave (Rebalance Leave)
  • An awesome group of team mates, who all thrive under a 'Be Your Own Boss' self-managed structure where we self-set our KPI’s. 
  • An exciting, fast-paced working environment where you will NEVER have to wear a suit to work AGAIN. 
  • A dynamic shared office in WeWork Sydney CBD.
  • An Apple Mac laptop (we hate PCs – they drive us nuts).
  • A generous team bonus and incentives structure.


How to apply

So if you have made it this far, and if you like the sound of what you have read, throw your hat in the ring by uploading a short cover letter (no more than a page) which provides some clear examples of how you meet the criteria above, and your CV to seek. We shortlist daily, so recommend you get in quick.
