Imagine the difference you could make as part of Grosvenor’s team 

Grosvenor Performance Group ( is an employee-owned and growing management consulting firm with offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane. We are a firm that genuinely cares about our staff and offers real work-life flexibility. We are proud to be Great Places to Work Certified, with our results some 20 points ahead of the average firm in our industry.

The way we treat our staff makes us stand apart from our competitors. Long before COVID, we had a workplace flexibility policy that respects individual preferences and enables people to work in different ways. During COVID, none of our employees have been made redundant, we’ve had no cuts to pay and no forced leave. Instead, we have grown our business about 20% in the last financial year.

About the Role 

We are looking for a senior person to join our Melbourne office. We are flexible on the skills and experience, but ideally prefer candidates with complex procurement, property advisory or extensive public sector experience. As a senior person within the Melbourne office, you will win and lead consulting projects, mentor and grow less experienced team members and contribute to the operation of the business. We’re open to people that can immediately be successful in the role and people with relevant experience and transferrable skills that can grow into the role in a 6–12-month timeframe. We would prefer the role to be full time, however, will consider part time for the right candidates.

  • Proactively complete business development activities
  • Represent Grosvenor in accordance with GPG Brand and Beliefs
  • Support the development and building of internal capabilities, including development and utilisation of knowledge content / tools / templates (industrialisation)

Candidates for our Senior Manager and Associate Director positions will have specialist subject matter knowledge and expertise in one or more areas of practice relevant to our business, and/or have existing significant leadership experience. 

What we can offer 

In addition to your salary, we offer a range of unique perks, some of which are outlined below.  Our people are our most valuable asset and we reward them for their hard work in a range of ways:  

  • Wellness allowance
  • Individual training allowance - tailor your career around your interests
  • Flexible work options (including part time arrangement for the right candidate, WFH (not just during COVID!) and flexible hours)
  • Lavish company conferences and share fairs multiple times per year, alternating between the states our offices are located in
  • Minimal “work from the client site” requirements - be part of a true project/office team
  • Career advancement at your pace - no requirement for a position to be vacant for you to be promoted
  • If desired, grow into a more senior position with the option of equity participation
  • all Grosvenor staff are covered by our corporate Life/ Permanent Disability insurance and Income Continuance insurance policy
  • Community service leave
