At Criterion we operate in 5 key sector and are focused on providing solutions to the challenges in these sectors. We want our conferences to encourage networking and information sharing, so if you’re looking for a role where you can shape the way solutions are delivered, then this may be the opportunity for you!
Working within our 20-day project cycle, you will conduct phone based research of sectors to understand their challenges and market needs. You will then use this research and your analytical skills to put together a high-quality 2-day conference to specifically target the challenges facing the sector. Senior Business Leaders, Subject Matter Experts and Thought Leaders within your conference’s market are you go to for research, so a strong phone manner is important. You will need to use your influence and relationships to secure Speakers and Facilitators for your conference. This is an incredible opportunity for those looking to apply their research, analytical, planning and relationship building skills.
We love to work with like minded people – those that are resilient and creative but also passionate about quality and are wonderfully weird! You’ll have a degree in communications, journalism, social enquiry or a related discipline, not to mention be proactive. You will have 6 months + conference production experience, or have worked in a similar discipline like comms/media/journalism and are looking to take on a new challenge! A strong interest in current affairs is also necessary to produce timely and relevant conferences, as is an eagerness to learn. You will strive to meet goals and targets, and possess excellent communication skills. You’ll be required to work collaboratively, so a strong belief in your team is essential.
What’s in it for you:
We are a diverse and wonderfully weird bunch, that work hard so we can play hard whilst upholding our values. We love an excuse to be social and do everything we can from innovation day to daily Criterion FM radio. Not to mention Friday drinks, monthly meetings with an impressive food spread and our Bellringer recognition program.
We provide ongoing training and support and will give you the opportunity to work with some of Australia’s leading executives, entrepreneurs and public servants in an exciting, fast paced environment.
