Matrix On Board Consulting and Training is a boutique, Territory-based consultancy providing consulting, training and evaluation services to support the non-profit sector and our clients to increase their capacity to achieve their mission. We partner with non-profit organisations across Australia, with particular expertise in remote locations and organisations working with indigenous communities.
At Matrix, you’ll be working on diverse, meaningful projects that make real, sustainable change and impact positively on people's lives and livelihoods. With outback travel opportunities, learning and professional challenges and a great team of like-minded peers, it’s a rare opportunity to ‘give back’ for a seasoned senior executive with a background in the non-profit world.
You’ll work with clients across the non-profit sector, from government to small social enterprises, supporting them to build their capabilities and deliver on their mission. Projects ranging from multi-year evaluations to single day workshop facilitations will flex your professional skillset; and you’ll use a range of business, planning and analysis methodologies.
Collaborating with our team (who are spread across the country) and with clients will at times require travel in remote outback NT and South Australia; and Zoom is a critical tool for us. You’ll be based in Alice Springs at Matrix’s head office, reporting to our Darwin-based Consulting General Manager.
There’s plenty of collegiate support and well established, proven processes and methodologies; and you’ll be joining a company with a strong well established (and well deserved) reputation.
We expect that you’ll have professional expertise such as comes from experience at CEO or similar senior level roles in the non-profit world; with capabilities in corporate services, financial sustainability, leading people and managing complex stakeholder relationships (among others).
You’ll have a sound understanding of contemporary business methodologies, such as strategic and business planning, monitoring and evaluations and project management. Your experience will include a good understanding of the Northern Territory / Central Australian context - and as we’re looking for ‘on the ground’ presence at our head office, you’ll either be currently living in Alice Springs or prepared to relocate independently.
You’ll need a real curiosity about other people’s situation and issues; courage to work outside your comfort zone and content specialisation; and a practical, pragmatic approach to developing strategies that will work on the ground. You’ll be comfortable working cross-culturally, both independently and in small teams.
Ideally, your industry networks and expertise will enable you to broaden our client base and build Matrix’s impact and reputation.
In this role, no two days will be the same. You’ll work across a wide range of not for profit sectors on projects both within and outside your comfort zone. You will work in the office, remotely from home and under trees in red dirt paddocks; as part of a project team and as a solo consultant. And if we’re the right fit, you’ll love the job, the work and the team. We’re looking forward to welcoming you.
Salary will be negotiated with great candidates, likely in the range of $85-$100k; plus super and benefits.
