We’re looking for an experienced and connected Director of Investor Relations to join our Perth team.
As Western Australia's leading financial PR firm we are looking for the right person to lead and deliver the continued growth of this important part of our business. We topped the Business News league table for both the number and value (~US$3.7bn) of capital market transactions advised on in 2016, and according to Mergermarkets, over the past 12 years have advised on 115 M&A transactions with a combined value of US$126bn.

The Investor Relations Director will hold a relevant tertiary financial / journalism / public relations qualification and possess natural ability to lead and grow a team of experienced investor relations consultants.
Our ideal candidate will have 10 to 15 years' experience in a similar, senior role and a proven track record in general management functions including team leadership, strategy development, planning and budget control. You should have a strong work ethic and be able to demonstrate your ability to achieve personal revenue targets while driving business development to ensure the productivity of the investor relations and broader team. 
You should have an impressive portfolio of corporate transactional, investor relations experience and board-level consulting experience. Strong networks in the corporate sector, investor community, capital markets and financial media throughout Australia, and ideally in other major capital markets, will be a distinct advantage. 
We are looking for a candidate with the intelligence, foresight and drive to lead the practice of investor relations in a digital age, and who can deliver a contemporary investor relations offering.
We offer flexibility in a health-conscious office, conveniently located near the Perth CBD and excellent transport links. The right person will be offered competitive remuneration based on experience, and will participate in a generous executive incentive scheme.
