About the Centre for Public Impact (CPI)
CPI is a not-for-profit founded by the Boston Consulting Group. Believing that governments can and want to do better for people, we work side-by-side with governments — and all those who help them — to reimagine government, and turn ideas into action, to bring about better outcomes for everyone.
We are a small organisation, and only five years old, but already our global footprint is expansive and we partner with some of the biggest names in government, academia and public sector innovation in the world. CPI ANZ was only established in March of this year. We’ve been working to build a presence, strong relationships, and a pipeline of work in ANZ, and, on the basis of that foundational work, we now feel ready to bring a new member into the ANZ team.
courageous - we have the courage to speak the truth, to challenge without fear and tackle the difficult questions
respectful - we respect differences, we seek to understand them and we look out for one another
optimistic - we are positive about what we and governments can do for our societies
inclusive - we are non partisan, we work together and seek ideas and solutions across the divides
We encourage applicants from all backgrounds to apply. This includes candidates that have previously found it hard to be considered for other positions on the basis of their qualifications, disabilities, personal background or life events. If you would like to apply for the position but see a barrier to joining us, please do apply and we will work with you to find a solution.
What you’ll be doing:
As a Program Manager in the ANZ team, you’ll be working closely with the Director (and only other current team member!) across programs, research and thought leadership.
This is an exciting opportunity to work in a start-up environment to build CPI’s presence in Australia and New Zealand, but will require a willingness to work across the full spectrum of tasks - from administrative work to blue sky thinking. Activities will include:
Playing both a lead and supporting role across various CPI ANZ programs
Playing both a lead and supporting role across various CPI ANZ research projects
Writing articles and blogs and giving presentations based on your experiences, passions and program/research work.
Contributing to team culture and a self-organised way of working
Supporting our mission to build a sustainable future for CPI ANZ.
The person we’re looking for will:
Be passionate about reimagining government
Have a solid understanding of how government works
Be confident to lead conversations with senior stakeholders
Have strong organisational skills and experience with balancing competing priorities
Be willing to take initiative and work autonomously
Be comfortable with ambiguity and the complexity of our work, where anything is possible but not always known in advance
Be curious and eager to learn
Be willing to stretch beyond the comfort zone to the growth zone
Be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, and in ways which look quite different to a 9am-5pm style of job.
Have excellent written and communication skills
Feel excited about the idea of working in a startup environment and with a very small team
We look forward to receiving your application via the Applied platform. If you have any questions about this position or for information, Rebecca Hunt, Global People and Operations Coordinator, is happy to help.
