There is no hard job description but the following may offer some insight into what we anticipate at the varying levels. We seek individuals who are dynamic, intellectually agile and personable. They will be inquisitive and have an ability to research and quickly comprehend the essential details of a wide range of topics. Typically broadly read, they will be able to articulate complex concepts both verbally and in good writing. They will be well presented and present well.
Our principals tend to have had executive experience in the public and private sector, most probably managed a P&L. We will expect a proven ability to manage a team, respected in the industry as a leader and a demonstrated ability to manage complex programs of work. Typically principals lead assignments.
Kiah Consultants will have all of the same attributes though probably with a narrower set of experiences. It is expected that they will have a domain expertise such as IT, behavioral economics, engineering or similar. They typically support principals and may lead less complex assignments.
Analysts will typically fall towards the graduate end of experience, perhaps with a few years of experience and some specific domain knowledge. They typically work under the guidance of principals and consultants but will be expected to be self-starters, confident, capable and able to quickly operate with limited direction.
Some work is explicit in its domain knowledge. Our span is broad covering Defence systems engineering, IT and general project management, workplace health and safety, risk and compliance, complex procurement to name a few. We have also pursued consultant’s passions – where they have shown that they can build a sustainable business around that passion.
You, and your clients, will enjoy the benefits of being part of the Kiah Community: a community of like minded, capable, people seeking to deliver better outcomes to the clients. You will enjoy corporate and peer support, a quality process, IP and toolsets, and access to more complex assignments than can be achieved as an individual.
