We know answering a job ad is hard. So, too, is reviewing applications. We do not expect a perfect fit to the advert. Simply the requisite attitude and attributes, commensurate with the experience you have had to date and at the level you wish you join us. We will enable and support you in becoming a perfect fit, at the level to which you aspire.
We do not want to miss you if you are for us – so we are seeking to remove the barriers for your application.
Apply with your CV and a covering letter. Explain why you fit, what you bring to the business, and to our clients. You will initially meet with a senior member of our team so that you may understand us, our values, and our principles. You will then meet others in our team so that we may understand you.
If you think you are for us, and we are for you, we encourage you to apply.
Our business is helping those with the courage to make a difference, succeed. We largely focus on the delivery of public services because that is where the most impact is to be felt. Delivered through the public and private sectors and at the intersection of the two.
We have delivered major breakthroughs for our clients: saving hundreds of millions of dollars, innovating, resolving, challenging, and turning around programs that are in disarray. Our work is national, addressing our clients most difficult and urgent challenges. We bring private sector acumen, applied appropriately, to the public sector.
It is a tough business. Standards are high, clients challenging, the work often difficult. It is also a supportive, collaborative and growth environment.
The best way to understand us, and who we are, is to hear it straight from our team. Visit our Careers page to hear what our consultants have to say about working at Kiah.
This role is hard work and not for everyone. We seek those who can think and do, with the tenacity, perseverance and resilience needed to make a difference. Those with the courage and temperament to deal with the uncertain and the unexpected. Those who are comfortable being uncomfortable.
Our consultants must be comfortable working with ambiguous and poorly defined requirements, alongside challenging stakeholders. They provide leadership through influence and service, are personable and engaging, and are prepared to work at any level to get the job done. You will mostly work in a team, but it might be a Kiah team, a client's team or a hybrid. Our clients expect you to work with them, alongside them - but not to them. As one client remarked we don’t consult too them, we deliver from the inside out.
Our focus is more about you and what you can achieve, rather than where you have been. Typically, you will:
Our success comes because we are different, not the same. You will have the courage to think differently, present differently. You will equally respect the contribution of the ordinary and the extraordinary, the intellectually agile and the purposeful practitioner. Your strategic and agile mind will allow you to link the concepts into executable strategies, without losing the detail for it to be executable.
You need not be a mathematician, engineer or scientist but you will be comfortable working with them. You will not be cowed by technology, willing to grasp concepts, if not the detail.
Management consulting builds on technical mastery. You will bring some speciality whether from IT and chemical engineering to public and international policy, from communications and change leadership to financial wizardry, business management to program and project management. However, your most special attribute will be your ability to think strategically, problem solve, accept alternate perspectives and servant leadership. We look for these attributes at every level and from every member of the organisation – commensurate with the skills and experience of the individual.
If you want to explore if you are for us, and we are for you, you do not have a moment to lose. Get in contact today.
If this sounds like you, apply now. Who knows where that adventure will lead – for both of us?
