Futures Jobs starting to emerge

Monday 6 April 2009

If there's one thing that a sense of panic and crisis causes it is 'focus'. Typically that focus will be geared around identifying the critical elements required for a certain level of performance to be achieved. Often that will also lead to an assessment of 'capability' matching - seeking to ensure that the required capabilities are matched to the intended future outcome for an organisation. So it is no surprise that over the past couple of years we've been seeing more organisations seeking staff with 'futures' skills. The two below are no different and if you're in the future fields or looking to enter it, they might appeal greatly

Southern Grampians Shire based in Hamilton are looking for a Director, Shire Futures.  This is a new department aimed at assisting the Shire to assess and develop its future environment across all aspects of business.  Certainly looks to be a great role and ideally positioned for anyone with strong futures skills and attracted to a package of around $130k.  The position description can be found at their website here

The second position is with Open Universities Australia, a consortium of seven Australian Universities.  The position 'Strategic Analyst' looks to be a high end advisory role with a solid opportunities to get your hands dirty doing some development work.  Although the salary is a tad on the light side, coming in at 'circa $100k' there is a performance bonus available which might make this more attractive.  I worked for one of the consortium partners before as their Strategy & Foresight Analyst so if you'd like to ask me what I did for almost three years, feel free to contact me here.  Further details for this role can be gained via the acting CEO Mr David Masters on 03 8628 2504 and resumes can be sent straight through to Suzette Oxley

Best of luck

2019 The International Year of the Cooperative

Every year I aim to identify what I think a major focus of the upcoming year will be and in that light I'm declaring 2019 the International Year of the Cooperative. I'm prompted by a multitude of signals that my daily research has uncovered, many of which will be familiar to you -
