Position Details

Situated at the very heart of Melbourne in Federation Square, ACMI explores the rapid evolution and astonishing creativity of the moving image with a vibrant, multilayered program of exhibitions, screenings, installations and commissions, festivals, and public, industry & education programs.  ACMI is the most successful museum of its kind in the world.  It plays a vital part in establishing Melbourne as a global cultural destination. In 2017/18, ACMI attracted 1.55 million visitors to its Federation Square site, and 454,200 visitors to its national and international exhibition touring program.

As we rapidly evolve towards a knowledge economy, ACMI presents its stories and objects in unique ways, spanning the conventions of traditional museums and reflecting the innovation and evolution of the moving image in our fast-moving world.  We are embarking on a visionary $40m redevelopment that will transform the institution, overhauling our permanent exhibition, dramatically improving the visitor experience, integrating cutting-edge technology and expanding our education programs. ACMI's Fed Square site is planned to close for the redevelopment from May 2019.

Our Deputy CEO is looking for an experienced Executive Assistant to support him and his broader Commercial & Operations Group.  This role is responsible for managing a busy executive and his schedule, coordinating government reporting and various committees and meetings.  The role will also supervise our corporate Receptionist.  This is an opportunity for you to work as part of a cross disciplinary team and utilise your extensive experience in executive level administrative and operational support functions to support the Commercial & Operations Group.

You will bring a depth and breadth of administrative experience, specifically at the executive level with the ability to exercise sound judgement across a range of matters and to prioritise conflicting deliverables whilst working autonomously.   

Your collaborative approach to managing stakeholders will enable you to coordinate outcomes across all areas of the organisation and your high level of computer proficiency will pull it all together.  Your knack for identifying improvements to systems and processes will make you an invaluable member of the team.   

This Grade 3 role is available until June 2020 with a commencing salary of $68,884 plus super, with the possibility of an extension.  To apply, follow the online application process. Applications should provide a 500 word response and a brief resume, demonstrating their ability to meet the requirements of the role outlined within the position description.
