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.

ACMI have a fantastic opportunity for an exceptional leader in building services operations to join our team.  The Building Operations Manager will manage the Facilities team, working collaboratively with internal stakeholders to ensure building systems, capital projects, infrastructure, construction and maintenance programs are fit for purpose. Additionally, you will play a key role in ACMI's renewal project team in the lead up to closure and during the 10-month construction and fit-out phase to ensure an outstanding renewal outcome.  The role is also responsible for managing tenancy arrangements, service partnerships and emergency management at ACMI. 

You will bring your extensive leadership experience at a senior management level in the delivery of building services within a major public facility as well as extensive experience in the management and maintenance of infrastructure, building services and the delivery of significant capital projects.  Your value will come from your ability to work collaboratively as part of a large multifaceted team and your demonstrated experience in delivering complex construction projects.
