Have you been looking for that perfect role that will combine your business know-how, relationship building skills and passion for commercialisation of new products and services?

Multifaceted - this is not your usual BDM role!

The Industry Capability Network (ICN) is the ultimate business network. Established over 30 years ago to increase economic activity and employment opportunities for local industry, it has grown and matured to develop the largest database of its' kind - connecting business large and small across Australia and New Zealand.

Let's face it - there is no better time than now to be at the forefront of facilitating business in our region. ICNL coordinates the national network that brings together Australia’s best SMEs so that contracts and jobs stay in local communities.  Over the years, the network has helped local businesses find over $30 billion worth of contracts to keep them working and growing, the BDM will continue this exceptional work, and more.

So what makes this BDM role so special? The person in it of course!

We are looking for someone business savvy, able to work with a loyal and experienced network across Australia. While supply-chain management and business data intelligence are the core business here, there is no need to be a specialist in these fields; instead you will be a relationship specialist with highly developed stakeholder management skills and a commercial approach to developing new markets and diversify revenue streams.

You will be intelligent and able to strategically plan your way through to success, the business operations are complex so you can't put pressure on yourself to hit the ground running immediately. The person for this role will be happy to be guided by the business leader, working closely to establish a solid foundation of knowledge before gaining more autonomy and making their impact felt. We need someone who is happy learning to walk before they can run here - knowledge is the key with your stakeholder base.

Finally, the one classic BDM trait you do bring is resilience and an ability to bounce back quickly from set-backs!

OK, much more to say but we think you get the gist of it. All that is left to do is apply for this great role! Please submit your CV along with a cover letter stating clearly what makes you the perfect candidate for this exact role with ICN. We are moving quickly, so please don't wait around!
