Operations

Available Positions

Operations (Business/Technical)

This job role requires that you have an exceptionally keen eye for process improvement in every aspect of the business and/or technical system, understanding interaction and synthesis between technology and human capabilities at all stages of client acquisition, conversion and fulfilment. You should have and display an immense curiosity and dissatisfaction when interactions between many of different people and their tools become either ineffective or inefficient!

In the long-term, the scope for this job role includes assisting other staff on a day-to-day basis with client fulfilment duties and responsibilities. As you progress in your knowledge, abilities and expertise, you will be asked to support directors and executives in their efforts to shape and revise strategies over time for business and technical operations. You will be expected to increasingly take responsibility and leadership for tactical decisions in support of our overall business strategy and objectives. You should have a fundamental competency in general business management principles, systems analysis, productivity analysis and cost control, and project management (i.e., strategic planning, delivery estimates, project budgeting, staff scheduling, etc).

This job role forms an essential part of our cross-functional team structure, involving human resources, data analysts, researchers, administrators, marketing and sales teams, customer support and system developers. You should have “people skills” and be comfortable with both rational analysis and creative problem-solving, and have knowledge, interest or awareness of modern internet and mobile technologies. In short, you will need to support and/or oversee the (re)design and implementation of control processes that enhance the efficiency of production and project delivery, while ensuring client fulfilment is error free, efficient and that staff are highly effective in meeting customer requirements. You do not need to be an expert in all of these areas, but your familiarity, appreciation and high capacity for learning will be considered an asset to this company.
