Reporting to the Associate Director - Investments within FAC’s Investments Team, the Investment Analyst will work on a range of investment deals at any point in time across the life cycle of proposal development, from due diligence to tailoring of finance options and the development of investment proposals. The Investment Analyst will work collaboratively with the FAC’s Business Advisory team, contributing to building the capacity and pipeline of the Indigenous business sector in Australia.

The role includes credit analysis, ownership and delivery of investment proposals from a debt lens, risk assessment and mitigation, and monitoring and tracking of post-funding investments conducted from a relationship-based approach. Great communicators, collaborators and curious minds are encouraged to learn more and apply.
