A social enterprise that has been able to provide work experience to 18 refugees, veterans, and asylum seekers in the last two years. The single biggest issue that many of these people face is finding their first job in Australia. We believe that everyone deserves a chance and so we started our own venture to offer people from these backgrounds their first jobs. We provide those jobs in our factory in Laverton which manufactures high-quality paper tubes for customers in various industries throughout Australia.
A unique opportunity for an operationally-focused leader, ideally from the paper/manufacturing background to become the head of a social enterprise. Moving into full general management will take 1-2 years, depending on your experience and aptitude. Until then, you will work as the second-in-command to our current general manager. Ultimately, this will become a role akin to a small business owner overseeing the P&L, sales, suppliers, engineering/maintenance, operations, and finances. We understand that, in most instances, candidates will have their primary experience in one or two of those areas, and learn the rest.
This is a true business-leader role reporting directly to the board of directors, as opposed to an employee. The bulk of your compensation will be tied to performance on both financial and social metrics assessed at quarterly board meetings. Equity stakes may be available for those who are confident of their success.
