To be suitable for this role you will need to have experience in the below key accountabilities:

  • Demonstrated capacity to develop mutually beneficial long-term relationships with clients and stakeholders to achieve targets
  • Demonstrated ability to build client relationships at senior levels, and lead a needs analysis discussion with the client to assist them to recognise needs which Swinburne Edge can solve for.
  • Ability to effectively work with cross-functional teams in a complex organisational structure to achieve both client outcomes and revenue targets.
