INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
About the Company
Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA) is the peak trade body representing video game platform holders, developers, publishers and distributors in Australia and New Zealand.
We are a small team focussed on delivering positive and tangible outcomes for the industry through effective advocacy, lobbying, events, research and communications.
About the Role
This is a very diverse role crossing many aspects of the games development industry. We are after someone who will represent and grow our development membership, by providing them a ‘voice’ to government and industry, speaking both to and for the Australian video games development sector. The role reports in to the CEO and will work collaboratively with all the IGEA team.
As part of the team, the incumbent would engage with relevant State, Territory and Commonwealth agencies, departments and politicians, advocating on behalf of the industry. This will be as varied as managing, organising and attending industry or trade events or working directly with policy makers from within government.
There will be an expectation that the successful candidate will ensure that our business understands the needs of the development sector and that programs are put in place to support the industry. This will in turn offer a value proposition to members and potential members, with the incumbent working to increase the membership.
