AustCyber seeks managers for Qld innovation nodes

AustCyber is on the lookout for experienced executives to manage two of the planned Queensland AustCyber innovation nodes.

The company is seeking a full-time manager for the Brisbane innovation node and a part-time manage of the Townsville node.

Selected applicants will coordinate the activities of their respective innovation nodes, and will lead efforts to work with government, industry and academia to raise awareness and develop cybersecurity capability in the state.

Key responsibilities will include identifying and establishing relationships with these stakeholders, as well as developing a vision to raise SME awareness of the cybersecurity threat environment and develop key industry sector cybersecurity resilience.

The managers will also be responsible for coordinating node activities, including the establishment of a node advisory group, and maintaining these activities within budgetary and resource constraints.

The full time role will have a salary range of $120,000–$145,000.

Essential skills and attributes include proven industry and business development skills with a clear understanding of cybersecurity concepts and the economic growth opportunities in the industry, as well as experience leading complex projects and multidisciplinary teams. A background in technical cybersecurity skills and credentials will be preferred.

AustCyber and the Queensland Government recently revealed plans to open the three new centres in Brisbane, Townsville and the Sunshine Coast as part of the national innovation node strategy.

The three nodes will focus on the areas of defence, advanced manufacturing, health and education.
