Looking to change careers, or develop your skills in a new environment, take a look at the job opportunities at the Broome Chamber of Commerce Inc. 

A job for an Accounts Guru

Location: Broome WA, Australia

Job Type: We can work with you, if you’re right for us, ideally the position would be fulltime or at a minimum school hours. 

The who, the what and the where.

Broome Chamber is a not-for-profit, directed by our voluntary Executive Committee and lead by our CEO. With a close-knit team of six staff dedicated to delivering on all fronts and upholding an impeccable reputation. We are genuinely passionate about what we do and the way we support our members. We offer a growing range of services and continue to advance as the peak industry body for business representation in Broome. Our office is beautiful, in a prime location overlooking the bay and Streeters Jetty. You will have your own desk in an open planned office working with a cohesive team that is supportive, friendly, and willing to help where needed. Our working environment is unique as we all have very different roles that contribute to a much larger framework, so you can expect a non-competitive, inclusive, and thriving working team. We are a small operation; we manage our own IT, and we all pitch in with spot vacuuming and emptying the bins.

We are part of a much bigger network with Chambers across Australia and internationally, who all have a strong commitment to their members and the business community at hand. You’ll always find the answer through collaboration, or colleagues at another Chamber so you can look forward to reaping all the benefits that come with that and networking opportunities at a national standard.

What’s involved?

You’ll be a Xero guru, able to problem solve, communicate effectively, and bring an element of passion to our team. You’ll be able to work independently, as part of a team and be happy to take on responsibility and use your own initiative. The Broome Chamber is in a very exciting period of growth and we are ready to implement change, your innovative ideas and suggestions could make a real difference and you have the opportunity to really shine through implementing sustainable and automated practices.
