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 a Superhero!

Location: Broome WA, Australia

Job Type: We can work with you, if your right for us!

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 five 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.

However, 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.

What’s involved?

You’ll be a superhero, able to adapt like a chameleon, talk the hind legs off a donkey 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.

To break it down, your skills could be applied over all or some of the below (don’t worry, we don’t expect you to be able to do all of them):

  • Low-level office tasks
  • Organising office events like staff birthdays
  • Team training, meeting rooms and staff calendars
  • Managing customer enquiries and directing them to relevant team members
  • Basic account reconciliation
  • A little bit of assistant stuff for our CEO and Executives
  • Diary and email management
  • Organising travel
  • Assist with communications, minute taking, confirmations etc
  • Ordering and managing catering requests

We’ve got a lot on this year (to say the least), so we’re looking for someone who can take the pressure down and remain unflappable in times of high stress. Trust is key and we do get the keys to organise major announcements and exciting dignitary visits, so understanding what happens at work stays at work is a big thing for us.

Do you have what it takes?

This is a role for a positive, proactive legend who’s keen to get stuck in and just make things happen. We have a lot of fun and you will get heaps of great opportunities to build your career with us, often getting exposure to game changing initiatives and firsts for the Kimberley.

You will also need:

  • The ability to pre-empt the needs of our CEO and Executive (and eventually mind read, well, give it a go anyway)
  • A very high level of confidentiality – like, Fort Knox level
  • Experience in a reception/administration/office position
  • A thirst for learning and soaking it up like a sponge
  • The ability to take initiative and pitch in and help with anything and everything
  • Strong organisational skills
  • Exceptional MS Office skills
  • Practical, personable and the ability to manage pressure
  • High attention to detail
  • Solution focused
