ROLE BACKGROUND AND DESCRIPTION As the Strategy Manager, you’ll help drive all areas of the Strategy Team’s responsibilities and goals, namely to get the internal strategy process humming, to guide the Corporate Strategy ship, and to become a centre of excellence in commercial insights and collateral. As Future Super continues to scale, you’ll be key in driving strategic moves for the company.

You’ll also be identifying opportunities for, and running, cross-functional projects and sprints, for example running tests to optimise the member experience. - Build out our commercial thinking, insights and resources You’ll have responsibility for analysing internal data (both for reporting and ad-hoc topics) and generating & sharing insights with relevant members of the business, especially for member data. You’ll also be involved in designing frameworks for the company (examples from this year include cross-functional collaboration and acquisition assessment frameworks). YOU’LL LOVE THIS ROLE IF: - You are keen to leverage your consulting toolkit to add value in a small but fast-growing business - You love working across a wide range of topics, are keen to roll your sleeves up, and to have exposure to a more operational role - You want a role with impact, both for the company itself and the rest of the world

YOU’LL LOVE WORKING HERE WITH: - A close-knit team that prioritises integrity, self-development and fun at work - Heaps of flexibility to fit work into your life (not your life around our work) and the opportunity to work with your manager to define what that looks like for you now and in the future - 14 weeks’ paid parental leave for all genders and a generous parental superannuation package, Employee Assistance Program (EAP), formal training and development with continuous improvement opportunities, a continuous supply of healthy office snacks (if/when you’re in the office) and membership to Bicycle NSW as part of our sustainable transport policy - Future Super is an equal opportunity employer – we provide flexible working hours, the option to work from home and a laptop you can use to work remotely (this used to be a more differentiating dot-point but is still true)
