Adelaide Symphony Orchestra

With an enviable international reputation for world class performances and a vital role at the heart of the South Australian community, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO) is one of the nation's most exciting performing arts organisations.

Reporting to the Managing Director, this pivotal role will join the Leadership Team and cover the full range of functions associated with human resources.  Key responsibilities include:

  • providing consulting services as a trusted advisor to the Managing Director and senior leaders in developing and delivering both strategic and operational HR initiatives;
  • facilitating talent management services including recruitment, induction, performance management and career development;
  • promoting a positive culture and administering a safe and healthy work environment for staff;
  • undertaking special projects as required.

Applications are invited from suitably qualified contemporary HR professionals with experience in developing and leading proactive and pragmatic HR services in a diverse organisation. Versatility, warmth, diplomacy, professionalism, vision, drive, energy, an internal service focus and excellent relationship building skills will also be required. 

Experience in the performing arts is not a prerequisite but a genuine affinity with the values and ethos of the ASO will be expected. Industrial relations experience would be an advantage.

This position is offered on a full time basis, however, flexibility for an outstanding candidate will certainly be considered in order to attract the right person.

This is a rare opportunity to join Adelaide’s largest performing arts company and make a significant contribution both to the organisation and to the cultural heart of the State.
