What do you think of when you hear IBM? Mainframes? Hard drives? The Personal Computer?
We don't sell tabulating machines, laptops or intel servers anymore - we're a new IBM, and possibly not like you imagined. For a start, we use MAC's (yes, really!), and our leaders wear jeans. We apply design thinking - and have the post-its to prove it. We enable startups to grow, and are transforming healthcare - we're even curing disease! We are defining the cognitive era. And this is just the beginning. What can YOU do with IBM?

We are looking for an Executive Succession and Development Partner to join our team. You will be responsible for developing the leadership talent strategy for the IBM A/NZ and a selection of brands across the AP market; recommending action plans to build a strong leadership pipeline, manage leadership succession and providing a comprehensive client experience.

  • Proactively identify skill gaps and development solutions
  • Evaluate the strength of the leadership pipeline
  • Provide executive career coaching and guidance
  • Be accountable for progress towards diversity
  • Drive talent reviews
  • Work closely with the General Manager and HR Director to ensure we are supporting growth and advancement of the executive leadership team with speed and quality
What skills will I need?
  • Thought-leadership
  • Confident in their opinion
  • Strong relationship management
  • Trusted advisor
  • Strong communication - both verbal and written

What experience do I need?
