Things are continuing to grow here at Anecdote and we are again looking for someone to join our little crew.

We would love to work with

  • someone passionate about people; you love working with people, you’re interested in how people work in organisations; and you share our desire to restore humanity to the forefront of organising and organisations.
  • a person with 5 or more years working experience; it would be good if you had a degree in a people-related discipline (for example, organisational psychology, anthropology, KM, HR);
  • someone who has sound consulting experience and can work with clients to understand their needs and deliver against them;
  • someone who will enthusiastically embrace the Anecdote operating principles of: do good things; look after each other; and have a go.
  • a person with a great attitude to work, to life: this is far more important than skills.

What we will do for you

  • We will train you in all our techniques such as narrative collection, sensemaking, intervention design, storytelling, social network analysis, communities of practice development, and fostering knowledge transfer.
  • Provide a diversity of project types and activities that will stretch you and help you learn at a cracking pace.
  • Good coffee, great conversations and meeting and working with interesting people.

What you will be doing at Anecdote

  • Helping to develop and refine our sensemaking approaches based on our work in organisations, big and small, public and private sector.
  • Project activities including interviewing, focus group facilitation, research, presentations, and logistics.
  • Meeting and working with outstanding people who form part of the Anecdote global network of collaborators.

Is this you? Are you interested?

We will close the call for submissions on 27 April 2007.

You will need to live in either Canberra, Melbourne or Sydney for this job.

As you would expect, Anecdote provides a collegiate working environment. We’re a small, close-knit team that collaborates without ego or arrogance. Have a browse through our website and get a feel for the company you will be joining. Our perspectives, priorities and thoughts are published here and we think they provide insight into Anecdote’s philosophy.

    Like what you are saying but the only degree I hold past high school is cosmetology which is beutician and I never worked at that . I just have a God dependency and I ask help all day long from him for even the most minor things and he usually gives them to me . I wrote a book which doesn’t sell International Book Of Love a Dolls Like Us book by Sharon Wortman . Which says over and over again that love is the strongest force on Earth .
