Business Lead - Wildbear Digital
WildBear is media content company headquartered in Canberra with offices in Sydney and Brisbane. As an integrated factual content company, WildBear is a broad based production business working across television, theatrical, corporate, educational, and government communications.
WildBear’s clients include major international broadcasters such as the History and Discovery channels, National Geographic, and ABC TV. They work closely with Federal and State Government agencies, Museums and Cultural organisations, and a number of high profile private corporations (e.g. Netflix).
WildBear is looking to appoint a high performing Executive to lead the digital creation business focusing on corporate content, and further developing the fee for service business lines. This is a National role with room for international expansion.
This is an opportunity to elevate your career by continuing to grow an already successful, profitable business line and taking it to new heights. An ambitious and driven Media Executive will see a chance to grow into a key leadership role with WildBear, working closely with the CEO to expand WildBear’s operations.
The entrepreneurial minded will see an incredible chance to leverage a large, respected brand and network nationally and internationally. There is access to a huge back catalogue and stock footage library to help productise new service offerings that will support developing new business opportunities. You will have autonomy to further develop “the story” of Wildbear Digital, to promote the business’s success through social and drive a new commercial vision.
The ethically minded will find an opportunity to make a positive impact on communities by developing digital content around how stories are told about our history, conservation, culture, nature and social impact.
The role combines commercial management and business strategy, entrepreneurship, strategic account development and the opportunity to build exciting new products and services. This role will be less about designing and producing the content and materials, and more about leading the business area and being the face of WildBear’s digital offering.
The role involves creating opportunities across Australia using WildBear’s national trusted network of contacts across the three offices. Ideally this role will be based out of Canberra, however there is potential to work from WildBear’s offices in Sydney or Brisbane for the ideal candidate.
There is a detailed job description available on enquiry.
