Job Description
Netflix's greatest impact is in storytelling. Stories like 13th, Disclosure, Selena, Da 5 Bloods, Special and The Half of It broaden representation, empathy and understanding. We create and connect these stories to people all around the globe - removing the barriers of language, device, ability or connectivity. Better representation on-screen starts with representation in the office. Our work has to be internal first, so it can impact what we do externally. We believe we'll do that better if our employees come from different backgrounds, and if we create an environment of inclusion and belonging for them.

Diversity and inclusion unlocks our ability to innovate and to be creative. It brings different lived experiences and perspectives to a problem, so that we're solving them in new ways. And we're able to better entertain our current and future members and make an impact in the world. When we get that right, magic is possible. We're uplifting stories about Black British lives. We're chronicling the life of a gay man with cerebral palsy on TV, a first. We're moving some of our cash into Black banks. Inclusion is at the heart of so many of these moments.

In line with our focus on diversity, applications are strongly encouraged from Indigenous Australians, people from a range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds, people with disability and LGBTIQ+ individuals.

At Grow Creative, our mission is to meet the headwinds of capacity, skills and inclusion gaps that challenge our global content strategy by using world class training, education and pipelining of a new generation of storytellers and crew that mirror the inclusiveness and diversity of our global audience.

As we look to develop pipelines of ATL and BTL jobs from educational institutions and training programs to our productions, there's a need for someone to coordinate with all the regional training partners, internal stakeholders, and governmental entities. This individual will help establish and maintain a sustainable infrastructure that will ultimately support a viable pipeline of talent to the regional media industry. The role will aid in filling local talent gaps, upskilling the local workforce, increasing inclusion and diversity, and building an understanding of Netflix needs in local markets.

The successful candidate will have at least 5 - 7 years of regional AV Industry experience with a deep familiarity of the local creative and production landscape. A background developing industry relationships and working with local organizations is required. Experience building educational programs, managing events, and working with government agencies across the region is preferred.

Key Responsibilities:
• Help define and execute talent pipeline strategies in concert with the Grow Creative regional task force groups.
• Plan and aid in the implementation of apprenticeship and educational initiatives
• Align with all cross-functional teams to effectively contribute to growing in-region talent, increasing the pool of ATL and BTL roles through a diversity lens, and aiding in incentives through on-the-job training and educational programs.
• Develop an outreach strategy along with internal stakeholders to build our connection to local communities.
• Identify, establish and manage partnerships with local learning institutions and not-for-profit entities to align programs with Netflix and industry needs
• Help facilitate business-to-business events and educational sessions in region
• Travel regionally to support local Grow Creative goals.
• Maintain the day-to-day correspondence and coordination with regional partners.
• Track Talent: Identify and track participants from programs for potential Netflix content development and production so that we can pull talent into our productions and continue to develop them on our shows.
• Document and measure the success of initiatives.
• Manage local Grow Creative budget.

Experience Required:
• Knowledge of the Australian regional creative ecosystem and producing landscape (5-10 years experience). Including creators, producers, film schools, festivals and other potential partner-run training programs, government departments and other local organizations.
• Working knowledge of the Australian television development process.
• Knowledge of apprenticeship programs but experience not required.
• Excellent industry relationships and interpersonal skills.
• Language ability in English.
