Want to help build thriving regions?

Join us at the RIC. The Regional Investment Corporation (RIC) is recruiting, calling for applications for a range of corporate, agri-finance, business development and program manager roles.

The RIC opened 1 July 2018 and provides affordable finance for farmers to modernise and diversify their business, and state and territory governments for transformative water projects.

CEO Bruce King said it was an exciting time to join the RIC.

“We are a start-up government agency, charged with building resilient and future-focused regional communities,” Bruce King said.

“In our first year of operation we’ve approved finance for over 160 farmers to make their future more certain, launched a new disaster product for flood-impacted producers, and we have two new loans in the pipeline – the future is bright.

“At the RIC you’ll do work that is meaningful, diverse and challenging and work that makes a real difference to lives of rural and regional Australians.”

The RIC’s HR Manager Ben Casey joined the organisation earlier in the year, making the tree change from Sydney.

“What has been interesting is the fact that we are a brand-new agency. That means we are building the organisation from the beginning in a positive and collaborative way. It also gives us the opportunity to establish the team, the processes, the products and the culture,” Ben Casey said.

Credit Officer Amanda Lukies made the move from commercial lending to the RIC and hasn’t looked back.

“What I love is being able to see the bigger picture of what we are doing here. I am developing new skills and being exposed to the whole loan process. As we are launching new products, that means we are building everything from scratch. It’s a great opportunity to learn and influence things outside my normal sphere of responsibility,” Amanda Lukies said.

Applications open 5 August 2019 and close 26 August 2019 at 10:00am (AEST).
