NAIF was established by the Federal Government in 2016 with a goal to drive public benefit, economic and population growth and indigenous involvement in northern Australia.
In addition to its existing mandate - a $5billion lending facility, which has already successfully made 23 investments - it is about to receive its first equity commitment of $500 million.
The goal is to initially target equity investments of up to $50million, taking positions of between 10 – 25 % across a broad range of sectors. Strategies could encompass direct project equity, listed equities, preference shares, mezzanine debt as well as equity funds.
As a result, a new and exciting opportunity exists for an Investment Director to lead and champion NAIF’s new equity investment offering. Working in partnership with the sector leads across Resources, Transport, Energy(renewables/clean), Social Infrastructure, Tourism & Leisure, Agriculture/Water as well as emerging sectors such as Manufacturing and Telecommunications you will be front and centre in driving the development of the groups’ equity investment pipeline and equity capability across the whole Investment platform.
Candidates will have 10 years plus experience in originating, structuring and executing equity and potentially structured debt investments. A broad network and varied deal list both by sector and state would be welcome and a collaborative, positive “can do” mindset is seen as a must. This is viewed as a high profile and key appointment and as such you must be able to display superior stakeholder management skills as well ab be able to deal effectively with clients, investors as well as key government contacts .

Applicants must have full working rights in place for Australia to be considered for this opportunity.
