Working at AHRI

National Office

AHRI's national office in Melbourne employs 41 full time and seven part-time employees in research and development, event management, training facilitation and administration, customer service, corporate sales, marketing and communications, digital media, and accounting.

We strive to have a diverse workforce and value the differences between people and the contribution these differences make to our business. The organisation has a culture of collaboration and high performance.

Employment opportunities in AHRI's national office are advertised through specialised and general job boards. In addition, AHRI utilises the Australian Government Disability Employment Services.

Volunteer as an AHRI Councillor

AHRI State Councils provide a valuable contribution to AHRI as they give members the opportunity to help drive the development of the HR profession and influence AHRI's strategic direction.

Members who wish to serve as member of a State Council do so in a voluntary capacity. All current AHRI professional members are eligible to run for council and must be elected in as part of AHRI's annual council elections - normally held in August of each year.

Volunteer as an AHRI Network Convenor

AHRI Networks are groups of HR professionals that share your interests and reside in your regional area. Networks are run by AHRI members that volunteer their time and expertise to expand the scope of knowledge in a specific HR area of interest.

Each network is led by a convenor whose role is to work closely with the AHRI National Office on a range of activities. AHRI Networks are important as they ensure there is a close link between AHRI and practicing and active HR professionals across Australia.

The role of the Network convenor is to generate professional development activity within their Network, such as Network Forums, maintain a web profile, contribute to the AHRI body of knowledge and represent AHRI when interacting with members at Network activities. Where possible, the Convenor will attend each Forum and will have overall responsibility for managing the event onsite.

How to get involved with AHRI Networks

AHRI members interesting in joining an existing AHRI Network or establishing a new Network are required to express their interest in writing including their resume and the names of the supporting committee members (for existing Network committee members) for review by the AHRI Research and Development department, and the local AHRI council.

If successful, an induction process will follow with ongoing support from the AHRI Events Team and the local council.


Requirements of Network convenors

  • Network convenors must be an AHRI member (preferably a professional member)
  • The Convenor is required to have the support of at least two other committee members (may include a state council representative) to assist with forum planning, sourcing speakers and providing varied knowledge and connections
  • Network Convenors should be known to, and approved by, the local state council
  • Network Convenors may not use AHRI events and forums as a platform to promote their own business


Professional members receive free professional indemnity insurance as part of their membership.
