The Regional Investment Corporation (RIC) has launched its first and major recruitment drive, calling for applications for a range of corporate, agri-finance and executive roles. The RIC is funded for up to 32 positions.
Work is also underway on the fitout of the Orange premises where the RIC will be based and these employees will work from.
The RIC is a new federal government agency that encourages growth, investment and resilience in Australia’s regional communities. It provides solutions for Australian farmers, who due to circumstances outside their control, are in financial need. The RIC’s low interest loans can make their future more certain. The RIC also provides finance for the construction of major water infrastructure projects to support regional economic growth.
Chair of the RIC Board, David Foster says having a federal government agency based in Orange will result in a significant economic impact in the region.
“We expect these roles to be filled by a range of professionals, both locals and those moving to Orange for a lifestyle change,” he said.
“The establishment team will play a vital role in shaping the agency’s culture and ethos, and be instrumental in helping to administer finance solutions for farmers and regional communities.
“The RIC will be a very customer-focussed workplace. We will be helping producers when they need assistance, and then helping them set up for the future. We will also be working proactively to ensure that producers are aware of the RIC and how we can support them and their business.
“If you really want to make difference to rural and regional Australia and have a diverse range of skills and experience, then the RIC is for you,” he said.
