Some things are set in stone, the rest are written in chalk.


This is a truly exciting role that is at the forefront of innovation in Australia and sits at the intersection of open innovation, collaboration and co-creation. 

Working closely with the Head of Partnerships and key members of the Stone & Chalk Leadership Team, the role of Partnerships Manager is central to S&Cs ability to execute on being a true strategic innovation partner for its corporate and Government partners and sponsors. 

The Partnerships Manager will report to the Head of Partnerships and work closely with the state General Managers, Community and Events teams to provide a structured and systematic approach to designing and delivering specific innovation programs with and between Government, Corporates, Start-ups and Scale-ups.

The Partnerships Manager will have responsibility for ongoing engagement with Stone & Chalk partners, relationship management, leading the strategic planning and execution of the innovation services we provide to our partners and sponsors.

Specific program(s) may vary in format and duration and include:

· Best practice strategic advisory

· Board and Executive Coaching

· Innovation Challenges

· Incubating corporate teams

· Executive immersion sessions

· Problem-solving workshops

· Scouting, scanning and reporting

· Culture and capability assessment and strategy development

· Start-up readiness enablers program

The key objectives of each program or initiative may vary, however, Stone & Chalk provide expertise, support and the activation of activities across 5 key pillars:

1. Reach and Reputation

2. Problem Solving

3. Technology and Start-up Pipeline

4. Start-up Readiness

5. Learning, Development and Talent

Generally, start-ups are looking for flagship customers to help commercialise their propositions and/or the opportunity to rapidly scale.

Ultimately, by working with quality ventures, corporates/government can innovate faster, cheaper and better than they currently are and start-ups can rapidly accelerate the time to commercialisation and scaling. Hence, in this delivery role as Programs Manager for Stone & Chalk you will be acting as a vital ‘innovation bridge’ which hugely benefits both entities.

The partnerships team exists to support the success of the start-ups and scale-ups, but also to encourage enterprise to apply the emerging technology being developed which is highly relevant and can contribute to industry growth and success simultaneously.


You are a team player with excellent organisational and communication skills. Ideally you have a background in corporate innovation, start-up growth, account management or consulting, with experience gained in key areas such as project management, co-ordination, new product development, business development, digital, technology or innovation scouting, or culture and capability development.

You possess a keen appreciation of how emerging technology is disrupting many industries across the world, but insight into the Australian and state-based industries too. You also understand and appreciate both the need and the challenge of outside-in corporate innovation and have ideally also been involved with start-up-corporate collaboration in the past.

You ideally have an intimate understanding of the pitfalls of trying to innovate within a large, established organisation and can help advise, guide and ensure such organisations are sufficiently prepared to undertake these programs successfully, particularly when it comes to engaging with start-ups. You are passionate about problem-solving.
