Why do Members join AIEA?
A Sense of Belonging
There are some modern-day work environs that are just plain lonely. Principal amongst them is just being an Interim Manager. Bye and large, Interim Managers work from home and are transient visitors to other workplaces when on assignment.
This also applies to sole traders, freelancers, consultants, retrenched executives and senior executives who are between jobs. These worthy people crave the company of similar people who understand what this lifestyle is like – the drawbacks and the benefits. AIEA provides this fellowship, both face-to-face with regular events and online.
AIEA is the Congregation Point for Interim Management in Australasia.
Each member’s expertise is recognised by the provision of an AIEA post-nominal. They are:
Some members like to raise their profile by volunteering as an event speaker or MC.
- MAIEA Full Member

- FAIEA Fellow – can demonstrate 15+ years of experience
- BAIEA Business Member
Every member can opt-in to have their profiles accessed by the other members. Experience has shown that many work opportunities are passed from member to member. The Directory is positioned in the Members Only section and is not accessible by non-members. It can also be accessed by members on their smart-phones using the Member App.
The AIEA Member App is available on IOS and Android devices and brings the member functionality to the smartphone and tablet. It gives members the ability to update their profile, book Event tickets and check on bookings. They can access the Member Directory and directly contact their fellow members.
One of the defining characteristics of an Interim Manager is that they are always looking for their next assignments. In 2016, AIEA created a jobs board to focus on the type of work that the members sought. These interim, contract, part-time and project assignments are sometimes difficult to find through normal, recruitment agency channels. These roles span a wide range of requirements but they all have this in common – they are targeted at senior, professional people who are prepared to provide their services in a flexible way.
The AIEA-Jobs board is free to all individual members and also free to Business Members who take advantage of the service to find the senior executives for their short-term needs. These paid jobs are in the Members Only section of the website.
