Business Membership

Business Member (BAIEA)

More and more businesses are taking advantage of outsourcing to bring in skills and experience “on demand”. Our individual members are broadly experienced, senior management level executives who are able and willing to fill short term, implementation, project and board level roles. The majority of members will accept longer term opportunities.

AIEA welcomes organisations with complementary interests to join as Business Members. Suitable organisations would be:

  • Professional bodies that attract the demography inhabited by AIEA members. These would be centred on a common expertise (accounting, engineering, export, etc.)
  • Government and non-government bodies that regulate the professional standards of executive managers.
  • Academic bodies, such as Universities, that wish to develop relationships with business institutes such as AIEA.
  • Recruitment and employment companies that specialise in the placement of senior executives into interim roles.
  • Business and NFP Organisations that regularly utilise the services of Interim Executives

Benefits of Business Membership

The opportunity to regularly communicate with a group or professionals who are both genuinely qualified to take on challenging roles and who have made their availability known is quite rare. The limitations of relying on personal networks are the same for both Executives and the Corporates who wish to engage them.

AIEA is the answer for both our Members and the business who want to know them!

AIEA welcomes Business Members to join us in order to offer roles to our members and also to provide them with executive services offers.
