Business Member (BAIEA)

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 Corporate Affiliates. 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 and permanent roles.
