The Australian Information and Industry Association (AIIA) is getting ready for a restructure of its administrative back office, with jobs in the secretariat set to go as a result.
Suzanne Campbell, CEO of the AIIA, announced the restructure on Friday, following a strategic review into operations.
The secretariat, according to Campbell, takes care of the day-to-day administrative tasks in the AIIA, and helps to coordinate events like the iAwards. The administrative group also handles government relations and policy meetings, Campbell said.
Campbell added that such activities are required to streamline operations.
"We're reducing the overall size of the [secretariat] team, and we're reallocating responsibilities within the team. This is normal business operation to make sure we're focussed in the right areas to support our members.
"It's about being agile and sustainable as an organisation to support our members," Campbell told ZDNet Australia.
Campbell wouldn't be drawn on how many staff would go in the restructure, saying only that they would be offered voluntary redundancies rather than face the sack.
The industry group chief did say, however, that the size of the administrative unit would be less than 10 staff by the time the restructure is complete.
