About Ari

Hi, I am Ari Siggins BA(SocSc), MHRM, CAHRI, GAICD. Workforce Strategist. Wicked People Problem Solver. Career and Leadership Coach. Alpaca Herder.


I work with bosses who want to build great workplaces and individuals wanting to improve their experience of work.

Far from the pen-pushing, bureaucratic HR stereotype, I have run things. 300 seat call centres. A hospital. Many teams of varying sizes. As a result, the solutions I bring, though grounded in lawful employment practice, are operationally savvy and highly strategic.


My executive and consulting career spans several industries, including professional services, private healthcare and State and Federal Government. I have extensive board liaison experience, hold a Bachelor of Arts and Social Science, a Master of Human Resources Management, I am a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and a Certified Professional Member of the Australian Human Resources Institute.

Organisations I have worked with or consulted to include Metro Pain Group, AUSTRAC, St Vincent de Paul, the Accident Compensation and Conciliation Service, and many more.


Organisations look to me for executable strategies to help them build great workplaces. We might focus on workforce design, resolving tough people problems, building capability or engagement or developing your or your team's leadership skills. Or maybe a mix of those things depending on what you need.


Individuals hire me to work with them as a thought partner; helping them explore ideas about how to manage major change program for their business, resolve complex people issues or assist them with developing their leadership skills. I also run the careers consultancy Curious Careers.

Book a time to chat to see how I help - and if I can't I'll always do my best to point you in the direction of someone who can.

And it's true about the alpaca herding.
