Hi, I am Ari Siggins BA(SocSc), MHRM, CAHRI, GAICD. Workforce Strategist. Wicked People Problem Solver. Applied Leadership Coach. Alpaca Herder.
Here at The Curiosity Company, I like to do things a little differently. Driven by a sense of social justice and ethical trade, I'm here to ensure those businesses focused on making the world a little bit better (or maybe even a lot!) get access to the best talent and advice in the market.
I bring over 15 years' experience in senior management and C-suite HR and operational roles. I've worked across the health, state and federal government and NFP sectors and I am deeply passionate about for-purposes businesses getting the advice and service they deserve. Highly trained and deeply experienced, I have dealt with everything from explaining why a clandestine litter of free-range piglets roaming a city office could be problematic to executive and board terminations. From a strategic perspective, my operational experience means the solutions I design are built for the real world and focus on enabling rather than hampering the businesses I work with.
I have worked in or consulted to organisations as diverse as ESTA000 (the Victorian emergency services call centre), the Department of Home Affairs, Windana Drug and Alcohol Services, the Department of Human Services, Australian Community Support Organisation, Aboriginal Housing Victoria, InfoXchange, the Department of Defence, private health services, NDIS providers and many more in between. My professional experience is backed by 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. I am currently completing a law degree.
