The Opportunity

2800 years ago, for the first time in Western Text, the word mentor was referred to in Homer’s Odyssey. Since then, mentoring has been a certain way: a relationship without structure, without end points, and often without measurable change. In 2004, we invented a new idea: structured mentoring. With engineering and design principles, we scaffolded an architecture around an age old idea to create a tool for the world that can solve educational inequality for our most marginalised students. Since then, AIME has been solving seemingly unsolvable challenges around the young and disadvantaged by closing the educational gap for Indigenous mentees involved in the program in Australia. We’ve designed a set of scalable original educational products like Failure Time, The Game of Life, AIME TV, and the Theatre of Education. We’ve strutted the streets, hustled our way into the USA on a shoestring budget, sat in the home of Nelson Mandela, walked through the hills of Uganda, imagined the first Indigenous Prime Minister, led the largest volunteer movement of university students in Australian history, helped change the day of the Hottest 100 with Triple j, invented the most meaningful hoodie in the world, and made a short film with Oscar Winner Laurent Witz & M&C Saatchi that won the world’s top advertising award for good (The Webby for Good). We’ve done it all with the power of imagination. And it’s only the beginning. Now we dream. And we dream big. Today we are opening up the next chapter with the recruitment of a DREAM FACTORY General Manager who can help lead our in-house agency, by creatively solving the challenges AIME is working on, and just as importantly to connect and work with organisations across the earth, so that we can be the imaginative group that solves a global challenge for the young and disadvantaged. By 2023 we want to have provided a meaningful impact through our ideas and products that have impacted the lives of 50 Million youth worldwide, and we want to be closer than ever before to ending educational inequality in Australia by delivering on our promise: These kids aren’t the problem to be fixed, they are the solution. We are looking for a GM to run the agency internally, and to build our relationships with external partners.
