New Position – NSW Business Development Manager

AUAV is seeking a suitable candidate to fill the new position of NSW Business Development Manager, reporting to our NSW Regional Manager.

The successful candidate will be responsible for identifying  and securing new leads across the industries AUAV has successfully developed over 7 years of operation. 

The position is for an initial three month fixed term, with ongoing employment opportunities upon successfully meeting KPIs from the initial contract. 

The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in developing business in survey, asset management or drone data related businesses. 

Essential criteria:

  • Previous experience in business development, marketing, communication and market analysis
  • Working knowledge of consulting businesses and service delivery
  • Proposal writing skills, client communication and project pricing
  • Extensive connections throughout Sydney and NSW in our core client sectors (utilities, land development, survey, asset management or engineering)

Additional Desirable Criteria:

  • Experience in the drone industry
  • Social media and online marketing
  • Understanding of drone derived data 

In addition to the core role, there will also be opportunities to contribute to the field work, data processing and other aspects of the business if that suits the interests and skills of the candidate.

To apply for this position please email addressing the above criteria together with your CV. 


Aside from any positions listed above, we are always on the lookout for talented and enthusiastic people to help grow the business, so if that sounds like you please get in touch. We are particularly interested in professionals from our client industries who are seeking a change of career and can see the benefits of this amazing technology.

For our longer term growth we are seeking expressions of interest to launch offices into new regions of the country. Eligible candidates for this role would be self-sufficient with some sales and marketing knowledge, have a good network of contacts in our client industries and of course also some experience with drone operations.

If you are not quite at the level of applying for a job but are interested in taking your first steps toward becoming a commercial drone operator, you can find details on gaining a Remote Pilot License and Remote Operators Certificate on the CASA website.

We receive a large number of applications from multi-rotor operators, but unfortunately unless you are making a career change from one of our client industries, it is unlikely we would have work for you in this context unless you are bringing work from your current job or network. The sort of technical experience we are looking for is usually in fixed-wing UAV operation, building your own UAV systems, or niche software/hardware technical skills which would be of use to our clients (e.g. image analysis, specialist sensors, GIS, etc).
