Chief Executive Officer
CatholicCare, Melbourne
  • Strategic leadership role
  • Identify and leverage service delivery opportunities
  • Build organisational capability

The Position

With the departure of the eminent and highly regarded CEO, an opportunity arises for a visionary and contemporary leader, with excellent interpersonal skills and a collaborative management style with the demonstrable capability to lead service delivery and assess markets and opportunities, and prepare the organisation to adapt and respond to change. With alignment to the values and culture of the organisation, the successful candidate will have an understanding of working in a faith-based organisation and the social services sector with experience at a senior level in the effective leadership and management of a diverse portfolio.

CatholicCare is known for its partnerships; the new CEO will therefore be strategic, innovative and a strong collaborator. Superior relationship and stakeholder management skills will enable engagement in important conversations driving the Church’s social services work at community level. Working with a small, yet skilled Executive Team, capability in policy and advocacy is sought, especially with State and Federal government, influencing, advocating and representing CatholicCare’s position as a respected player in the social services marketplace. Commercial nous, strong resource and change management skills will be essential to success. A personality embracing the uniqueness of individuals sets the successful candidate apart from others. A relevant tertiary qualification is required.

The Organisation

CatholicCare is the social service agency of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne and the Diocese of Sale, that provides family and relationship services, relationship courses, pastoral services, refugee and asylum seeker support, and education support to the whole community, regardless of religious belief or background.
