The organisation is led by a highly engaged and passionate leadership group, and staff, with a strong commitment to the viable future of the organisation and those it serves/represents.

  • A background in making major contribution in unison with the General Manager of the Archdiocese. This will include well-honed relationship management skills in order to connect with, and advise, a broad array of stakeholder groups.
  • Experience in overseeing property related projects would be advantageous as there is a significant property development at the Catholic Centre, the epispiritual centre of the Archdiocese and the Church’s regional management and administration functions.
  • CA or equivalent qualification is required.  
  • Experience in the NFP/NGO sector and/or evidence of alignment with operating in a values driven entity would beeb advantageous.
