About the role

CEO Designate – Australian Shareholders’ Association ASA

Location: Sydney CBD

Reporting Structure: Initially reporting to the current CEO and ultimately to the ASA Board

Reports: The ASA office currently has 7 staff members

About the Role

The current CEO has signaled his intention to step down at the end of 2021.  The successful applicant will work with the current CEO during a transition period to ensure they gain a detailed understanding of the Association prior to moving into the CEO position.

The primary objectives of the CEO position are:

  • To develop & manage the Association’s human resources, including volunteers, as a key element of the effective delivery of the Association’s Strategic Plan;
  • Control income & expenditure such that the Association remains financially healthy.

During the transition phase it is anticipated that the successful applicant will take a “hands on role” in order to understand the detail of the operation and begin the implementation of changes they would propose, while the current CEO focuses on the marketing and education agenda. After the transition roles would change with the designate leading the strategic developments/changes and becoming established as the face of ASA.
