About the organisation

Organisation Name : The YMCA (‘the Y’)

The YMCA (‘the Y’) is the largest youth movement in the world, reaching 65 million people in over 120 countries, in every continent. In Australia, our 13 member associations span 650 communities Australia wide, through the dedication of our 12,000+ staff and volunteers.

Across our federated setting, the Y provides a broad range of services that support children and young people across the course of their lives – from childcare, outside school care and youth development programs, to disability services, access to schools and community recreation services.

Collectively we combine our extensive geographic reach and broad range of programs, with our deep connection to our local communities; all drawn together through our strong DNA – our unwavering commitment to stand with and for young people; our passion for partnering with our communities to solve community problems; and our determination to ensure a respectful, inclusive, flexible and intergenerational workplace.

We are a small team at Y Australia, but we have important work to do, in enabling and amplifying the power of our collective; building our collective capability; and leading strategy, public policy, engagement and advocacy functions in support of our movement.

About the role

Working in partnership with the new CEO, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) will help reshape the Y National office to support, connect, coordinate and enable our 13 member associations in driving meaningful change, in line with our Y Australia Strategy 2030 (a first of its kind strategy, currently under development, which will enable us to align our local, national and global impact).
The COO will have primary management responsibility for organizational infrastructure, communications, HR functions, finances, risk, compliance, and the policies and systems that underpin Y Australia’s culture, programs and impact.
To be successful in this role you will be a strong people leader with a strategic and commercial mindset, accomplished in leading and inspiring people in delivering operational transformation.
You can see the big picture, while also being able to take a hands-on approach in translating vision and big-picture thinking into practical steps and aligned action. You have high-performance standards and the capacity to support others to perform at this level, together with a positive, solutions and impact-orientated attitude.
