The incoming CEO will represent and support more than 32,000 members and lead the organisation as an active and respected voice on national health policy.
Reporting to the Board, and supported by an executive team, the CEO will support the design and implementation of the strategic plan to advance the organisation’s vision, belief and purpose, building on its excellent reputation and position at the forefront of the profession. The CEO will oversee high quality membership offerings, financial stewardship, sustained growth and effective resource management. Importantly the CEO will facilitate enhanced community recognition of physiotherapy through oversight of national advocacy and consumer-focused campaigns, as well as progressive, contemporary and cost-effective professional development for its members.
You will offer a dynamic and strategic leadership presence to take the organisation to the next exciting stage of growth. As the national representative for the organisation, you will be an exceptional communicator, skilled in management of stakeholder alliances and be comfortable engaging at the most senior levels. Ideally you will bring CEO or senior executive experience in member services or related sector and present with a strong affinity with the Physiotherapy profession and for improving health outcomes for all. A track record leading and developing a high performing team coupled with commercial acumen that provides the highest level of corporate governance and sound and innovative advice to the Board is desired. Appropriate tertiary qualifications are required.

We're experiencing change at an unprecedented pace, as seen with technologies like ChatGPT gaining 100 million users in just 2 months, far quicker than platforms like YouTube, Facebook, or Netflix in their early days. With shifts in commerce, climate, and public discourse, how do association leaders and futurists respond effectively? Maxime Lagace says wisdom is key. Paul Tero introduces the “DIKW Wisdom Hierarchy,” emphasising the transformation of raw data into wisdom through description and understanding processes. Harness this model to guide your organisation and adapt to our ever-evolving world.

Ensuring a seamless transition without compromising on the essential functions of the organisation is crucial. The recent case of Suzie Cheikho v Insurance Australia Group Services Limited presented at the Fair Work Commission provides invaluable insights into navigating this complex terrain.
