Chief Executive Officer – The Y Ballarat – make an impact for good

We have a very appealing opportunity for a visionary CEO with excellent credentials and integrity, to lead a growing organisation through a period of consolidation following significant growth. 

Based in the heart of the Victorian Goldfields, Ballarat offers a fabulous lifestyle for the whole family. This fast growing, heritage rich city is famous for its stunning architecture, natural beauty, excellent schooling and healthcare and proximity to Melbourne.

This is your moment to make an impact for good.

The Opportunity

Being passionate about empowering young people is at the core of this role.  Everyone associated with The Y from Board members to staff is committed to the organisation’s belief in the power of inspired young people.

Recent years have seen The Y Ballarat consolidate its focus on Early Years management and Youth programs, moving away from community recreational venues. The shift in focus to managing kindergartens, long day care and outside school hours care services has secured The Y Ballarat’s sustainability and growth in the mid and post-pandemic environment.

Key responsibilities for the incoming executive include applying their detailed knowledge of contemporary Early Years Management and its complexities to establish a vision and a united strategy for consolidation and further growth, in a context of transparency, inclusiveness and strong governance.

Building partnerships and a pro-active approach by identifying business opportunities which continue to build the organisation in a financially sound way, will be of strong prominence for this role.

You are a strong and inclusive people leader who inspires confidence and dedication from others, creating a culture of performance and engagement.

You will be the voice and an advocate for the rights of children and young people.
