Job Description

  • Lead Social Inclusion & Community Impact
  • 'Include the Un-included'
  • Engage Our Vulnerable through Sport, Recreation & Art

Reclink Australia (RA) is a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to enhance the lives of people experiencing disadvantage or facing significant barriers to participation. RA provides evidence-based sport and art programs to disadvantaged Australians to create socially inclusive, life-changing opportunities. Celebrating its 30th year, RA is a national operation employing 50 staff and working in partnership with over 450 community organisations. Predominantly funded by government, the organisation focuses on the community's most vulnerable and isolated people, encouraging them to take steps towards health and self-esteem on a daily basis. RA also conducts several major public events including the Reclink Community Cups held in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Canberra and Brisbane.

Reporting to and working closely with a committed Board, the CEO will lead the development and ultimate implementation of the new Strategic Plan. You will lead a high-performing and highly-engaged national team, inspiring them to live the values of the organisation and contribute to the incredible impact Reclink Australia has on thousands of Australians each year. Leveraging your networks and stakeholder engagement capability, you will further develop the sponsorship/partnership and fundraising/gifting programs to ensure a commercially sustainable future for RA.

You are a highly-regarded leader of people, who is strategic, authentic and impactful. You have a strong history of building team cultures that you are proud of, and bring a track record of success in executive roles in an aligned sector (including sport and recreation, creative industries, community services and not-for-profit, to name a few). Well-known for your exceptional stakeholder management and relationship skills, you are confident as a spokesperson and have experience in advocacy both at government and non-government levels. Understanding the importance of governance, you have experience working with a highly-skilled Board and bring energy and ambition to deliver on a new strategic plan. Finally, you have a strong not-for-profit service mindset, but also a keen understanding of the importance of commercial acumen and being able to achieve a diversified funding model.
