Take the leadership role of one of this country’s most relevant and progressive NFP peak bodies, providing vital information, advice, support, networks, professional development and advocacy for its thousands of members. Family businesses, which constitute a significant sector of the economy, underpin much of the nation’s employment, community and way of life.

You will maintain and develop quality resources and services for members, be the official spokesperson for FBA, and build regular liaison with government and other regulatory bodies.

Most importantly, you must be a skilled communicator and networker who can develop mutually beneficial relationships with a diverse stakeholder base.

Reporting to a capable, skills-based Board that will look to you for strategic advice, you will provide
leadership to a professional and well-regarded management team. You will drive the strategic
plan, manage key relationships with diverse stakeholders, ensure sound clinical standards and
business practices, and deliver quality care for residents.
For this key position you should be a proven CEO who can demonstrate success as an inspiring
leader. Knowledge of the sector is preferable to be able to manage the opportunities and
challenges facing aged care and you will need sound commercial management abilities.
