Lead one of Australia’s most highly regarded professional bodies and play a key role in the future of dental professions. Responsible for accreditation of dental educational programs in Australia, the Australian Dental Council also assesses internationally qualified dentists, dental hygienists, dental therapists, oral health therapists and prosthetists.

Managing the ADC office in the Melbourne CBD, your responsibilities include business planning, budgeting &

In addition to understanding the national dental or health environment, applicants must have experience in corporate governance, business management, and the ability to represent the ADC at a national level. Management qualifications are desirable, and experience at CEO level will be highly regarded.

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.

leader. Knowledge of the sector is preferable to be able to manage the opportunities and
