Workskil Australia is a national not-for-profit organisation, providing a multitude of programs across employment, youth, community and Indigenous services. Workskil Australia has over 35 proud years of supporting Australians to achieve sustained economic and social self-reliance and currently has a talented team of over 750 staff working across 70 locations in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia.
Reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, this newly created Adelaide based role is intended to provide oversight to the operations of the organisation as a whole, working closely with the Executive Team to ensure high quality delivery of operational services across all of Workskil Australia’s programs.
The responsibilities of this role will also extend to:
- managing the delivery of all operational services;
- providing coaching and mentoring to direct reports supporting a high performance culture;
- contributing to overall organisational strategy as part of the Executive Leadership Team;
- overseeing business development initiatives in accordance with Workskil Australia’s strategic plan; and
- implementing and managing national supply arrangements for key operational services.
This role will suit executives who thrive in a complex fast paced business that is constantly evolving.

The successful candidate will be willing to engage with the locations, the role and the services provided, leading from the front with exceptional people management skills and strong commitment to Workskil Australia’s vision, mission and values. High level commercial acumen, complemented by strong leadership, communication, negotiation and stakeholder management skills will all be important qualities in the successful candidate.
