EBL Disability Services was established in 1981 to support individuals with an intellectual disability and their families to live meaningful lives. This not-for-profit organisation has grown steadily through an unwavering commitment to high quality and diverse support services including short stays, accommodation, assisted holidays, learning and lifestyle programs.
EBL is funded predominantly by the state and federal governments, along with fundraising activities and generous donations by the Foundation. It is governed by a dedicated and skills based Board and managed by a long serving and highly successful Chief Executive who leads a team of over 150 staff.
Due to the upcoming resignation of the current Chair, Mark Pitcher after a number of years of valuable service and support, a unique opportunity has emerged for a new Chair to work closely with the Board, Chief Executive and leadership team to drive strategic formulation and implementation for this most worthy entity.
Expressions of interest are invited from suitably qualified and experienced individuals with the capacity, advocacy, energy, vision, profile, commercial acumen and passion required to Chair such an important business. An authentic affinity with the EBL vision, mission and values will naturally be critical. Knowledge of and experience in regard to the NDIS will also be highly regarded but is not essential as the business has been recently rated as one of the most NDIS ready entities in its sector. Strong governance, commercial, business development and strategic planning skills will be important, as will be the ability to develop and enhance effective and productive relationships with a wide range of public and private partners.
This is a rare opportunity to help forge strategy and make a significant strategic contribution to a respected organisation making a genuine difference in the lives of its stakeholders.
