The Judiciary is one of the three arms of Government in South Australia. The Courts Administration Authority (CAA) is independent of control by the Executive arm of Government and provides a range of court-based services for the South Australian community, emphasising excellence in court management and the efficient and sensitive use of resources whilst aiming to engender respect, confidence and trust from the community. With a staff of around 800 and a budget of approximately $140m, the CAA is one of the few court authorities in Australasia with a Council/Board, which comprises the Chief Justice, the Chief Judge of the District Court and the Chief Magistrate.
The appointee to this significant leadership role will be responsible to the Council for the management of the business and administrative affairs of the State’s court system, providing high level frank and fearless advice to the Council, passionately supporting the judiciary and effectively leading the organisation through the cultural change and continuous improvement processes required to realise the full benefits of current and future strategic investment in the courts and their infrastructure.
Applications are encouraged from suitably qualified professionals of high personal and professional integrity able to lead and inspire the CAA. The successful candidate will have experience leading a diverse and complex community service organisation, be highly proficient in the management of human resources and display exceptional change management, financial management, negotiation, relationship building and influencing skills. An understanding of the operations of the courts within the broader justice system will be an advantage.
This challenging and rewarding role represents an outstanding opportunity to help shape the critical infrastructure that directly supports the delivery of justice in South Australia.
