South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC)

Established in 1977, the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC) is a not-for-profit company which manages the majority of admissions for university and TAFE courses in SA and NT, along with the provision of associated services.

With 5 members comprising 4 universities and TAFE SA and several fee for service clients, SATAC is an established and respected organisation with revenue approaching $10m, 65 dedicated staff and an appetite for growth.  After many years of successfully chairing the entity, the current incumbent Alexandrea Cannon is relinquishing the role later in 2022.

SATAC now seeks an experienced Director to join the Board as its new Chair and add strategic value to the entity.  In addition, suitable candidates will be considered for future directorships.  Applications are encouraged from suitably qualified individuals who have ideally graduated from the AICD Company Directors Course.

A background in governance, business growth, enterprise technology, finance, and/or education will be highly regarded but expressions of interest are also welcome from accomplished professionals who believe they have diverse and relevant experience and skills that might benefit the organisation.  

Experience as a Chair, commercial and technological acumen, strategic thinking prowess and a capacity to identify risks, constructively challenge the status quo and find business value will be highly regarded.

This is a remunerated governance role providing the opportunity to collaborate with the member-nominated and independent Board Members to help position SATAC for further success at a pivotal time for the vital industry it serves.  The entity may explore applicants for both current and future opportunities at the Board table and also for both the Chair and potential complementary Independent Director seats.
