Director Good Things Foundation Australia

 

Join a fast-paced and effective social change organisation as we embark on an ambitious new phase.

Good Things Foundation works with Governments, community organisations and other partners across the world to enable and empower local people to thrive in a digital world. That might mean getting a job after a period of unemployment, managing health, collaborating with children or grandchildren in homework activities, or feeling less lonely and connecting with family far away. People around the world are isolated and excluded because their society relies on people being confident at using the internet.

We are just starting out in Australia, so this is a unique opportunity to help us to establish our Australian organisation on the back of being awarded two three-year contracts with the Federal Government.

You will lead the establishment of Good Things Foundation in Australia, and ensure we are dynamic, successful and sustainable. You will set the strategic direction for our Australian operation, working closely with the Group Chief Executive.

You need to be tenacious at driving ambitious targets for changing the lives of millions of people, both in Australia and internationally. With experience in leadership and managing a range of cross sector stakeholders, you will have skills in building an excellent reputation as well as creating new income.

You need to be a role model for our culture and values, including driving innovation and curiosity. Your attitude and commitment should inspire and motivate staff.

Please apply as soon as you’re inspired to do so.
