  • Empower communities through training & education
  • Innovate and enhance the volunteering experience

RSPCA NSW has been the voice for the animals of the state for over 145 years. It is a non-government organisation with a clear vision and hope for the future, employing over 400 people, engaging 1,500 volunteers and amazing supporters who last year helped raise nearly $40 million to provide animal welfare services and programs in NSW.

RSPCA NSW is constantly looking to identify areas where it can adapt their services to animals and the community and has recently restructured the organisation and executive team to achieve its vision. The new leadership team structure is designed to deliver a strategic plan through highly visible leadership and enabling a culture where empowerment, collaboration, innovation and welfare for people and animals thrive.

The General Manager of Community is a unique role that leads a large, diverse state-wide team and network of resources serving animals and their people and communities. This includes a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), community programs supporting animals and people, an education branch engaging with schools, government and community groups, and 24 volunteer branches engaging the support of over 1,500 committed volunteers.

In the context of RSPCA NSW’s strategic transformation, your key focus areas include growing the RTO’s commercial education and training programs, developing programs that enhance animal and human welfare outcomes, and implementing strategies to empower and enhance the volunteering experience.

We are seeking an outstanding leader with extensive experience in training services. You will have proven your ability to strategically grow services and develop programs, lead innovation and drive collaboration with stakeholders. Expressions of interest are encouraged from leaders with backgrounds in a range sectors across the public, private or not for profit markets.

This is an exciting and compelling career opportunity. You’ll be a part of a new leadership team on a mission to innovate and develop an organisation and culture that will change the face of animal welfare.
