An exciting opportunity exists for the right person to join the team of the Upper Yarra Community Enterprise as the part time Executive Officer, approx. 24 hours per week. 

Upper Yarra Community Enterprise Ltd (UYCE) is an unlisted public company which was formed in October 1999 to establish the Warburton Community Bank® Branch under a franchise agreement with Bendigo Bank. In 2008 a second branch in Yarra Junction was opened.

Since 2000, the Company has expanded through the creation of Warburton Waterwheel Ltd, which operates the local Visitor Information Centre, and through the recent formation of Upper Yarra Community Power Pty Ltd, who operate a 100kw hydro electricity generator that has been  funded through a State Government grant, a loan guaranteed by UYCE and equity from UYCE.

We are looking for a committed, enthusiastic and energetic person with strong communication and leadership skills to guide the organisation into the future. The person will also require a strong community focus with existing links within the Valley.
