Chief Operating Officer - Australian Diabetes Educators Association

Employment Office
  • Are you an operations leader ready to step up into senior management or grow within this overarching, strategic position?
  • Newly created role within a national peak body that's passionate about innovation & committed to creative, future-focused thinking!
  • Attractive remuneration in line with the seniority of the role, plus super and benefits!

About ADEA

The Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) is the national peak body representing health care professionals who specialise in diabetes education, management and care, and also the regulatory body for Credentialed Diabetes Educators (CDEs) Australia-wide. They have a small team of permanent staff and rely on the ongoing support of volunteers to continue transforming lives through quality diabetes education and care.

Committed to professionalism and personalised support, they are strong advocates for best practice, person-centred diabetes education and care, supporting and advocating for those affected by diabetes, their carers, and their families. They are an organisation with a genuine focus on innovation and creative ideas, always encouraging their staff to look towards the future and welcoming new suggestions or opportunities to improve.

About the Opportunity

ADEA now has an important newly-created opportunity for a Chief Operating Officer to join their senior management team on a full-time basis, working from their office in Canberra, with room to negotiate some flexible work arrangements.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, you will oversee the ADEA operations, including governance, finance, risk management, contract and project management, human resources, ICT and security.

Your scope of responsibilities will encompass, but will not be confined to:

  • Providing advice to the CEO on the planning, management and reporting of ADEA's operations;
  • Ensuring ADEA complies with all company secretarial and regulatory matters;
  • Overseeing telecommunications and digital infrastructure;
  • Ensuring that ADEA is a high-performing organisation through the management of office policies, systems and processes for governance, finance, risk management, HR etc.;
  • Developing revenue-generating commercial and business operations;
  • Ensuring appropriate structures and policies are enacted to support a safe and inclusive work environment; and
  • Overseeing the quality management system to maintain ADEA's ISO certification.

About You

To be considered for this position you will have an extensive background in operations management, with a strong financial understanding and relevant tertiary qualifications (business, accounting, HR etc.).

As a small organisation, this role has more hands-on responsibilities than typical executive-level positions and would either suit someone with significant middle management experience wanting to take the next step in their career, or a current senior manager looking to broaden their skillset.

With oversight of business operations, you will need to have a well-rounded understanding of human resources and risk management, particularly as it relates to the QMS framework and the maintenance of industry accreditation standards.

Working across all facets of the organisation, you will possess strong strategic oversight and experience managing the governance, finance, ICT, HR/risk and office administration aspects of a dynamic business.

You will also demonstrate inclusive leadership qualities and be comfortable engaging staff and stakeholders at all levels, influencing decisions and establishing productive working relationships throughout the process.

Moreover, your ability to mentor and support internal staff and managers will be crucial to not only your success, but the success of the organisation moving forward.

While not essential, understanding of the Diabetes or NFP sectors will be seen as highly desirable.

About the Benefits

This is a rare opportunity to join a passionate and supportive organisation in an exciting period of change.

Stepping into this senior management position, you'll be able to truly make the role your own as you assume strategic oversight and grow with the organisation.

With ADEA open to negotiating flexible working arrangements suited to your lifestyle and commitments, the association is dedicated to ensuring a positive work culture and provides additional paid leave over the Christmas and New Year period.

ADEA is offering the successful candidate an attractive salary in line with the seniority of the role plus super and PBI salary sacrificing options.

You will also have access to ongoing training and professional development, with mentoring opportunities and support to grow your skills in areas that interest you, and negotiable relocation assistance for candidates moving interstate.
