About Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound is a ground-breaking, global leadership initiative set against the backdrop of Antarctica, which aims to heighten the influence and impact of women in making decisions that shape our planet.

Since its inception, Homeward Bound has exploded, affecting the lives of thousands of women and reaching the awareness of hundreds of millions of people worldwide. It has attracted sponsorship from some of Australia’s most iconic brands and is featured in media and news outlets including The NY Times, Forbes, BBC, ABC, Channel 10 and much, much more.

Now an opportunity has become available to work with a newly appointed CEO, helping to ensure operational activities are delivered well, relevant stakeholders are kept informed, and the programme delivery team is supported.

In this role, you can expect to:

  • Provide Executive Assistant support to the CEO

  • Management of project management platforms, methods and processes, and internal capabilities to ensure high quality program delivery.
  • Ensure all corporate reporting requirements (including, but not limited to, ACNC, ATO, Workcover, superannuation) are met fully and on time.
  • In conjunction with the CEO, manage annual organisational budgets and project budgets, including tracking expenditure against budget.
  • Manage an external bookkeeper

To be suitable for this role, you would need some, but not all, of the following:

  • Solid business skills, including financial reporting and governance
  • Experience in managing projects and teams come up with a demonstrated ability to plan and prioritise
  • Demonstrated ability to collate and synthesise data for reporting
  • Understanding of and commitment to improving the challenges facing women in leadership
  • Experience working in a not for profit or social enterprise environment is a plus


  • 4-month contract with the high possibility of extension
  • Salary: $80,000 pa pr, fulltime (negotiable) + superannuation (10%)
  • Potential for the role to be four days per week, rather than full time if desired
