Chief Executive Officer

Make a difference through a highly regarded Not for Profit organisation with this exciting opportunity for a dynamic and experienced executive to lead the Peter Cullen Trust.

The mission of the Peter Cullen Trust is Bridging Science, People and the Environment, reflecting our philosophy that respectful, informed and meaningful collaboration is the key to responsible and sustainable water management.

In just ten years, the Peter Cullen Trust has established an enviable reputation in developing leaders and stimulating conversations and debate around water issues. It has developed a strong business model that has been a platform for financial self-sustainability and growth. In the current dynamic environment, this provides an outstanding base for further development and growth.

The Trust’s Board is seeking a highly motivated, collaborative and entrepreneurial CEO who is a strategic thinker and can lead the organisation for a sustainable future and through its next stage of development.

This position will appeal to someone who is an excellent communicator, with the drive and passion to take the Peter Cullen Trust to the next level: to develop leaders and support leadership in the Australian water and environment sector. As a talented and engaging leader, you will credibly and professionally influence stakeholders.

This is a part time role (indicative time commitment is 0.6 FTE). The Peter Cullen Trust is based in Canberra, but there is some flexibility in the location of the role for the right candidate.

An attractive remuneration package will be negotiated with the right candidate.

To apply please forward your CV, covering letter and information to address the selection criteria as outlined in the candidate information pack available at by Sunday 27 September 2020.
