About the Company
The Moreton Bay Foundation – focusing expertise, wisdom and enthusiasm for the benefit of Moreton Bay.
Moreton Bay is a unique jewel of biodiversity, cultural heritage, and aesthetic beauty.  It is vital that this delicate ecosystem be preserved for current and future generations. 
Our vision is for Moreton Bay to be an international treasure, known for its environmental health, biological diversity, ecological sustainability, its innovative robust and resilient economy and its Indigenous culture and heritage.

About the Role
We are seeking our inaugural CEO, to build the reputation of the Moreton Bay Foundation, to develop and foster strategic networks and create the systems, structures and plans to deliver long-term success in line with our strategic plan.
This is an outstanding opportunity to build the organisation and create a long-term legacy.   Reporting to the Board, the CEO will provide leadership, influence policy and develop a strong collaborative network of partners and stakeholders whilst identifying funding and investment opportunities to facilitate growth and resource new initiatives.
About You
Our new CEO will be passionate, visionary and determined to deliver outcomes.
We are seeking a self-motivated, dynamic leader who thrives on working with others and who is committed to partnering with industry, government and the community to deliver demonstrable outcomes.
You will be results-oriented, a natural influencer and driven to succeed.  You will have proven stakeholder engagement expertise and a track-record of success in attracting funding and investment to the organisations for which you have worked.  You will have demonstrated experience in start-up organisations, or significant project management expertise. 
You will also have a talent for ingenuity and optimizing available resources.
Knowledge of Moreton Bay is not essential, however a willingness to become immersed in the science and culture of Moreton Bay and become an advocate for the Bay is required.

The Benefits
You will enjoy a flexible working environment, competitive salary, the ability to develop and guide strategy and the opportunity to lead an organisation from its commencement.  With a supportive Board, you will have the chance to showcase your talent and expertise.
