Permanent Care and Adoptive Families (PCA Families) is a Melbourne based organisation and is a unique provider of community services with a strong focus on information advocacy and support for permanent carers and adoptive families.  Providing support to parents who in turn provide a caring and stable home for children and young people who are unable to live with their birth parents, is at the heart of everything we do. Collaborating with other community organisations, government bodies and philanthropists, PCA Families’ campaigns and projects have contributed to reforms and services that recognise the importance of an independent voice and support for the sector.

Reporting to, and working closely with the board, the CEO will develop and implement strategies to ensure that programs and projects are delivered in line with the current organisational strategic plan. The CEO will play a key role in diversifying partnerships, developing philanthropic relationships and will work closely with government bodies in regards to current and future funding opportunities. Leading a small, dedicated team and ensuring cultural vitality and an integrated organisational approach, influencing policy development and advocating for the benefit of clients will be key to the success of this role.

This is a great opportunity for a collaborative leader who is looking for a first time CEO opportunity or an experienced leader who wants to make a difference and have impact in the sector. With strong communication skills, strategic leadership approach, governance and board reporting experience, the CEO will also work with the board to develop the next three year strategic plan whilst providing operational support. A background in a relevant area such as community services, education or government will be highly regarded.
