Chief Executive Officer

The Australian Refugee Association (ARA) is the longest serving non-government organisation assisting the settlement of refugees in South Australia. Established in 1975, the organisation has developed a national and international reputation for its work as it adapts to meet the varied challenges created by each new global refugee crisis. Based in Salisbury and with outreach services in the western and southern suburbs of Adelaide, ARA’s 65 committed staff and more than 200 volunteers provide holistic settlement, migration, advocacy, and support services to empower newly arrived communities and individuals in all aspects of life in Australia.

Retirement of the current Chief Executive Officer in September 2024 provides an opportunity for an experienced human services executive to lead ARA through its next impactful phase. The future CEO will be a pragmatic strategic thinker with exceptional planning skills who leads by example with the highest degree of ethics and diplomacy. Commercially astute and with highly developed written and verbal communication skills, the appointee will offer authenticity, warmth, empathy and compassion to the ARA mission. With an unwavering commitment to the principles of equity, inclusiveness, collaboration, and client centred service delivery, you will be an experienced people leader energised by working within a multicultural service environment and a preparedness to work at ground level as needed.
