  • Lead and grow a healthy and evolving State Sporting Organisation
  • 'Hands on' management role
  • Grow membership, participation and funding
  • Implement strategic and operational plans

The primary role of Triathlon NSW is to facilitate activities and events which encourage the participation in the sport of triathlon.

The Executive Director will lead and represent the sport of triathlon in NSW to grow membership, participation and funding. The role will also manage the implementation of the national strategic plan in NSW through delivery of the Triathlon NSW operational plan.

Reporting to the Board of Triathlon NSW and working closely with Triathlon Australia and the STTAs, the Executive Director position is influential in the development of the sport at a national level as a member of the National Leadership Team composed of the Executive Directors of the eight STTAs and key national staff.

The Executive Director has overall responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the business, providing direction and leadership to the staff of four.

This ‘hands-on’ role requires an energetic and innovative leader with strong communication skills who is able to engage and work collaboratively with a diverse stakeholder group and develop and nurture key relationships within the triathlon community, including volunteers.

The successful candidate will have a strong track record in strategic leadership, with the ability to drive change and navigate the complexities of the sporting landscape. The person must be decisive and tenacious with a demonstrated commitment to delivering both growth and a member service support focus which is built on quality, respect and effectiveness.

As Triathlon NSW shares office space with Triathlon Australia, this is a rare opportunity to be exposed to National initiatives while focussed on programs at State level.

This is a unique opportunity to lead and grow a healthy and evolving State Sporting Organisation. You might already be an experienced Executive Director or are a senior manager ready for the next step into this ‘hands on’ leadership role.

Experience within the sport environment (not necessarily triathlon) and/or membership organisations will be an advantage. You must be committed to providing strong foundations for the growth of the sport in New South Wales.
