SEEK: Chief Executive Officer – Golf Management Australia

POSTED ON July 29, 2019 @ 10:24 am

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

  • Support senior golf club managers across Australia
  • Strategic leadership and governance role
  • Drive member engagement and growth
  • Work from home (Melbourne or Sydney preferred)

Golf Management Australia (GMA) represents Golf Club Managers throughout Australia and, through state GMA associations, aims to provide professional development, support, education, networking and health/wellbeing initiatives to over 400 members across Australia.

GMA objectives are based upon:

  • Providing professional and personal development opportunities to all members
  • Supporting members health and wellbeing
  • Providing tools and resources to assist members in the management of golf clubs
  • Actively advocating for the betterment of golf club management within the wider industry.

GMA and the 5 state GMA associations are currently working under a service agreement, whereby each state has outsourced all operational activities to GMA to deliver on their behalf.  These service agreements require GMA to deliver on member benefit obligations, while also managing nationally based corporate partnerships.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will lead and manage all elements of the organisation nationwide, overseeing a part time State Operations Manager in each state who will facilitate GMA member events and programs.

While the role reports directly to the GMA Board, through the Chair, regular reporting to state GMA association executives will be required regarding the current service agreement obligations and the membership experience.

The CEO will drive a national approach to GMA related activities, with a focus on membership engagement and growth through the promotion and delivery of member networking, professional development, education and health/wellbeing events and programs, in particular the 5-day biennial GMA National Conference which includes 300 delegates, 25-30 corporate partners, a world class program and networking events.

The management of highly valued corporate partners is also a critical component of the role, with the GMA corporate partners program underpinning the majority of GMA related activities and ensuring the financial security of the organisation.

To be considered for this role you will be tertiary qualified with significant management experience either within an association/club or membership-based organisation, or with a focus on the professional or personal development of employees/members. You will have demonstrated skills in event and program management, in particular delivering high-quality education or professional development programs.

You will be a dynamic and proactive leader with the ability to set a clear direction and manage staff remotely. Your commercial and financial acumen will successfully deliver against strategic objectives whilst building strong networks and relationships across a diverse range of stakeholders, including corporate partners.

A background in golf or sport management is not essential; however, you must be committed to supporting the development of golf club managers and administrators throughout Australia.
