Chief Executive Officer

We are partnering with the Board to appoint a high performing, commercially-minded CEO to the helm of this regional, community-enriching organisation.

The Opportunity

To ensure NUsport can continue their mission of creating positive living experiences, encompassing a healthier mind, fitter body and happier spirit for all, we are currently seeking to appoint a Chief Executive Officer with a passion for making a meaningful impact.

The organisation is ready to be taken to its next stage of maturity and the purpose of the role of Chief Executive Officer is to lead and guide the team, the community and the organisation's stakeholders, ensuring it can continue to build on its successes in the achievement of the Strategic Plan.

This opportunity would be offered on a five year fixed term basis.

The Organisation

NUsport believes in the significant enhancement to the student experience through the involvement in sport, health and recreation.

As a community-leading organisation, NUsport is the cornerstone to provision of health, sport and leisure services and facilities to students, staff and alumni of the University of Newcastle. Having been an active part of the University and its wider community for more than 50 years, it is through these services and facilities that NUsport enhances the total student experience positively.

With approximately 160 employees and a remarkable diversity of offerings, NUsport promotes and enables enjoyment of a range of quality health, sporting and recreational facilities, services and programs, and contributes genuinely to the development of its members socially, physically and intellectually through opportunities for participation in health, education and leisure activities.


As a passionate people leader who has held similar executive level responsibilities previously, you will thrive in an environment that offers the opportunity to take an already successful organisation from great to even greater.

You will personify the organisation's values and make it look easy to swing and sway seamlessly from strategic visionary to pragmatic operationalist. In sharing with us a leadership career highlighted by the development of influential relationships with employees, community, government and industry and key stakeholders, we will feel inspired and energised.

As a champion of healthy living and achieving your personal best in sport, recreation and fitness, you will provide insight into how you have driven change and growth through an understanding of all key functions of a commercially-clever organisation - people, finance, governance and strategy.

Motivated by the opportunity to invest in the organisation for the long term, you will display the highest degree of professionalism in all aspects of your work, an unwavering commitment to the achievement of positive, meaningful impact, and a genuine commitment to playing your part as a vibrant leader in the journey that the team is embarking on.
