Chief Executive Officer: ReachOut Australia

Lead an innovative e-mental health organisation supporting young people

  • Use your strategic mindset to drive scale and innovation
  • Build on a solid foundation and reputation for excellence
  • Inspire and guide a passionate and capable team

ReachOut is Australia’s leading online mental health organisation for young people and their parents. Their practical support, tools and tips help young people get through anything from everyday issues to tough times, and the information they offer parents makes it easier for them to help their teenagers too.

ReachOut has been changing the way people access help since launching as the world’s first online mental health service nearly 20 years ago. Its foundation was built around innovation and this continues to be core to its essence today. ReachOut has an ambitious strategy to increase its reach to one million additional people and is looking for a leader to drive forward the next stage of its evolution.

The organisation is in a strong position financially and operationally. This is an outstanding opportunity for a leader capable of strategic and operational excellence from an organisation of comparable size and complexity. Your commercial acumen will help the organisation to identify and assess opportunities for the organisation to grow and diversify its revenue.

You will be passionate about improving the lives of young people and have an understanding of the role that technology can play in achieving this. Drawing on your strong communication and storytelling skills, you will excel in managing a wide range of stakeholders including Government so an understanding of the role of Government and policy is highly desirable. You will demonstrate a commitment to excellence in governance, operational and resource management, as well as a proven track record in driving growth and innovation.

You will know the importance of brand management and being led by the needs of young people, as well as the ability to anticipate future trends and demands that may impact ReachOut’s services in the future. You will be required to inspire and lead a strong and purposeful team, and report to a committed and professional Board.

Executive leadership experience within the for-purpose arena is an advantage. This role is full time and is based in Pyrmont, Sydney and may require some travel and after-hours networking.

If you are values-led and driven by the desire to improve the mental health of young people, apply by submitting a CV and covering letter, explaining why this role is of interest and how your experience is relevant.
