The new CEO will be BWB’s leader, representative and one of its ambassadors, acting as the primary contact for the Board, its partners, and stakeholders. Responsible for setting the culture and pace across the organisation, they will have overall responsibility for the strategic direction and daily operations of BWB across participation and high-performance and ensure the organisation has a sound financial position from which to continue its growth.

The role of the CEO will be to stabilise this new position and turn the transformation of the last few years into ‘business as usual’, providing both guidance and headroom for the strong team beneath them and capitalise on the Commonwealth Games legacy as the team works to maximise elite performance success and enable sustained participation growth. As such, they will focus on embedding the agreed strategy and gains made over the past few years.

The successful candidate may or may not have a background in sport but either way will bring an understanding of what it means to be a high-performing organisation. They will appreciate the unique position of BWB as an organisation with an equal focus on performance and participation, understanding that the sport is reliant on its club network and membership to maximise participants.
