The AACHWA Board of Directors is currently seeking a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). We require a leader with outstanding communications skills to build stakeholder relations and drive our strategic priorities forward.

The Aboriginal Art Centre Hub WA (AACHWA) is the peak body for Aboriginal art centres in Western Australia. AACHWA promotes the value of Aboriginal art centres to a broad range of stakeholders and advances the skills of organisations and individuals across the Aboriginal visual arts sector.

AACHWA supports the development and growth of art centres by providing experience and expertise and upskilling art centre staff and artists across marketing, fundraising, governance, community relations, reporting and business skills development. AACHWA services respond to the challenges facing art centres as they build the artistic and economic potential of their respective communities.

The successful candidate will meet the following essential criteria:

  • Skills and experience in successful network development, lobbying and advocacy at all levels of government, business and in the community and the capacity to effectively represent and promote an organisation and its vision.
  • Clear strategic thinking, planning and organisational leadership skills.
  • A successful track record in identifying, securing and acquitting grants and financial resources.
  • Ability to lead and manage the governance, administration, and services of a not-for-profit charitable organisation.
  • Knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander societies and cultures and the issues affecting Indigenous people in contemporary Australian society.

In addition to these criteria, Aboriginality will be highly regarded but is not an essential criterion.

Only applications which meet the requirements of the application package will be considered. To request an application package, please contact Laura Taylor (AACHWA Operations Officer) on (08) 9200 6248 or via email at support@aachwa.com.au.
