Positioned as a highly respected organisation that will continue to have real impact and influence on climate change mitigation in Australia, the Carbon Market Institute is now at an exciting time in its evolution and is looking for a commercially astute Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to build on the strong reputation of the organisation and to lead and inspire its growth.
As CEO, you will be the public face of the CMI and be responsible for the design and delivery of the vision, strategy and programs of the organisation. This includes managing critical relationships with all facets of government, CMI members and other key stakeholders. You will have a creative and entrepreneurial approach to the future of the CMI underpinned by a robust commercial framework to ensure financial sustainability. You will oversee delivery of core projects and programs, in particular the annual Australasian Emissions Reduction Summit which has successfully built a reputation as the largest climate change and business event in Australia, increasing regional interest and influence. You will also lead the overall governance, financial management and operation of the CMI.
Working closely with the board of directors, you will be responsible for strategic and operational business planning and performance, and the management of day-to-day operations, people and resources. Your ability to lead, motivate and inspire a small, professional and passionate team will be critical.
As CEO of a peak body, you will ensure that the CMI best represents and supports its diverse member base. This includes leading policy and advocacy development and being a primary spokesperson for the organisation and its members; ensuring that a highly informed and credible business voice is heard and valued “inside the tent”.
Using your exceptional and well-honed communication and relationship management skills, you will be committed to engaging a wide range of stakeholders including members, government, industry and media. This is an outstanding opportunity for a commercially astute and entrepreneurial leader with strong strategic, financial, operational and people management skills gained in the public or the private sector. A deep experience and sophisticated understanding of, and interest in, current Australian and global affairs and trends relating to carbon markets and climate change would be highly regarded.
The Board of the Carbon Market Institute is undertaking an external search for a new Chief Executive Officer, which is being led by People for Purpose, who have now advertised the role publicly. Enquiries may be directed to People for Purpose on 0468 625 252.
