Chief Executive Officer - Calisthenics Victoria

  • Lead and grow an evolving State Sporting Organisation
  • Strategic leadership and stakeholder management focus
  • East Oakleigh (Melbourne) based

Calisthenics Victoria Incorporated (CaliVic) is the recognised state sporting association for calisthenics in Victoria and comprises and represents all member clubs/colleges and their performers, coaches and adjudicators.

This is an exciting time to join CaliVic! Work with the Board to develop and implement the 2023-26 strategic plan, including some exciting key initiatives that will sustain the sport’s growth as it recovers from the covid period.

The CEO of CaliVic will provide leadership and direction across the sport, responsible for overseeing the day-to-day management and delivery of the strategic priorities as agreed with the Board.

The role requires the ongoing development and maintenance of strong and effective relationships, with a broad and complex range of internal and external stakeholders. The CEO will need to be a hands-on leader for their staff, to motivate and inspire their team, and be a mentor for the future leaders within the organisation. The CEO will provide leadership and support across all aspects of the sport including operations, finance, high-performance, events, commercial partnerships and communications.

The CEO will be an approachable and diplomatic negotiator, with the ability to guide and inspire the calisthenics family through times of change. As the 'spokesperson' for calisthenics in Victoria, the ability to communicate effectively, including public speaking skills, is essential.

The successful candidate will need a strong understanding of the Victorian sporting industry, leading advocacy and unlocking opportunities for the sport at all levels of government. The individual will also bring a commercial mindset to the role, with the ability to identify new and alternative revenue streams for the sustained success and growth of the sport.

While prior experience in a comparable CEO role will be highly regarded, candidates ready to apply experiences gained from a similarly scaled leadership role will also be considered. A background in calisthenics is not required; however you must be committed to providing strong foundations for the growth of the sport throughout Victoria.
