ADAPT Executive Search & Advisory are proud to partner with Housing All Australians www.housingallaustralians.org.au and assist in their search to appoint an additional three (3) non-executive directors to the existing members of its Board.

Housing All Australians (HAA) is a national ‘for purpose’ organisation facilitating the private sector voice to re-position the discussion and action on public social and affordable housing as economic infrastructure. The organisation’s commercial lens is like no other charity in this critically important space. As a registered Australian charity, HAA’s mission is to harness the ability of the private sector and collaborate to address the chronic shortage of low-income affordable housing.

Working closely with the Chair and existing Board members, the appointees will champion new thinking and offer their individual expertise in the below areas:

1. Finance/Treasury

ADAPT seek expressions of interest from seasoned Finance Executives who have a proven track record achieving sustainable long-term success in either a board or executive appointment. This board role will lead the long-term financial strategy of HAA as well as offer advice and guidance on financial and treasury aspects.

We are particularly looking for expertise in the areas of:

  • Establishing the most appropriate strategic and business planning framework for the organisation;
  • Ensuring the necessary policies and procedures for the sound financial management and control of the organisation are in place and effective;
  • Aligning the funding requirements of the organisation with both short and long term financial plans as well as developing effective strategies for fundraising;
  • Developing an investment strategy to prudently manage and grow the organisation's cash reserves.

2. Digital/Technology

ADAPT seek expressions of interest from Executives with a demonstrated track record of success supporting groups with the holistic implementation of best practice in Communication, Digital and Technology. This board role will lead the digital and technology strategy of HAA.

  • Ability to determine relative value of technology/IT services provided;
  • Ability to scope and manage the implementation of the full technology requirements for a large multi-site, multi-project NFP;

  • Ability to communicate the technology vision in plain English to other members of the board that have limited or no technology experience;
  • Ability to manage the basic onboarding of new members and users with regards to the technology platforms used by HAA.

3. Construction

ADAPT are seeking expressions of interest from Executives that have high level technical expertise coupled with a strong profile in the Australian construction industry. It is anticipated that this appointment will further support HAA on their National Pop Up Shelter Strategy, which offers accommodation to those in need.

We are particularly looking for expertise in the areas of:

  • Must be a respected national leader in the construction industry;
  • Ability to access a national network of value aligned construction and project management companies;
  • Ability to draw on, and engage with, national industry supply chains through established relationships;
  • Ability to provide the appropriate oversight and governance of the national Pop Up Shelter program ensuring that OH&S is part of everything HAA and our builder partners do.
