Chief Executive Officer - Nepabunna

Nipapanha Community Aboriginal Corporation
  • Are you resilient, resourceful and reliable?
  • Do you love outback Australia and working with Indigenous Communities?

Nipapanha Community Aboriginal Corporation is seeking a Chief Executive Officer to lead and grow its community and business.

Our community

Our Adnyamathanha community lives in Nepabunna in South Australia. Adnyamathanha (ad-nya-mut-na) means “rock” (Andya) and “group” or “group of people” (matha). Our people used to roam throughout country from the Northern Flinders South to Port Augusta and as far east as Broken Hill. When pastoral leases were established our people were forced to camp together and travel less. Five tribes then came together the Kuyani, Wailpi, Yadliaura, Pilatapa and Pangkala.

Nepabunna is nestled in the picturesque northern Flinders Ranges region, 65km east of Leigh Creek on Adnyamathanha traditional lands. Nipapanha Community Aboriginal Corporation (NCAC) is an indigenous community-run corporation and responsible for managing governance, programs and services for the Nepabunna community. NCAC also manages the 58,000ha Nantawarrina Indigenous Protected Area, Australia’s first officially declared indigenous protected area (IPA). Nepabunna is a remote township with facilities limited to NCAC services, Centrelink kiosk services and visiting medical clinic services. Other services and supplies are accessed from Leigh Creek.

NCAC Values

NCAC, its community members and employees believe in:

  • The wellbeing of the community as a whole
  • Taking personal responsibility
  • Being respectful of others at all times
  • Contributing to the community
  • Being self-reliant and resilient
  • Being ethical and fair
  • Being resourceful and flexible

The position

The CEO’s role is to provide overall leadership and management for the organisation to ensure the aspirations of the members are achieved. The CEO has overall responsibility for all governance, reporting, staff and project management and local services delivery in line with relevant legislation and funding agreements. This role operates within a cross-cultural setting. It requires a leader that is flexible & adaptable, who is able to work with multiple stakeholders at any given time.

About you

You share our values and demonstrate exemplary ethical standards and personal integrity in everything you do. You possess personal qualities of determination, initiative, pragmatism, tolerance and flexibility. You are able to work effectively in a cross-cultural setting and with multiple stakeholders. You stay focussed and manage multiple tasks and respond effectively to unexpected demands. A willingness to "roll-up your sleeves" to get the job done, diplomatic and problem-solving skills are second-nature to you. You understand that remote communities have unique challenges that require practical problem-solving, foresight in planning and ongoing communication with board members, community members and stakeholders.

This is an excellent career and lifestyle opportunity for an active and positive manager to join our community and to continue the good work of our local government community organisation. NCAC has been operating since 1974 and is now actively working to grow our community and opportunities for indigenous businesses as well as show-case Nantawarrina IPA.
