Hello, I'm Annette I'm the chair of the board

Our Interim CEO,Rebecca Adam, has accepted an exciting offer for a new position back in Melbourne.
While her 12 month contract as Interim CEO finishes one month earlier than planned, our recruitment of an ongoing CEO will now commence.
I'm proud of the things she has achieved whilst working with us.
Including gaining additional grants and services, improving our customer satisfaction levels even more, and introducing stronger community and stakeholder engagement so we can better understand our customers in order to deliver services that suit their needs, both today and tomorrow.
Thank you Rebecca for your exceptional leadership during this period and wish you well.

As planned WADS is now recruiting for a CEO to help us implement our new strategy.
The core focus of the CEO will be to implement our priorities, which are:

1. Listen and drive organisational focus to customers
2. Stabilise and optimise existing services
3. Create diverse service offerings.

That means we are looking for someone who has led organisations similar in size and nature to WADS through periods of significant transformation.
We want someone who can win the trust and support of diverse staff, customer, community and organisational groups.
We also want someone who can communicate effectively in Auslan and English, ideally with good knowledge of the WA Deaf community.
If you are able to demonstrate capabilities in successfully achieving similar outcomes, then please send your cv and covering letter to The email address below
