Are you passionate about improving the quality of member experience? Do you thrive in a fast paced environment in which you have the opportunity to lead transformational change? Would you like to enable change that unites a foundational sport?
Coles Little Athletics Australia (LAA) shares a vision with Athletics Australia (AA) to transform athletics into the biggest participation sport in Australia with a clear and logical pathway for athletes, coaches and officials throughout their life in the sport. OneAthletics is the proposal to achieve this vision through a merger of the organisations. The plan is to establish a new single national athletics organisation (OneAthletics) in October 2020.
LAA requires a senior Program Manager (PM) with expertise in change management to lead the organisation’s OneAthletics body of work. The ideal candidate will be the primary interface between LAA and our external stakeholders, especially AA, Sport Australia and LAA’s state and territory member associations. In this high-profile role, they will collaborate with numerous operational, development and product teams inside and outside LAA to identify, define and specify solutions that create the conditions for a merger that delivers on the promise of the OneAthletics vision. The PM will build collaborative relationships, working closely with others to identify and resolve barriers to success and to create and execute change. They will experience a wide range of problem-solving situations, strategic to real-time, requiring extensive use of data collection and analysis, and will prepare and execute regular program updates to the LAA Chief Executive Officer and the LAA Board of Directors.
