Everyone has a story that influenced their choice to work at an inspirational and impactful organisation like SBS. For some it’s because we are one of the most unique public broadcasters in the world today. For others it’s because we are the only media organisation dedicated to exploring, reflecting and celebrating the rich diversity of contemporary Australia. Or maybe it’s because our unique purpose and world class content play such an important role in contributing to our ongoing success as a cohesive multicultural nation.
We are looking for an exceptional leader who shares our commitment and passion for the SBS Charter and our purpose - to inspire all Australians to explore, respect and celebrate our diverse world and in doing so, contribute to a cohesive society.
Reporting to the SBS Board of Directors, the Managing Director is charged with continuing to drive a compelling vision for the future of Australia’s only dedicated multicultural and Indigenous broadcaster, and ensuring its ongoing value to all Australians.
The successful candidate will already be an accomplished executive and leader, and will be responsible for the leadership, management, strategic direction, oversight and fulfillment of the SBS Charter, as well as providing effective, inspiring leadership to our large and diverse workforce. As the leader of a highly-respected national institution, the Managing Director is the public face of our organisation and is responsible for representing the interests of SBS to the Australian public, community leaders and groups, industry, the commercial sector and government stakeholders.
As a hybrid-funded broadcaster, the Managing Director will need to balance the management of our commercial revenues and relationships with SBS’s commitments to meeting the needs of the diverse communities we serve. This needs to be achieved against the backdrop of a rapidly changing and evolving media sector, and responding to the demands of our audiences.
