  • Unique and exciting opportunity
  • Newly created role
  • Support an exciting future


The Position

This newly created position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will be responsible for both the strategic future direction and day-to-day operations of the Celtic Club. Designing and implementing a variety of exciting events and activities and ensuring these are appropriately budgeted and delivered for the enjoyment of members will be essential. This will require excellent relationship management skills when communicating with members, the Committee as well as a variety of service providers engaged to support the operations of the Club.

The Celtic Club is part of closely connected group of Irish-Australian associations and so the CEO will need to appropriately connect with these Associations in promoting certain activities that will benefit the broader Irish-Australian Community and the Club’s members. The CEO will also be responsible for ensuring safe custody, maintenance, and appropriate use of Club assets, as well as compliance to the Club’s rules and applicable laws. The CEO will need to monitor personnel employed to undertake the Accounting and Membership administration functions for the Club.

Another important aspect of the role is the management and oversight of the strategic plan as set by the Committee. This plan currently involves establishment of a suitable venue to base Club activities and management of gaming entitlements.


The Organisation

Founded in 1887, the Celtic Club is Australia’s first and oldest Irish Club. The Celtic Club’s mission is to nurture and share Irish, Irish-Australian, and Celtic culture in Melbourne and beyond through education, entertainment, sport and fellowship. The Club is an association of members who expect the Club to organise and promote activities that support this mission.

The Celtic Club supports and celebrates pride in Irish heritage and culture and that of the broader Celtic community. We provide opportunities for the benefit, education and enjoyment of members and guests that promote and encourage Gaelic language, Irish music, art and culture, and more. We curate a collection of Celtic literature, cultural artefacts and related material for the benefit of our Members and Celtic heritage groups from all over Victoria. Our role is at the heart of our community, where we act as a hub which supports the endeavours of the Club and our partner organisations.
