REF: MHPceo1223
  • Foster collaborative primary mental health care and promotion of interdisciplinary practice
  • Further continuous improvement of professional capacity
  • Champion the delivery of innovative education and training


The Position

The Board of Mental Health Professionals’ Network is seeking to appoint a dynamic and talented Chief Executive Officer to continue the momentum created by the incumbent, who is retiring after distinguished service as the inaugural CEO.  Reporting to the Board, the Chief Executive will lead the Executive Team to drive the continuous improvement of professional development for a broad range of mental health practitioners.

With a proven capacity for strategic and analytical thinking coupled with the demonstrated ability to develop and inspire high performing teams, the appointee will be the voice and face of MHPN members, government and engage with other specialty clinical Colleges in Australasia.

The successful candidate will possess broad experience in the management of complex, large-scale programs in a relevant field, coupled with an appreciation of the primary care service systems. In addition, the appointee will have a clear understanding of government funding and the not-for-profit sector and will utilise their strong commercial acumen to grow and sustain the Network into the future. A strong understanding of the sector would be advantageous. The capacity to demonstrate a contemporary approach to education and training is highly desirable, but not essential.

This is a Melbourne based position.


The Organisation

Commencing in 2008, the Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) offers practitioners across Australia the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary programs: 361 mental health practitioner networks and free online professional development webinars and podcasts.

Funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Health and Aged Care, the program represents a fundamental shift in the way mental health professionals work together to improve patient outcomes and workforce sustainability, as well as providing a basis for the establishment of highly effective interdisciplinary support networks and education across the various professional groups working in the mental health sector.
