SEEKING: Finance Manager – The Australian Golf Club

Sep 6, 2017   //   by Mathilda   //   Featured, Golf Jobs  //  No Comments

The Australian Golf Club is recognised as one of Australia’s pre-eminent golf clubs with a proud history of having hosted 19 Australian Open tournaments to date, and scheduled to host again this year, in 2019, 2021 and 2023.

Beyond its world-class golf course and tournament hosting track record, the Australian Golf Club has outstanding clubhouse facilities for members and guests. With a strong membership and forward thinking Board, this role becomes available at a very attractive time in the Club’s development.

Reporting to the CEO you will have overall responsibility for the Club’s finance function. You will lead the finance team to manage the organization’s financial planning and accounting practices as well as its relationship with investment/lending institutions and the financial community. This will involve providing the CEO, management team and Board with timely and accurate financial data to ensure the management, oversight and governance of the organisation is to the highest standards.

Strong commercial acumen will combine with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of business practices including; financial monitoring and management, strategic planning, performance management, and corporate governance principles. This will combine with experience in managing the finance function of a similar sized organisation with membership-based or club organisation exposure beneficial. However, a background in other sectors such as hospitality or tourism would also be considered. Tertiary qualifications in a relevant discipline as well as CA or CPA membership would be expected.

This role is the perfect platform to build out your broader stakeholder engagement capabilities as a key member of a front-facing management team. Very much a golfers’ club, an interest in golf and an appreciation for the history, traditions, standing and culture of The Australian Golf Club would be desirable.

Ellington Savage has been appointed by the Australian Golf Club to handle the recruitment of this role. If you would like to find out more, please contact Mark Matehaere or Alexandra L’Estrange on +61 2 8234 0200. Contact Email:
