Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


National Employment Services Association CEO resigns

After nearly 22 years of amazing commitment and dedication to the sector as the CEO of the National Employment Services Association (NESA), CEO Sally Sinclair has decided to step down from her role.

As NESA’s Inaugural Chair in 1997, and having been appointed CEO in 2001, Sally has represented members and the sector since the contracting out of Public Employment Services, witnessing a myriad of programs and contract variations throughout this time. Having overseen countless procurement cycles, Sally has always proudly led from the front being fearless in her representation for a high-quality sector that delivers tangible outcomes for unemployed and disadvantaged participants in Australia, a representation that members have repeatedly were of high value.   

In recent discussions, Sally indicated that she was keen to pursue the next chapter of her career and life post her current role. With the recent Workforce Australia procurement and implementation and the resultant Select Committee Inquiry along with the proposed reforms to Disability Employment Services and to the Community Development Program this appeared to be the opportune time to allow a new generation of leadership to make their mark representing NESA's valued members and the sector overall.

The Board is very appreciative of the open and transparent discussions to date with Sally providing maximum flexibility to ensure a seamless transition of leadership ideally by the end of April 2023. Accordingly, in the very near future a national campaign will commence to assist the quest to identify the very best candidate to continue the great work demonstrated by Sally as CEO over the past 21 years.
