Bring a clear vision and help set the strategy to make the most of emerging technologies in support of our mission for Australian consumers.

  • Build impactful strategies and guide transformation and continuous improvement
  • Ensure external and internal users of CHOICE technology have a consistent, high quality user experience
  • Lead technology teams to actively collaborate on wider organisational objectives

CHOICE has been giving people clear-cut advice about products and services since 1959, initially with CHOICE magazine and now through a number of digital tools and services.

As a not for profit our activities are intended to benefit not only CHOICE members but also the wider public in pursuit of fair, just and safe markets. We campaign, test and review services, and provide digital tools and content to help consumers make better informed decisions.

We understand the importance of investment in growing our capability to anticipate and serve the evolving needs of consumers so we rely on a wide range of technology to inform and deliver our mission.

About the Opportunity

As an Executive Director you will work with the CEO and board to lead the development and execution of data and technology strategy and investment that enables CHOICE to achieve its goals.

Key priorities include developing opportunities for digital transformation, innovation and automation as well as continuing to refine our data capability and governance.

  • Embed capability that is able to flex and respond to emerging opportunities and needs
  • Ensure board and executive teams are able to measure the value of technology investments
  • Build on cyber-security, privacy and data risk management capability
  • Engage with and develop staff to understand and assess key cyber-security, privacy and data risks

About You

You are a technology & data champion. Having an advanced understanding of data governance as well as enterprise architecture has led you to take on significant transformation projects in the past. You are able to balance your natural tendency to identify optimal solutions with the need to garner support and act with limited information when a fast decision is required.

  • Experience in leading the development and delivery of enterprise-level technology strategy
  • Practical experience of introducing emerging technologies driving innovation in B2C services and applying them to support new product development
  • Deep understanding of Agile and experience supporting staff delivering product through cross-functional teams
  • Experience in supporting the application of data analytics to drive organisational performance

Whilst it is not essential you have held executive leadership roles in the past you do have conviction in your ability to bring vision and engage people across an organisation to respond to the changing technology landscape.


CHOICE is an ethical workplace that walks and talks the organisational values Truth, Help and Impact. We care about our staff and take work-life balance seriously. Staff perks include an in-house bike fleet, staff veggie garden and regular social-committee events, plus the chance to work on our staff-led social and environmental impact initiatives.

We believe that a diverse and inclusive workplace creates a positive working environment for all employees that helps us better represent Australian consumers. We're committed to accessibility and flexibility in the workplace and encourage applications from a diverse range of people.
