The Principal (Head of Practice) is a key leadership position within the organisation.

The Principal will serve as a partner to the CEO and senior management team of the organisation with a focus on four key areas of CoDesign’s operations: Projects, Proposals, People and Processes.

CoDesign is a small but rapidly growing organisation. We are flying while we are building structure, protocols and systems to improve the efficiency of our team and ensure that we are able to deliver social benefit.

As Head of Practice, the Principal is responsible for operational management, project/program delivery, quality assurance and business development, while fostering a strong team culture. It is expected that Principal will achieve much of the system development and management tasks through project work, rather than as a separate task.

The candidate must have solid working experience in consulting and good business management skills. An innovative thinker, the candidate will contribute to the organisation’s business development including proposal writing as well as generating new project concepts and ideas to pitch to clients.
