“Combine your Passion and Profession”
- Australian Market Leader in emerging Surf Park Industry
- High Growth and Dynamic Business
- Key Leadership Position
Wave Park Group is the market leader in the development and operation of man-made surf sport, recreation and leisure facilities in Australia. With “URBNSURF” branded surf park developments underway in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, Wave Park Group plans to be operating ten surf parks in Australia within the next ten years.
Having successfully closed a $28.3 million equity capital raising in early 2018, we are now seeking an enthusiastic and talented finance professional to become a core member of the Group’s senior leadership team in the role of CFO and Company Secretary.
The CFO and Co Sec will have responsibility for the Group’s financial reporting, budgeting, governance and compliance activities, but will also be involved in progressing a variety of commercial and strategic initiatives alongside the Executive Chairman.
You will join a small and dynamic team of highly motivated professionals, each wanting to deliver on the company’s vision of creating surfing and leisure environments that deliver life changing experiences for our guests. In the role of CFO, you will be given the opportunity to help shape the organisation and will play a key role in guiding its growth.
We are seeking an experienced ‘operational’ CFO, or a COO who has come through the CFO route, who possesses highly developed commercial acumen. Ideally, you will also have worked in a growth stage start-up, scale-up, or a dynamic consumer focused business.
The role will suit a hands-on, practically minded, operator who has an eye for detail. We are looking for an “entrepreneurial problem solver” who is seeking the challenge and reward of building a significant operating business in an entirely new market segment. The group’s head office is currently based in Perth, however with surf park facilities opening around Australia, there is potential for this role to be located in either Melbourne or Sydney for the right candidate.
From a personal perspective, you will be passionate about active lifestyles and stoked that you will be helping Australians to be able to ‘#surfmore’. Equally important will be your initiative, enthusiasm and highly developed interpersonal skills.
For those looking to join a pioneering company that is doing something truly exciting and different, then this is the best opportunity in the market.
A remuneration package will be structured commensurate with the successful candidates’ skills, experience and alignment to the role.
