The letter ‘H’ is made up of two connected uprights, perfectly balanced. It’s no coincidence then, that Head and Heart begin with H. Because it’s these perfectly balanced attributes that can secure the role of CEO for this Historic organisation.

Our Lady of Consolation (OLOC) was established over 75 years ago by the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (FMM). Its mission was to care for at-risk women in Sydney’s Surry Hills. Today,their Holistic services embrace and deliver care to elderly and vulnerable people across Sydney’s West and North West.

Are you the Humble, Honest and Highly cognitive Humanitarian we’re seeking who can take this Honourable organisation to the next level?


As OLOC’s new Chief Executive Officer, you’ll need to strike a harmonious balance between being strategic, purposeful and adaptable, and respectful, diligent and moderate. You’ll also require:

  • Experience on an executive leadership team
  • Previous experience as a CEO in a related sector is preferred, but not essential

  • Maintaining and fostering a strong CEO/Board relationship

They’re supported by the FMM sisters, an international congregation of women whose Higher purpose is to improve quality of life for people living in adversity, regardless of faith (or no faith), background, diversity or beliefs.
