Chief executive officer

Ironbark Aboriginal Corporation

Ironbark Aboriginal Corporation (Ironbark) is a not-for-profit organisation based in Darwin, NT. The organisation was established in 2000 following extensive consultation with Indigenous organisations and communities in the broader Darwin area. From these discussions, a unique governance model was developed with representation and participation based on regional community organisations.

Ironbark has grown markedly over the years, developing from a small Community Development and Employment Program (CDEP) entity to a medium sized service provider.  Ironbark successfully delivers community, employment and enterprise programs to urban, regional and remote communities throughout the greater Darwin/Daly Region of the Northern Territory.

Current program delivery encompasses Remote Jobs & Communities Program, Job Services Australia, Indigenous Community Links and Aboriginal Bush Traders.
