Stacy Treloar will fill the role of CEO of the Far West Community Legal Centre.
Ms Treloar will be coached on the position before starting work in mid-November.
Ms Treloar applied for the position after her previous workplace, the Portia Gold Mine, closed down.
“I was in the process of looking for employment when I noticed the advert for the CEO role,” Ms Treloar said.
“I thought this was the best second chance to progress my career and do something even better than what I have done.
“I thought it would be a nice exciting challenge.”
Cathy Farry has spent three years in the top job, and is looking forward to handing over the reins.
“I’ve learnt a lot over the last three years,” Ms Farry said.
“It’s been really good.”
Ms Farry will be setting aside time to assist Ms Treloar in her new role for the first couple of weeks.
The Community Legal Centre is organising a tender for core funding while also preparing for its AGM next month.
“I thought it would be a bit rude to thrust a new CEO in to do that,” Ms Farry said.
“There’s a lot to it because of all the different components.”
Ms Treloar said she was excited to be working alongside various groups and staff members at the Community Legal Centre in the coming weeks.
“I’m really looking forward to it, I think it’s going to be very rewarding,” Ms Treloar said.
