Australia's professional footballer's union is on the hunt for a new CEO with John Didulica confirming he's leaving the job.

The PFA confirmed on Tuesday that Didulica will be leaving the position when his current contract expires on Wednesday.

Didulica has been in the role for four years and was a key negotiator for players with the FFA and clubs during the A-League's COVID-19 shutdown.

“It is an incredible honour to work in football and to serve footballers as Chief Executive of the PFA, but everybody who works in the sport knows how all-consuming it is," Didulica said.

"After so many consecutive years involved, I really want to step back and spend more time with my wonderful wife and daughters.
 
“I am so proud of the work the PFA has done in recent years and, more recently, the institutional strength we demonstrated to preserve our entire staff to service players during the unprecedented professional and wellbeing challenges presented by COVID-19. 
 
“We have built a great team and I have no doubt they will continue to steward the business to ensure we continue supporting the players and building the game.”
