Have you considered joining our Board?
CareSouth is a local, community-based organisation with a dynamic and bold vision to make a difference ‘every day’. Working across locations in NSW and ACT, we seek to inspire each other and the communities in which we operate. Our purpose is to influence and support the safety, development and empowerment of children, young people, adults and communities.
CareSouth is governed by a voluntary, passionate Board. The role of the Board is to determine the strategic direction of the organisation in line with developments in the Community Services sector and in collaboration with the Executive team; ensuring compliance with all legal requirements; ensuring organisational risks are effectively mitigated; appointing and monitoring the performance and development of the CEOs; and representing CareSouth in the community.
Our current Board is stable and well established, but we are keen to introduce a fresh perspective by recruiting two or three new Directors.
If you are passionate about ensuring every child has the best start possible in life, this could provide a meaningful and memorable opportunity.
We look for individuals who:
• are motivated to affect real change in the lives of vulnerable people
• have a sound understanding of Governance and the role of the Director and Board
• are from a diverse background and have a curious mindset
• are team players who are open minded, respectful and collegiate
• has the willingness, commitment and time to contribute to a dynamic team
We are seeking individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds and / or from the areas of regional NSW in which we operate, Batemans Bay, Deniliquin, Goulburn, Queanbeyan/Canberra and Wagga Wagga.
Your commitment to Board related activities is only 6-8 hours a month. Board meetings occur monthly. You can attend in person at our Nowra office or virtually via MS Teams. There could be other support activities in the form of working groups and community-based events.
Applications should include a covering letter and current resume which details your expertise, qualifications, experience and capabilities.
