Their aim is to ensure the dignity of all is realised through compassion and justice so you must have a passion for service to the poor and a commitment to justice.
As a result of the merger Mary Mackillop Today are looking to appoint three new Non-Executive Directors to their board. With a genuine commitment to the work undertaken, you will have an excellent understanding of good governance and the for-purpose (not-for-profit) sector.

You will be considerate, but curious around better ways to deliver greater impact in support of the organisations mission and vision. In particular, we are seeking expressions of interest from individuals who have experience in the education sector, risk and / or indigenous inclusion.
