About the role
Founded in 1963, Lifeline is a national charity providing all Australians experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24-hour crisis support and suicide prevention services. People access Lifeline’s support and services through the 24-hour crisis line 13 11 14 (somewhere in Australia there is a new call to Lifeline every minute) face-to-face services, and online and mobile mediums.
There is currently a vacancy on the Board of Lifeline Australia. In making this appointment the Board would like to augment their capabilities in strategy and marketing, enhance diversity, and increase geographic representation on the Board from areas outside of New South Wales and Victoria.
As a National Board Member you will be responsible for overseeing the strategic direction of the organisation, fostering good relationships with National Office staff and Lifeline’s various stakeholders and participating in regular Board and Committee meetings. As part of its commitment to diversity, the Board strongly seeks and welcomes registrations of interest from Indigenous Australians.
