About the role
About the organisation
Seniors Rights Service is the largest community organisation dedicated to protecting and advancing the rights of older people in NSW. We provide free and confidential telephone advice, aged care advocacy, legal advice and rights-based education forums to seniors across New South Wales with a particular focus on older Australians who are vulnerable or disadvantaged.
In the 2018-19 financial year Seniors Rights Service delivered 4,451 aged care advocacy services and 3,422 legal services across NSW. In the same year our staff travelled the state and provided 1,042 rights-based awareness-raising education events and community forums that were attended by more than 34,000 people.
About the role
We are seeking a suitably qualified and experienced person to join our Board of Directors.
We are funded substantially by a range of government contracts. As the demand for our services grow, marketing, fundraising and partnerships are becoming more significant for the organisation. An exciting opportunity has emerged for a new Board Director to help inform and strengthen these areas.
Experience with marketing, fundraising and/or developing strategic partnerships is essential as well as understanding of the governance requirements and responsibilities of a community organisation. We also require proven ability to attract new sustainable revenues and in-kind services to a business. We welcome someone who has a personal commitment to Seniors Rights Service’s vision and a willingness to work to achieve its objectives.
This is a voluntary position. An ability and readiness to donate time and expertise, and to share professional networks is required.
Gender parity is also important to the Board as is lived experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, culturally and linguistically diverse background, LGBTIQ+, people living with a disability, and/or residence in rural and regional NSW.
