About the role
Who are we seeking?
To assist us to achieve our mission, we are looking for enthusiastic, experienced professionals to join our Committee of Management.
You will ideally have previous governance and/or senior management experience, an understanding of the work of the community services and/or aged care sectors and ability to work as a member of a team. Experience in one or more of the following areas would be very helpful:
- Financial management
- Strategic Planning
- Government Relations
- Aged Care, Community Services, social services
- Marketing and Fundraising
- Human Resources
- Information Technology
While we are seeking General Members for the Committee, people who would, in the future, be able to take on any of the executive roles – i.e. Chair, Deputy Chair, Secretary, Treasurer are encouraged to apply. This is important for the Committee’s succession planning and overall skill composition.
As the majority of our services are provided within the City of Port Phillip, we would welcome interest from people living in these municipalities who may be able to bring ideas on the best way of engaging with residents and other service providers in our area.
Of course, if you live elsewhere and you are interested in what SPDL does, then we would also very much like to talk to you.
Our Committee and small Management team enjoy a very productive working relationship. Together we are passionate and focused on assuring SPDL’s successful future and in this context, we freely share ideas and work together to achieve our goals.
