About the role

Join a board that changes the lives of people every day
Join World Vision Australia’s Board for an exceptional opportunity to contribute to a community of change-makers who transform the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.

You will be part of World Vision’s international partnership – a global movement – a Christian humanitarian organisation with 35,000 staff and 3.3 million supporters in 100 countries who will stop at nothing to transform communities, campaign for change and help save lives.

Our world faces complex global issues and your contribution gives you the power to be part of the solution and make change that lasts for generations.

We’re looking for passionate and influential leaders to join our board and create a better, fairer and more just world.

The opportunity
We are seeking to appoint several non-executive directors to the board to play a critical role in the delivery of strategy and governance for World Vision Australia.

You will feel energised and committed to the mission and outcomes of World Vision Australia and want to contribute to solving our world’s complex issues, including climate change, inequality, famine and child exploitation. You will play an integral role in supporting impact at scale and reaching those most at need.

Experienced non-executive directors and/or senior executives in CEO or C-suite roles from a variety of backgrounds are sought, including:

  • finance and accounting;
  • digital and technology;
  • marketing and sales;
  • legal; or
  • community development.

In addition to these skill areas, you may also have expertise in revenue raising and philanthropy, which is considered advantageous but not essential.

We are keen for expressions of interest across Australia as World Vision Australia’s board seeks to embrace diversity that is representative of the Australian population. In order to promote gender equality and diversity on our board and in line with our international partnership agreement, we would be particularly interested to receive applications from female candidates, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and candidates from diverse backgrounds.

Joining World Vision Australia’s board means you transform lives by empowering everyday Australians to create meaningful change for a cause they believe in.

Are you ready to do something meaningful? We want to hear from you.

Applications close on Wednesday, 17 November 2021.
