Looking for a strategist, innovator and seasoned governance expert….
AEIOU Foundation is a profit-for purpose organisation established in Brisbane almost 20 years ago. It is a unique medium-sized enterprise, and the largest provider of its kind in Australia. AEIOU specialises in providing intensive pathways of early intervention for children with autism and supports families in the early years of their child’s autism diagnosis. AEIOU is committed to its vision to enhance the lives of children with autism (and their families) through evidence-based, successful early intervention programs and practical support.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lifelong development disorder that affects each individual differently. Research continues into the causes of autism, but we know high-quality early intervention can make a significant difference to a child’s development, and opportunities later in life.
At AEIOU, children are supported to develop various life skills to encourage independence, build confidence and foster community inclusion and participation. Families also receive support and training, as partners in their child’s early intervention journey.
Two positions are available on this intellectual Board.
The successful candidates for each role will be a senior executive who has run effective leadership/management roles in charitable, education or NFP organisations. If you’ve also managed and driven change or transformed a commercial business, so much the better.
Since it’s expected you will have made notable contributions to other Boards – ideally those concerned with healthcare, research, education, disability, childcare and/or social advocacy – your financial acumen and first-rate grasp of governance are a given. As are your excellent networking, communication and inter-personal skills.
Respectful, collaborative, compassionate and insightful, you can bring to the table the skills of a strategist, original thinker and quality improvement proponent. Service, accountability, kindness and a commitment to social justice will comprise part of the personal values you live every day.
If you want to be part of a movement to help children overcome the many disabling aspects of autism and live their best lives, please get in touch and tell us why you would be a valuable addition to this important Board.
To be considered for this role, please forward your cover letter and resume in WORD format quoting reference number KJBMAF to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Dylys Bertelsen or Kaye Jeffers on 07 3211 0001.
