About the Role

Fairhaven is a progressive disability service employer and service provider based on the NSW Central Coast whose purpose is to create opportunities where people with disability can achieve what they want from life.

Since 1962 we have worked alongside people living with a disability, offering supported employment, accommodation and community participation. Now operating in the NDIS environment, Fairhaven is poised to create strategic growth through the creation and expansion of innovative social enterprise business models, stronger advocacy and sector leadership.

We are governed by a Board of voluntary Directors committed to Fairhaven’s purpose, and we are now seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified candidates to contribute as capable, active Directors.

The ideal candidates will be sensitive to the needs and current challenges of people who work and live with a disability, likely tertiary qualified and commercially astute with experience in business technology, digital media or change management disciplines.

The Board meets from 5:30pm on the first Monday of each month at our offices in Point Clare on the NSW Central Coast. We also run two sub committees (Finance + Governance & Risk) and Board members are asked to consider a further small contribution to the more relevant of the two.

How to apply for this position
Expressions of Interest should include a cover letter outlining responses to the following questions, together with a current CV which includes a concise list of current and recent relevant commitments, experiences and qualifications:

1. Please provide some detail of how your particular skills and experience could contribute to the governance duties, strategic decisions and future direction of the Board at Fairhaven?
2. Please state specifically why you are you interested in serving on the Board of Fairhaven, (not just within the broader disability sector)?
3. What would you hope to get from Fairhaven as a result of your participation on the Board?
