About the role
Transparency International Australia (TI Australia) wishes to appoint a Treasurer, Non-Executive Director to enhance the skills of the existing board.
Transparency International plays a leading role globally in combating corruption, which is widely recognised to be a serious impediment to economic development and a destabilising social force.
TI Australia is one of more than 100 national chapters worldwide. TI Australia has been operating as an accredited Transparency International chapter since 1995, focusing on ways in which Government and Australian based companies and institutions can address corruption issues.
Ensuring a sustainable funding base for the long term is a critical success factor for TI Australia in delivering its objectives. TI Australia draws its funding from its members and the corporate sector. Maintaining and expanding this funding base will be essential to the future development of the organisation.
TI Australia is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity with the ACNC. The Board is elected by the members of the company.
The TI Australia Board guides the organisation’s strategy, growth, and direction and ensures compliance with its duties and obligations. The Board is responsible for operating in a manner that is consistent with, and contributes to, the global Transparency International movement.
To be successful in this role, the Director will:
• Have strong finance and risk management skills to guide the Board through its obligations of finance and risk oversight, strategy and compliance
• Have CP/CPA qualifications and significant experience in preparation of corporate accounts, auditing, financial compliance and providing financial advice to boards and senior management teams
• Understand and be able to apply a Director’s legal and fiduciary responsibilities
• Contribute to board strategy development and decision making and fulfil board level legal, ethical, fiduciary, risk, and financial duties
• Work in a collaborative way with a highly engaged and collegiate board and a range of other stakeholders
• Have significant experience and knowledge of business, government and stakeholder relations (expertise from the perspective of a not for profit organisation would be highly regarded)
• Participate in and contribute to 56 board / strategy meetings. Some interstate travel is anticipated for meetings.
The appointee will be motivated by the challenge and opportunity of making a positive difference by combating corruption in Australia and on the world stage.
The role is not remunerated but reasonable travel expenses to attend meetings will be reimbursed.
