In line with COVID-19 requiremetns there may be times when you will need to work from home via teams meetings, so access to IT facilities is essential. There may be the occasional committee meeting also. You will then be required to write up your notes into formalised minutes, send through to the CEO (and or delegate) for review, who will forward onto the Board for finalisation.

  • excellent understanding of business writing and formal minute terminology;

  • Confidentiality and able to steer board meetings in the right direction and keep board members on track;
  • flexibility and the capacity to travel if required;
  • ability to complete a draft set of minutes in a timely manner.
  • Experience working in the Community Services / Aged Care Sector is preferrable but not essential;
  • Knowledge of governance practices & constitutional requirements; and
