Scouts Australia Seeks Chairperson - National Executive Committee (Volunteer Role) Print E-mail

Applications close 5pm – 1st May 2015.

Are you a dynamic and innovative individual who has worked actively within a Board environment and ready for a new challenge? Scouts Australia, Australia's largest youth organisation, is looking for an exceptional leader to fill the role of Chairperson for its National Executive Committee

As a key member of the Scouts Australia National Team you will be required to work closely with the National Chief Commissioner and National Chief Executive. You will play a major role in ensuring
Scouts Australia achieves its strategic and operational objectives, building on its 100+ years of successfully developing leadership skills in young Australian women and men.

With a strong ability to work with people and expertise in corporate governance, you will be required to provide leadership to the NEC (Board) to ensure its outputs align with the National Strategic Plan.
It is expected that the new Chairperson will have strong community values, Board or similar experience, understand the Not-for-Profit environment and be adventurous. Current membership of Scouts
Australia is not a prerequisite.

This challenging position would suit an Australian Institute of Company Directors member, or similar, who understands the value of volunteering and the importance of youth development to
Australia's future. This volunteer role would commence in June 2015 with an initial appointment term of three years. The role can be performed from any location in Australia, and will include travel to
interstate and international meetings.
