Website Royal Flying Doctors Service Victoria
At RFDS Victoria, we are very excited to offer two RFDS Victoria Board Observer roles for a 12-month period, commencing 2nd October 2019.
We hope this opportunity will appeal to leaders who are interested in becoming future board directors for Not for Profit Boards.
The successful candidates will be observers (non-voting member) of RFDS Victoria’s Board and attend six bi-monthly meetings and other key dates. Board meetings are predominantly held at 345 Bridge Road Richmond and run from 7:30am until around midday. At least one meeting is held annually at a regional location (to be determined).
We understand the challenge that may be created by travel and the early start and are happy to support by providing overnight accommodation prior to 7.30am meetings if required.
During this period the Observers will learn about fundamental principles and functions of not for profit boards, the roles of board members, fiscal processes and governance responsibilities, as well as the strategic direction of the Royal Flying Doctor Service here in Victoria and nation-wide.
This 12-month program will provide the successful applicants with first-hand exposure to the role of a Board and its decision making providing the observers important insight for their future careers as board members.
This is a voluntary opportunity and in addition to attending board meetings, the commitment would include involvement in a Board planning day in November/December plus an assortment of invitations to RFDS events and functions. (Approx. 4-6 per year)
Applicants should provide the following;
– Cover Letter addressing why they are seeking this opportunity, their skills and professional experience that would benefit a Not for Profit Board
– Current Resume
– The successful candidates will be asked for a letter of endorsement from their employer (if applicant) to accept this position
