Raising Literacy Australia is an iconic South Australian not-for-profit organisation committed to enriching lives through literacy. The organisation supports families to read, talk, play and sing with their children from birth; providing books and resources to nurture children and encourage parents’ engagement in their child’s early learning.
After a long and successful stewardship the current Chair, is relinquishing the role. Accordingly Raising Literacy Australia is seeking a new Chair to lead the organisation into the next phase of its development and complement the skills of existing Board members.
This is a part-time, voluntary position for a candidate who possess a successful track record in senior executive and/or non-executive positions. Sound business and commercial acumen and contemporary corporate governance knowledge, together with excellent communication, business and philanthropic development, will also be required. Education sector experience and GAICD status will be an advantage but are not prerequisites.
Importantly, applicants will need to demonstrate an authentic motivation to contribute their passion and expertise to the governance of an organisation making a tangible difference in the lives of children and their parents.
Expressions of interest from both emerging and seasoned governance professionals will be considered.
This is a rare opportunity to make a genuine and valuable contribution to the strategic direction of this prominent South Australia institution.
