Director with Business or Entrepreneur Skills

We are the peak body for Carers in the ACT and work with industry and government to make Canberra more carer-friendly. We are also a proud member of the National Network of Carer Associations.

What does our board do?

Primarily our Directors provide strategic awareness to identify possibilities and seize new opportunities to ensure the future direction of the organisation. Directors do this by fulfilling their legal obligations whilst engaging in robust discussions that incorporate real world knowledge, trends and possible futures that guide choices about strategic directions.

Our Board is supported by a Risk and Finance Committee, comprising 3 Board members, which has oversight of the financial and risk management of the organisation.  The organisation employs a team of qualified accountants and Chief Operating Officer (COO) who manage the day to day finances and reporting.  Our Annual Report, annual financial statements (audited by RSM Bird Cameron); and Constitution are available on our website.   

Board Vacancies

Due to the retirement of the Chair of our Risk and Finance Committee, we are seeking to appoint a Director with relevant accounting / finance qualifications and experience. 

Due to the retirement of a Director we are also seeking to appoint a Director with experience in Business Management or Entrepreneurship skills to join the Board.

Carers ACT is committed to the professional development of its staff and volunteers and all new Board members are offered the opportunity to undertake accredited corporate governance training.
