Second Chance Toys NSW Inc

Community Segment: Community & Economic Development, Environment

Current Board Size: 4-7
Board Meetings (frequency): Every two months

State where Board Meetings Held: New South Wales
Local Government Area: The City of Sydney

Any further information about this vacancy:

Second Chance Toys is a community initiative in Australia to rescue and recycle gently used plastic toys by donating them to children in need. Many plastic toys are disposed of when they could still be used. Given the nature of plastic, these toys show little sign of wear and are still in good working condition. When these perfectly useable toys are thrown out, they become waste in landfill, take up a lot of space and do not biodegrade. In conjunction with this unnecessary waste is the fact that many children throughout Australia who could benefit from these toys go without them.

Every child has the right to play. Play is an essential part of learning and growing. Play is children's work and toys are their tools. Toys are vital to a child’s development and help with creativity and imagination.

It is often assumed that all children have access to toys but the reality is very different. Second Chance Toys provides a waste-need solution to these problems. Unwanted toys, that are still useable, are rescued and prepared for distribution to children in need through local community organisations.

We are currently seeking passionate and energetic people to join our Board of Directors and are seeking Board Members who have experience in any of the following areas:

  • Business, Finance and Accounting
  • Fundraising
  • Marketing
  • Business Development
  • Risk and Governance

Board roles also exist for individuals with other skills and interests that could effectively contribute to the ongoing development of Second Chance Toys NSW. If you believe you have a potential role to play within our team, please contact us.

The Board governs and actively contributes to the strategic direction, financial, contractual and compliance decisions.

As a Board we meet 6 times per year and meetings will be held outside of office hours within Sydney CBD or attendance via Skye. Each meeting will generally be 1-2 hours in duration with approximately 2 hours follow up work per month.

To apply online, please send through a brief resume and an outline of why you would like to join our Board of Directors and what you believe will ensure your success on our Board of Directors.
