100 Story Building is a centre for young writers in Footscray. In our very tall (or very deep?) building, we deliver creative storytelling workshops for schools, families and young people to support them in a love of reading and writing. Our mission is to provide opportunities for the most marginalised children and young people in our community to build the literacy skills, confidence and sense of belonging that are fundamental to future success.
The 100 Story Building board is currently recruiting for a new director to help guide a small team with big ideas about delivering impact in the community. This is your opportunity to contribute to the strategic direction of our organisation by sharing your skills, knowledge and networks, helping us to achieve our social purpose of improving wellbeing and opportunities for culturally and linguistically diverse and socio-economically disadvantaged children and young people.
We are seeking a passionate, committed person with strong, senior level experience in financial management.

We would prefer a director who can also serve on a relevant sub-committee, with an additional commitment of up to 6 meetings per year.
Board directorships are voluntary, unpaid positions appointed for a term of 3 years. People from culturally and linguistically diverse and/or Indigenous backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
