Opportunity for a visionary Director with the appropriate skills and passion to help children and young people find their voice.

This progressive non-profit organisation, with 40 years' experience, runs a range of clinics, training services, and a school, supporting the 1 in 14 children across Australia with Language Disorder. Speech & Language Developement Australia's (SALDA) team of therapists and teachers are experienced, committed and most importantly enjoy working with children to realise their full potential.

Led by a visionary and entrepreneurial Board and with a new strategic plan in place, we are ready to embrace the future. Great change brings great opportunity. As we continue to progresss into the new world of the NDIS, the plan is to extend the reach of our services, without prejudicing the high standards of service delivery or the values underpinning them.

To that end, we seek to appoint a new Director with both general and relevant expertise. The person would be a specialist with experience in transforming a grants-based charitable organisation into a business where sustainable sources of income enables it to compete in the newly commercial, non-profit (profit-for-purpose) landscape.

Ideally with previous Board experience, the applicant would have the passion to guide the existing Board members and Executive Management Team to manage and drive change within the community services sector. It is anticipated the applicant will bring a strong belief in their own capabilities, a capable pair of hands, an unquenchable spirit and a strong sense of equality and social justice.

The Board's commitment is to advise, govern, oversee policy and direction, assist the CEO and contribute to the work of appropriate committees that meet several times each year. The workload can be expected to run to about 10 hours oer month.

To be considered please submit your cover letter and resume in a word document to chair@salda.org.au or phone Gareth Davies on 0477 777 044.

Role: General Board Member
