We welcome applications from individuals from a variety of experiences and backgrounds, including but not limited to people who bring experience in:

  • Business development & income generation

  • Disability advocacy
  • Education & Research
  • Human Resources / Legal

Please note: we particularly encourage applications from individuals who are historically under- represented on boards due to age, disability, ethnicity, faith or belief, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, education, socio-economic background, or those with caring responsibilities.
