Board Chair & Non-Executive Director positions
- Shape critical community services
- Paid appointments that recognise your contribution and expertise
The Board of Quantum are currently seeking to appoint a new Chairperson, following the valuable contribution that Roland Davies has made for a number of years as Chair. The role of the Chair is an important link between the Board and the organisation’s management via the CE. The role is to provide leadership, support and direction to the Directors through the development and implementation of its Strategic Plan. The Board consists of a Chair, Deputy Chair and six Members. In addition to the routine Board meetings, Members also generally participate on 1 or 2 of the Board sub-committees. The sub- committees focus on key areas of strategic interest. Current sub-committees are: Finance and Audit, Quality and Risk, People Culture and Safety, and Remuneration and Performance.
Expressions of interest are invited from community members for both Chair and Non-Executive Director positions. Importantly, candidates will demonstrate a strong alignment to the Quantum mission and offer previous governance experience. Expertise spanning strategy, risk, finance, service quality, government relations and stakeholder engagement is desired.
2-hour Board meetings are held bimonthly with subcommittee meetings held during the alternate month.
