Board Vacancy: Non-Executive Director (Voluntary)

The Jewish Museum of Australia is seeking to recruit at least two non-Executive Board Directors to help champion its purpose, vision and values into an exciting new era. Appointment is anticipated to commence in the second-half of 2021 to fill casual vacancies, prior to a further vote at Annual General Meeting for an initial three-year term.

Directors of the Jewish Museum serve voluntarily with meetings held on a monthly basis after business hours, approximately ten times per year. Operating in an environment of teamwork and enthusiasm, our Board is highly engaged with members participating in subcommittees in areas of relevant expertise, attending events and supporting the Museum’s Leadership Team.

We are keen to attract Directors who are collegial in nature with excellent communication skills and a strong understanding, interest and background in any of the following areas –

  • Jewish life, culture and history;
  • Museums, galleries, heritage sites, or arts/culture more broadly;
  • Programming, education and learning for all ages;
  • Marketing, communications and public relations; and/or
  • Fundraising and development, particularly for major capital works programs.

Governance experience and qualifications in the not-for-profit sector are highly desired.

As the Museum embarks on a bright and bold next chapter that includes a planned major redevelopment and once in a generation move to a new site, this is an opportune time to become involved.
