We are seeking a Board Secretary with administrative experience and skills to help ensure the organised and compliant governance of the school. Board members are responsible for ensuring we adhere to all government and related industry regulations and requirements. We are looking for a community member who is supportive of Steiner educational philosophy who would like to be a part of this growing school. This is a rewarding volunteer position for someone who has reasonable time to dedicate to the important tasks required. The role requires approximately 3-5 hours a week in the form of:

  • responding regularly to emails
  • preparing all papers for and attending monthly Board meetings (Thursday evenings - 6 weekly)
  • writing and distributing meeting minutes
  • being responsible for the e-filing and maintenance of all Board documents
  • ensuring all systems and procedures are being adhered to
  • onboarding and offboarding new Board members
  • actioning any tasks identified in meetings
  • possibly working on a specific project/subcommittee
  • A high level of computer literacy and experience with different software programs is essential, as well as a high standard of organisation.

If you would like to support the aims and ethos of our school and help it in this exciting phase of development, please get in touch.

PLEASE NOTE: As a board member of a not-for-profit organisation, this position will ONLY and ALWAYS be volunteer. It will not turn into a paid position. We are also looking for people who are willing to commit long-term, and who have adequate time, energy and dedication to spare. This is not for professionals who work full time and already have several other out-of-work commitments.
