New Horizons for Women wishes to appoint at least two new Trustees and applications are invited from members of New Zealand Federation of Business and Professional Women.
If you are passionate about the value that education and quality research adds to women’s lives this is an opportunity to volunteer as a Trustee on the board of a thriving national charity.
The New Horizons for Women Trust supports education, innovation and research which benefits women. The trust achieves this by administering a variety of awards that help New Zealand women
- complete second chance education
- research issues of significance to New Zealand women and girls
- promote peace and eliminate family violence
- advance their careers
We particularly wish for applications from women with small business marketing and/or Not for Profit funding. Young women, Maori and Pacific women and women living in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland are particularly encouraged to apply. However any woman who would like to become a Trustee and support the work of the Trust is very welcome to apply.
Applicants must have good communication skills, be able to work independently and as part of a team. Computer and internet access, and the ability to run Dropbox (an online file system) is essential.
New Horizons for Women is a working trust so trustees undertake the work of the trust with administrative support from officers who are also volunteers. The Trust does not have an office and uses Dropbox as a means of communication. Monthly meetings (one hour in the early evening) are held by teleconference and there are usually three face to face meetings in Wellington each year starting on Friday evening until mid-afternoon on Saturday. Expenses to attend these meetings are reimbursed.
The appointments commence at the AGM in March 2013. The appointments are for 3 year terms with the option of a second term.
Email Pat Sivertsen, Executive Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Trustee role description and application form.
Applications close: November 4th 2012
