Volunteer Opportunities

Non-executive Directors

Life Saving Victoria Limited (LSV) is seeking two independent Non-executive Directors for appointment to its Board of Directors.

LSV is the peak water safety agency in Victoria. It was established in 2002 as an initiative of the Royal Life Saving Society Australia Victoria Branch (RLSSAV, est. 1904) and Surf Life Saving Victoria (SLSV, est. 1947). LSV’s mission is to prevent aquatic related death and injury in all Victorian communities. Its vision is that all Victorians will learn water safety, swimming and resuscitation, and be provided with safe aquatic environments and venues. LSV has a diverse stakeholder base and complex and wide-ranging operations. It is a recognised emergency management organisation, with strong connections to State government. LSV’s annual turnover is in excess of $15 million.

The LSV Board may comprise up to 11 members – the non-executive President, three independent Non-executive Directors and seven Non-executive Directors elected by the LSV Councils. All roles are voluntary. Due to forthcoming retirements and Director transition planning, two independent Non-executive Directors are sought.

Candidates should have sound commercial experience, an interest in the life saving community and a preparedness to commit to the underlying principles of LSV. Previous directorship experience is preferred but not essential. One appointee must have strong financial and risk experience. One appointee must have specific skills and experience in the aquatic industry, education and / or external training industry (eg an understanding of, and background in, the RTO industry). These requirements are not mutually exclusive.

Appointments will be for an initial term of up to two years (with potential for re-appointment for up to two further terms). The LSV Board meets approximately nine times per year, including two longer strategy meetings. Meetings are usually held on Tuesday evenings, with the strategy meetings held on Saturdays. The successful candidates may also be appointed to the Board’s Finance Risk & Audit Committee and / or the Governance Committee. Committee meetings reflect the Board schedule.

For further information, please contact Tom Mollenkopf (President) or Nigel Taylor (CEO) on 03 9676 6947  or via email frances.evans@lsv.com.au.

Please submit expressions of interest, including a CV, via email to: frances.evans@lsv.com.au.

Applications close 2 October 2017.
