Our Challenge

With ever increasing demands on the public purse, Tenants Victoria is not immune to the prospect of decreasing funding from governments. The Board has developed an income diversification strategy and implementing this strategy is one of our major goals for 2018. The funds generated will support our charitable works and reduce our reliance on Government.

The New Directors We Seek

Not only will you have a belief in social equity and the importance of a stable home for the education and development of the next generation, but you will have the business experience and commercial acumen to help implement our self-reliance strategy.

Experience in financial management or accounting will be well regarded along with experience in one or more of the following fields:

  • Information Technology, Data Mining, Communications
  • Public Relations, Brand Development, Stakeholder Engagement
  • Fund Raising for Social Enterprises.

Completion of the AICD’s Graduate Diploma course will be viewed favourably.

This is your opportunity to stand out and show leadership in an organisation that is well regarded by government and society more broadly.
