Board position Executive Advisor Board Member

InsideOUT Kōaro –  Wellington City, Wellington

Job Description

We currently have one voluntary Executive Advisor board role vacant.

InsideOUT Kōaro is currently seeking to diversify its board and strengthen our commitment to making sure folks from different cultures, religions, backgrounds, and identities are represented across our organisation under our obligations to Te Tiriti o Waitangi. We welcome applications from all folks who match our application requirements but will be prioritising applicants from Māori, Pasifika, or migrant communities and backgrounds.

The Board of Trustees of InsideOUT Kōaro takes care of the big picture planning – overseeing our vision, setting our strategy, making governance-based decisions, receiving reports on projects, contributing to financial planning, making decisions around employment, and more.

InsideOUT Kōaro operates within a ‘for youth, by youth’ framework, and as such is composed of Youth Trustees aged between 18-27 filling the majority of the board positions, with four Executive Advisor positions aged 28 and older. Our Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer are all youth members. InsideOUT holds space for a minimum of three tangata whenua positions on the board at all times.

Our four Executive Advisors provide guidance and knowledge to the Youth Trustees and the Managing Director. As well as the normal duties of Board members (attending meetings, making strategic and financial decisions, employing our staff) Executive Advisors act as tuākana to the youth trustees and provide the skill sets and experience that someone under the age of 28 may not have yet. Our Executive Advisors have often had previous experience governing organisations, and may bring skills like human resources, legal training, financial experience, and governance experience to the board table. A key role for Executive Advisors is to foster the youth-focused kaupapa of InsideOUT Kōaro by prioritising youth voices and decision-making.
Board roles are voluntary and generally entail 10-15 hours of contribution per month (including attending monthly meetings).

Our new Executive Advisor must have:
an understanding of the experiences of rainbow young people in Aotearoa New Zealand
experience working on a team, committee or rōpū, particularly in a governance role

Other skills that would be helpful for our Board (optional) are:
experience in strategic planning
human resources and/or people management
financial management and budgeting
experience with fundraising, sponsorship and grants

How to Apply

E-mail a cover letter/expression of interest with some information about yourself, why you are interested in the role and what skills/experience you can bring, and a CV to our Chairperson: [email protected]

InsideOUT is an inclusive organisation and we value diversity. Applications will be considered regardless of ethnicity, religion, sex, gender, sexuality, physical or mental ability.
