Contract Trustees

SkyCity Community Trusts Auckland, Hamilton and Queenstown

Job Description

Since they were established, SkyCity’s three Community Trusts have proudly distributed over NZ$57 million to more than 4,760 community groups and organisations, large and small, in Auckland, Hamilton and Queenstown.

“SkyCity is committed to maintaining the highest level of corporate social responsibility objectives and practices, with priority given to minimising the impacts associated with problem gambling as an area of primary focus.”

We are committed to aligning the SkyCity Community Trusts with SkyCity’s Sustainability objectives and Corporate Social Responsibility practices. Ensuring good philanthropic and governance practice is a priority along with the implementation of a new funding framework and a focus on innovation.

Are you passionate about social justice, do you have a focus on equity and empowering community led change? If so, SkyCity is excited to invite representatives from the New Zealand communities in which we operate to be a part of our journey to support and maximise social impact and enable our communities to thrive.

Expressions of interest are now open for Trustees to join us in one of our three locations (Auckland, Hamilton, Queenstown). This is a great opportunity to help us deliver to the Trusts’ priorities and further align SkyCity’s community investment and development strategy with a focus on youth development.

The Board is responsible for the distribution of SkyCity’s Community Trusts’ resources, setting strategy, and monitoring and evaluating grant making impact. The Board meets three to four times a year for half days. In February 2020 there will be a full day of professional development before funding rounds begin.

In selecting Trustees, we will consider the following priorities:

– Geography – residing in or having strong involvement in target communities;
– Mana-whenua/iwi – involvement in and understanding of Te Ao Māori perspectives and the wider Māori community;
– Philanthropic/not-for-profit/charitable trust governance experience;
– Social/health/education/justice sector experience;
– Ethnic diversity – working within marginalised ethnic communities;
– Youth – ensuring that there is representation with a youth perspective

If you want to help us make a difference, submit your expression of interest online today.
