Join the CGA Team: Appointed Board Director Vacancy


Commonwealth Games Australia (CGA) completed a Governance review (Board Effectiveness Survey) in 2018 and a new Constitution was approved by members that came into effect at the AGM on 17 November 2018.

CGA became a company limited by guarantee and a new Board (a President plus six (6) Directors) was elected by its members. The new Board ‘may’ appoint two additional Directors in accordance with the new Constitution.  Applications were called for in October 2018 for these two appointed Director positions, however no appointments were made at the time by the new Board due to an impending strategic plan review to be undertaken during the first quarter of 2019.

This strategic plan review is now almost complete and as such, the CGA Nominations & Remuneration Committee has reconsidered the skills required in order to address skill gaps within the new Board whilst strengthening expertise in specific areas to deliver CGA’s reviewed strategic priorities.

The Committee has recommended to the Board that high level skills and experience relating to Digital Marketing and Branding be sought to assist with the strategic oversight of projects in this area which will become a more prominent focus in the updated CGA 2019-2026 Strategic Plan.

One Appointed Director is being sought at this time.

To be considered for this Director position, your success at a strategic and tactical level will be evident and you will have an extensive network within the industry.

A strong understanding of Governance, the fiduciary duties of Company Directorships and Finance will also be highly regarded.

Please refer to the attached Position Description and Application Form for further information and for details of the application process. Applications close on the 19th May 2019.
