About the organisation
Established in 1864, Prahran Market is an iconic community asset owned by The City of Stonnington (Council). It is governed by an independent Board of Directors who are appointed by Council to lead the Prahran Market Pty Ltd (PMPL), a Company Limited by Guarantee. The Market, well-known as a premium food destination, also serves to meet the needs of a diverse population.
About the role
Non-executive Directors are appointed to the PMPL Board to independently ensure that the decisions regarding the Market are made in the overall best interests of the community. The Board is responsible for the governance, management and strategic direction for the PMPL and for oversighting the General Manager and the PMPL staff in delivering accountable corporate performance. The Directors, including the Chair, will be appointed based on a range of skills and attributes to facilitate a broadly skilled and effective Board.
With a history of working collaboratively on skills-based governance Boards or similar, you offer a range of career and life experience, including business development, small to medium enterprise, retail marketing, events finance and placemaking. You are known for your creative approach, balanced judgement, influential communications and your ability to listen effectively. Well credentialed, your commerciality is underpinned by constructive behaviors and high integrity. Enthused by the possibilities for a community owned asset, you are strategic and detail minded, ensuring confidence in your advice and decisions. You are mindful of always adhering to the requirements of the ASIC and all legislative and regulatory obligations that apply to the Board and the PMPL.
Please note, applicants with a direct or indirect commercial association with the Market are ineligible for appointment. Applicants should refrain from canvassing City of Stonnington Councillors or Officers at any stage throughout the recruitment process. Doing so will immediately terminate your eligibility.
