  • On the job training provided with help available from our previous Secretary while you settle into the role.
  • Regular governance professional development available throughout 2020 via Volunteering Northland Governance Community Bites.

Specific requirements
  • Excellent computer/typing skills communication skills and an eye for detail
  • A shared passion for kaitiakitanga and restoring our beautiful forest to its former glory
  • Governance experience a bonus but we are equally keen to take on someone looking to gain experience
