Non-Member Director Position

Non-executive Director With over 2,000 members, the Australian & New Zealand College of Paramedicine (ANZCP) is a not-for-profit member organisation supporting paramedics and student paramedics.

With its mission of “Advancing paramedicine through professional development, education and industry leadership”, ANZCP’s primary objects are to:

  • enhance the paramedic profession through education and research
  • develop and implement innovative learning solutions and opportunities for our members
  • enhance member experience, engagement and relationships; and
  • increase the awareness of and the influence of the College

Due to a current Director role falling vacant, we are now seeking applications from suitably skilled and committed individuals who can bring a range of skills, energy and a contemporary mindset to complement that of our current directors.

While the role is Volunteer (unpaid), reasonable travel and other expenses in relation to performing the role will be met by the College.

More information on the history of ANZCP, past Annual Reports can be found at https://www.anzcp.org.au/about-anzcp/


Board Composition and Meetings

ANZCP has a skills-based Board comprised of six elected Directors – three College member Directors and three non-member Directors on staggered three year terms. The Board may appoint up to a further two Directors on twelve-month terms.

The Board meets approximately 8/9 times per year, with up to four face-to-face full day meetings, usually held in Sydney on Saturdays. Depending on the individual skill set, directors may also be expected to participate in sub-committees of the Board.

The expected time commitment is 15 to 20 days in total per annum, including attendance at meetings, preparation for meetings, involvement with Board committees and some other activities.


Our Current Vacancy

One Non-member Director position. The successful candidate cannot be a College member and will come from outside the paramedic profession, to meet the skill requirements of the College. The term for this Director position is three years.

To compliment current Board’s skill mix, we are particularly interested in applicants able to demonstrate both skills and a proven track record of meaningful outcomes in relation to:

  • strategy development and successful implementation;
  • relevant, successful commercial experience;
  • financial management; and
  • innovation in service development, ideally in a member services context.

Financial literacy is a must and previous Board experience would be an advantage.

Prior qualifications from a recognised Board governance education provider, while not essential, would be highly regarded.
