Board Member

The Lower Hutt Women’s Centre Board of Trustees (the Board) is looking for new members to join the governance team!

The Lower Hutt Women’s Centre’s vision is to support, encourage, educate and provide a safe space for all women to reach their full potential. The Board plays a key role in realising this vision by guiding the strategic direction of the Lower Hutt Women’s Centre.

The Board is looking for new members and would love to hear from anyone that is passionate about supporting and empowering women in local communities, working in the spirit of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and community-led approaches.

Applicants that are local to Lower Hutt and have skills in the areas of governance, finance and accounting, health and safety, and/or strategy development preferred but not essential.

Board meetings take place every third Monday of the month for 2.5 – 3 hours. Meetings are held in person at the Lower Hutt Women’s Centre (and online as appropriate). The Board also holds other meetings as needed.

How to apply: Please email with your CV and a description about what you could bring to the Board. We look forward to hearing from you!
