Seeking a Non-Executive Director for Alluvium Consulting Australia

22.04.2015 - Posted by Rachel England
We are seeking to appoint an independent non-executive director to the board of Alluvium Consulting Australia (Alluvium). The successful candidate will have relevant board and management skills and industry experience to contribute to the success of the business.

Alluvium is niche business, recognised as one of Australia's leading consultancies in the management of water resources, rivers and catchments. We have core skills in waterway management, including water sensitive urban design, integrated water cycle management, environmental water assessments, and waterway design and restoration. We work across a spectrum of projects from policy and planning, through design and implementation, to monitoring and evaluation. We provide consulting services across Australia and internationally through our offices in Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Townsville.

We believe that the application of creative thinking, a commitment to effective engagement, and the adoption of robust science and practical engineering can effectively address the complex and interrelated threats to the natural environment and communities.

Our business is deliberately focussed on attracting, training and retaining highly skilled staff with a passion to work with clients and stakeholders on complex river, catchment and water resource issues. This focus and commitment has resulted in Alluvium being selected in the BRW/BOSS 50 Great Places to Work awards in each of the four years up to 2014.

We anticipate the role of independent non-executive director will be to:
  • contribute to the governance oversight of our business and the ongoing development of effective board processes
  • use industry knowledge and/or a background in strategic planning to contribute to the strategic direction of Alluvium
  • apply an existing profile within the industries we work in, to facilitate the development of relationships and increase opportunities for the business
  • support the Alluvium board and executive in organisational reform with a focus on organisational structure.
