We are currently seeking interest from prospective board members for the inhousing board. If you would like to register your interest, please complete the expression of interest form.

We are seeking board members with a genuine commitment to inclusion and disability leadership, who bring professional experience in finance, or construction, philanthropy or technology.

Join us in our mission to create a world where people living with disability get a fair go at what life has to offer.

The Julia Farr group comprises 3 entities, working across policy, research, advocacy, capacity-building, housing, and grant making to advance the life chances of people living with disability.

An exciting opportunity exists for you to join one or more of our three boards and their sub-committees, working alongside a passionate and established change-maker CEO and an outstanding team of non-executive directors in Adelaide, South Australia.

The boards are the Julia Farr Association (known as JFA Purple Orange), inhousing, and the Julia Farr MS McLeod Benevolent Fund (JFM Fund).

Diverse candidates with intersectional identities are encouraged to apply including people living with disability, First Nations people, culturally and linguistically diverse people, people who identify as LGBTQIA+, and people who come from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.

If you would like to know more about board vacancies at the Julia Farr group, please contact Jane Arnott, Strategy Leader - Governance and Philanthropy, at janea@juliafarr.org.au or complete an expression of interest form.

Alternatively, if you’re ready to apply, please send us your resumé and a cover letter explaining why you’re interested in a board position, and how you feel you would contribute to the board. Please send these to janea@juliafarr.org.au.
