Harness Racing NSW – appointment of member
Expressions of interest are invited for consideration of appointment as a member of Harness Racing NSW (HRNSW).
The Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, the Hon Kevin Anderson MP, has established a selection process to fill an upcoming vacancy in the membership of HRNSW.
HRNSW has the statutory functions of controlling, supervising and regulating the State’s harness racing industry as well as initiating, developing and implementing policies conducive to the promotion, strategic development and welfare of the industry and its participants.
The Harness Racing Act 2009 (Act) states that it is the duty of each member of HRNSW to act in the public interest and in the interests of the harness racing industry as a whole in the State.
The Act also requires that an appointee must have experience in a senior administrative role or experience at a senior level in one or more of the fields of business, finance, law, marketing, technology, commerce, regulatory administration or regulatory enforcement.
Expressions of interest are particularly welcome from candidates who possess experience across a range of fields and have an appreciation of the issues affecting different industry sectors, including country harness racing.
An appointed Selection Panel will consider expressions of interest based on merit, taking into account a candidate’s abilities, qualifications, experience and personal qualities relevant to the performance of the duties of membership of HRNSW.
Competitive candidates will be required to complete a comprehensive probity assessment to be eligible for appointment, and should also familiarise themselves with the requirements of the HRNSW Board Code of Conduct.
Closing date for expressions of interest is Sunday 31 October 2021
