Greyhound Racing NSW appointment of directors

Expressions of interest are invited from persons wishing to be considered for appointment as a director of the Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) Board.

The Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, the Hon Kevin Anderson MP, has established a selection process to appoint directors to the GRNSW Board.

The Greyhound Racing Act 2017 (the Act) provides that GRNSW’s principal objectives are to be a commercially viable entity, to exhibit a sense of social responsibility by having regard to the welfare of greyhounds and to promote greyhound racing in NSW as a competitive and sustainable industry with a high level of public trust.

The selection panel appointed to undertake the selection process will be looking for people with the skills, experience and knowledge commensurate with the functions performed by GRNSW directors.

These include setting strategic direction, liaising with stakeholders, ensuring compliance with statutory requirements, managing risk and monitoring organisational performance.

The Panel’s recommendations to the Minister on suitable candidates will be merit-based and have regard to ensuring the GRNSW Board has an appropriate and diverse mix of skills, knowledge and experience to best support its principal functions and objects.

Candidates should have regard to Part 3 and Schedule 2 of the Act, which set out requirements for GRNSW directors, including that directors act in the public interest and in the interests of the greyhound racing industry as a whole in the State.

Individuals with greyhound industry or broader racing industry experience are encouraged to apply.

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 GRNSW Board Code of Conduct.

Closing date for expressions of interest is Sunday 2 August 2020.

Expressions of interest: via email to racing.admin@racing.nsw.gov.au with the subject as “Greyhound Racing NSW Board Appointments”.
