Indigenous Portfolio Boards and Committees - Interested Persons Register

Various Part-time

The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet maintains an Interested Persons Register, a database of candidates interested in Ministerial appointment to Indigenous boards and committees in the portfolio.

The Register is used to provide Portfolio Ministers with a selection of highly suitable candidates for consideration as appointment opportunities arise, including the boards below.

Indigenous Portfolio Body Boards

To be considered for inclusion on the Register, you will need to demonstrate strong leadership and management skills, and possess a high standard of professional and personal integrity.

Experience in managing large complex operations and a commitment to organisational governance are essential. A strong commercial background or working with Indigenous community organisations and businesses, as well as previous board experience, will be highly regarded.


People from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to register.
