The Recruitment and Appointment to the Board: a Governance Officers’ Toolkit was developed to assist governance officers in departments who are responsible for supporting Government in appointing directors to public entity boards.
The toolkit is designed to supplement the Government’s Appointment and Remuneration Guidelines for Victorian Government Boards, Statutory Bodies and Advisory Committees.
Each year in Victoria, significant numbers of appointments are made to public entity boards. Recruiting and appointing directors to these boards can be a time consuming, involved and often complicated process.The tips and techniques in this toolkit have been developed to assist in selecting the best person for a board directorship.
This toolkit aims to clarify the processes that should be undertaken when recruiting and appointing directors to public entity boards. It provides a minimum set of guidelines based on good practice recruitment and selection process models and practical guidance on how to go about the recruitment and appointment process.
