Creative New Zealand is seeking to appoint a Supplier who has the requisite skills and knowledge to design and deliver a new governance recruitment and training initiative. The initiative is aimed at a minimum of three new board members who will be mentored and guided on good governance practice. It will also develop the skills of board members across at least three of our investment portfolio of 80 clients.
We will accept proposals from a group of Suppliers provided a lead contact is identified who will be responsible for managing and reporting on the initiative.
The initiative will grow the pool of available arts governors by targeting individuals with high potential. We are looking to recruit and develop new Board members for arts organisations to ensure a high quality, diversified governing body and a resilient arts sector.
The Supplier will work in conjunction with Creative New Zealand to develop and deliver On Board the Arts Governance recruitment and training initiative as part of Creative New Zealand’s capability building programme in the 2018-19 financial year.
The initiative has two broad components:
1. Recruitment, training and induction for new governors of arts organisations
2. Match-making and training for boards of the arts organisations receiving the new governors
Creative New Zealand will oversee the initiative and provide coordination at a national level.
Creative New Zealand is looking for a credible Supplier who has the capability, experience and capacity to deliver the On Board the Arts Governance recruitment and training initiative for selected new board members and New Zealand arts organisations. The Supplier needs to have a good track record of working successfully in governance in an arts environment, expert knowledge of board management, governance, strategies related to diversity and inclusion and helping organisations to remain relevant to the communities they are seeking to serve. The appointed Supplier will have strong coaching, mentoring, facilitation and leadership skills to be able to work with a range of roles within organisations, including senior managers, board chairs and board members as well as highly talented leaders and ‘high flyers’ not yet in a board role. The proposal must demonstrate value for money.
