Non-Executive Directors (Voluntary)

It's Not A Compliment
  • Term: 3 Years
  • Hours: 4-8 hours per month 
  • Reports to: The Board

About It’s Not A Compliment:

It’s Not A Compliment (INAC) grew out of a simple idea back in October 2019 – making the everyday better for vulnerable communities. What started as a brainstorming session for a fellowship task back in November 2019, soon turned into something more personal when INAC’s co-founders, realised how common street harassment was for many in their circles. Regardless of their gender, sexuality or racial identity – anyone that could in some way be coded as ‘other’ had a story to share about a time a stranger had made them feel uncomfortable or unsafe in a public space. And they were determined to share them.


As we are currently restructuring as a new entity and entering into a new phase as a grant-funded organisation, we are seeking Board Directors with specific expertise to offer leadership and governance at this critical juncture for INAC.

All Board Directors must have, or be working towards gaining, an understanding of the governance principles and obligations of a charity. 

Board director portfolios we are currently recruiting for include:

  • Legal (Secretary)
  • Finance (Treasurer)
  • Campaigning and Advocacy
  • Fundraising, Marketing and Communications
  • HR and People & Culture
  • Policy, Compliance and Risk
  • Stakeholder engagement

Please reach out to us if you have an area of expertise that is not listed that you believe may add value to the INAC board at this time.

We strongly believe that having a board that reflects the diversity of the community and the team leads to better decision making. This is why we strongly encourage applications from traditionally marginalised communities, including First Nation’s people, people from multicultural, migrant and refugee backgrounds and members of the LGBTIQA+ communities.

  1. Demonstrate a strong commitment to the mission and values of INAC
