Position Description

Independent External Member of the Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee (ARIC)

Central Coast Council (Council) is seeking Expressions of Interest from a suitably qualified and experienced person to be appointed as an independent external member of Council’s Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee (the Committee) for an initial period of three (3) years.

The Committee currently comprises three Independent External Members and two Councillors (or an Administrator during the period of Administration) and meets at least five times per year at the Wyong Council office or remotely. This is an advisory committee to Council providing independent assurance, oversight and assistance to Council in the areas of risk, control, improvements, governance, financial reporting and performance. The Committee currently has members with skills and experience in accounting and financial management. Council is seeking to broaden to other key areas such as risk management and corporate improvement.

Members chosen to serve on the Committee should exhibit an independence of mind in their deliberations and not act as a representative of a particular area of the community or Council and be astute to avoid conflicts of interest. A standard fee inclusive of travel, preparation and all other costs associated with attending the meetings will be paid for each meeting attended.
