Non-Executive Director/s
Neami National


Neami is a specialist mental health provider that provides support and hope to Australians experiencing mental health issues. With an annual revenue of approximately $120m and over 1,000 staff, Neami provides services in five states delivering on more than 80 contracts with State Governments, local Health Districts/Hospitals, Primary Health Networks and other funders.

Neami’s Strategic Directions 2020-2023 emphasise a change in direction to more outward facing engagement, advocacy, partnership and thought leadership on sector reform. This is underpinned by increased emphasis on research, monitoring, evaluation and understanding of the impact of services on consumers, carers, the community and the sector more broadly.

Neami is committed to having greater national reach and diverse array of experience on its Board from across all parts of Australia where they have a presence, particularly NSW, NT, and SA. There is a strong focus on increasing the diversity on the Board to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups and other communities that often don’t have a significant voice in the governance of organisations.


These are paid positions with a salary of $20,485pa. Generous salary packaging is also available.
