Bayside Christian College offers a seamless education from Kindy to Year 12. We are dedicated to fulfilling the need for holistic (K-12) education in the Bible- informed Christ-centred tradition of servant leadership, in a way that encourages, enables, and supports our students to be the best possible version of themselves. Our aspiration lies in uncovering the treasures of wisdom and knowledge in a community of life-long learning and we are truly committed to inspiring Christian character in all we do.

The College operates under the Queensland Baptists Education Company, which is a company limited by guarantee, registered with ASIC and the ACNC, and owned by the Baptist Union of Queensland.

As a key part of our commitment to good governance, the Queensland Baptists Education Company seeks a highly motivated and qualified Company Secretary to join the Board.

About the Role:

As Company Secretary, you will play a pivotal role in ensuring the smooth running and legal compliance of the Company. You will be responsible for providing guidance to the Board of Directors on corporate governance matters, maintaining accurate and complete records, ensuring adherence to all relevant legislation and regulations, administering all aspects of Board meetings, collating responses to Government agencies as needed, and ensuring the College Executives have the required access to Government Agencies and the portals they need to do their jobs.

This is a strategic position with a significant impact on the future success of the College, and while governance responsibilities exist for all Companies, regardless of sector, a detailed and specific knowledge of the education sector, and in particular, as it relates to funding and grants.

The successful applicant must be a communicant member of a recognised Christian Church and committed to following Christ in all aspects of their life. The successful applicant will recognise this opportunity as one in which they can serve the Lord, in His school, and for His Glory. The successful applicant must be in agreement with the College’s Statement of Faith and be a Witness in all things to our shared beliefs. The preferred applicant must also be endorsed and supported by Queensland Baptists.

The role is a part-time role averaging 4 hours per week, and while much of the role can be done remotely, there is a requirement to attend Board meetings at the College, and other occasions as needed.

This is truly an opportunity to support the direction of a truly Christian school, to help in the strengthening of Christian values, and to aid in changing lives and thereby grow the Kingdom. Through management and coordination of Board processes, the successful applicant will aid the Executive in advocating for Christian schooling and ensuring compliance with legislation.
