Board and Governance Administrator (BB-FF4B0)

Found in: Neuvoo Bulk AU


Our goal to be Australia’s Bank of choice drives us to set the example of how banking should be: progressive, sustainable, shared and trusted. Our Corporate Secretariat team is responsible for a range of administrative, governance, compliance, and support functions (including our joint venture and alliance partners) across the business. Their expertise is in managing the majority of the Group’s board, board committee, subsidiary board and alliance meeting requirements, delivering a service that is second to none!

A permanent full-time opportunity has become available for a Board and Governance Administrator to join the professional Corporate Secretariat team to provide quality, timely, and consistent corporate secretarial support to the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Board and wider Group.

This is a dynamic and varied role where you’ll add value supporting the Company Secretary team and Board, facilitating the smooth functioning of Board and Committee meetings, attending meetings including taking minutes, preparing draft agendas and preparation, distribution, and publication of meeting papers – ensuring all the logistics have been taken care of, and records and documents are meticulously maintained.

You'll support the Board of Directors with travel arrangements and expense claims, as well as monitor and clear the Company Secretary's inbox, responding appropriately to queries on their behalf easily adopting different styles for the various audiences, and recognise that you are privy to sensitive and confidential information. Additionally you’ll get exposure to corporate administration responsibilities such as preparing and lodging procedural ASX announcements, ASIC forms, as all as maintaining corporate registers.

Join a tight knit, collaborative team that are passionately dedicated to providing top tier executive support and advice to the Board. Your strong previous experience in a similar role and in-depth knowledge of Australian corporate governance practices and processes can be combined in a non-hierarchical environment where no two days are the same, and your input is genuinely valued and appreciated.
