Call for Directors

Hort Innovation is seeking applications for three Non-Executive Director positions

Hort Innovation has opened applications for three upcoming Director vacancies on the company’s Board, with the search process open until Monday 6 July 2020.

If you are interested in applying, please refer to the Director Applicant Information Pack here and submit your application to Rimfire Resources online at

Here’s what you need to know...

Why are we seeking applications?

The Hort Innovation Constitution calls for three of its nine sitting Directors to retire from office at the company’s annual general meeting (AGM) in 2020.

The three positions will be filled by one Director candidate nominated by voting members at the AGM, to be held in November, with a further two appointed by the remaining Board members immediately following the meeting. Retiring Directors are eligible to reapply for nomination/appointment.

How are we recruiting?

Hort Innovation has engaged Rimfire Resources, an agribusiness search and recruitment company, to assist in sourcing candidates and managing the selection process. Advertisements have gone out in national print and online publications, and a targeted search process is also underway.

What happens next?

When the application period closes, applications will be provided to the Hort Innovation Director Nomination Committee. The four-person Committee is made up of a representative from the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment; a levy payer representative; an independent eminent member; and a current Director of the Hort Innovation Board.

The Director Nomination Committee will meet to determine a shortlist of candidates from the application pool, for interviewing during August 2020.

The final Director candidates will be announced ahead of the November AGM.
