Needed: Specialist Organisational Angels
We are seeking General Members with strong organisational management skills and specialist skills in any of the following areas:
… to help bring a message of HOPE, GRACE, and JOY. We are also seeking ‘understudies’ for Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. This involves attending meetings and observing/learning from the person in the role so that you may take over if they are unavailable. The understudy role would be perfect for someone younger looking to build their professional experience.
All Committee of Management members are involved on a pro bono basis.

What We Do
Connecting : Supporting : Educating
We connect with and support women, men and transgender people transitioning out of the sex industry, including those who are trafficked. We also connect and help sex buyers and porn viewers overcome their habits through education. We believe in a Nordic Model legislative approach to the prostitution system.
10 hours per month (includes Committee of Management preparation, research, learning/education, committee and meeting time).
Committee of Management meetings are held 4-5 times a year. These take place on weekends in Melbourne CBD, Victoria (or 20km max from this area) and lasts for 3-4 hours, including lunch. It is possible to have you on the Committee of Management even if you reside interstate; you will need to pay for your own travel to meetings. Video conferencing is also possible at times.
Serving on a Committee of Management is an investment in volunteering for public benevolence purposes. Our specialist organisational angels will ideally serve as long as they feel led to. Attendance at AGMs in November each year is compulsory.
You will be a person of outstanding personal integrity with a passion for good governance, social justice and the rights of safety and healing for prostituted people.
You will have a good understanding that Pink Cross is bound by government regulations regarding charitable organisations.
Any Committee of Management member must have an understanding of Pink Cross as a rather small and young organisation, volunteer-driven and seeking to grow in its work and capacity.
These qualities will be paired with a strong Christian belief in redemption from pornography viewing habits and educated compassion for prostituted people. Also advisable is an understanding of trauma, violence and radical feminist theories (‘radical’ as in a form of feminism seeking to understand the root of oppression).
In your professional life you may be outstanding in your field of expertise, but called to make a difference in a dark place, where few go and show the care and love of Jesus to those enslaved by this lifestyle.
You will be strongly encouraged to assist with the recruitment process to take over your role on the occasion that you resign. This must be done in writing for archival purposes. In all circumstances in person communication with your President is preferred prior to any decision being made.
Thank you for your interest in our organisation. Pink Cross would love to have you join our Committee!
