The Crawford Fund is a not-for-profit organisation that focuses on maintaining Australian support for, and involvement in, international agricultural research for development.
We raise awareness of its benefits to Australia and developing countries, commission policy development on food security issues, and arrange specialist training activities for developing country agricultural scientists.
We are looking to grow our base, network and activities to provide even more impact and benefit.
As the current Chief Executive has announced his intention to retire, the Crawford Fund is seeking a permanent part-time Chief Executive Officer.
The Chief Executive runs a small, dedicated team of staff and manages a State and Territory network of committees, each with a coordinator and eminent volunteers who manage our State-based training activities.
The CEO is responsible:
- to the Board of Directors for the daily running of the organisation;
- for overseeing its broad range of public awareness, fundraising, policy and training activities;
- for liaising with stakeholders; and
- for enhancing the understanding of and support for international agricultural research.
