The Northern Territory Government (NTG) boards and committees play an important role in good governance by providing independent and expert governance or advice. They provide an effective link between government and the community.

To register your interest in serving on an NTG board, visit NTG Careers in Government. Using the search parameters, search the keyword ‘board’, complete the registration form and upload your CV and other required documents, including visa documents.

Registrations are uploaded onto an EOI Boards Register which is accessible by all NTG agencies.

As vacancies arise, NTG officers can search for potential nominees on the EOI Board Register. Submitting your EOI registration form does not guarantee appointment to a board, but it does indicate your agreement for your CV to be accessible by NTG agencies.
