Burnie Works is a collective impact initiative contributing to positive change in the areas of education, employment, justice, child, youth and families, and wellbeing. It is place-based work that has emerged from issues and opportunities identified in the pataway / Burnie community and enables action with a large cast of stakeholders through working groups and community projects. These stakeholders include government and non-government representatives, local industry, palawa and community members.
Burnie Works Ltd is the organisation which supports and facilitates this community wide work.
Today, Burnie Works Ltd is governed by a dedicated Board of Directors, comprises three main program areas with seventeen staff and an annual budget of over $2.5 million, and is contributing locally, nationally and internationally to the knowledge and practice of place-based collaboration and systems change.
Burnie Works is seeking to recruit new Directors. The Board is seeking nominations from individuals who are interested in contributing to the next phase of the Burnie Works journey and supporting social impact in the Burnie region. In particular, the Board is seeking individuals who have skills in the following areas:

- Community members with a good understanding of the challenges faced by people living in Burnie.
Directors are appointed for a three-year term. The position is voluntary and there is no remuneration for Directors. Meetings are held monthly, and generally last for around 2 hours.
