Helping Hand

Helping Hand is recognised as one of the most progressive aged care service providers in Australia, offering home care services, retirement living and residential care homes to over 7,000 clients in metropolitan and regional South Australia.  Its 1,500 skilled and valued employees have driven the organisation’s enviable reputation for providing quality and innovative services that maintain people’s well being, choice and independence.

Following the retirement of long serving CEO Ian Hardy, the organisation seeks an exceptional executive to lead Helping Hand during this exciting time of growth and opportunity.  Working closely with the Board and Executive Management Team, this important role will have responsibility for:

  • developing and delivering the strategic vision and plans to maintain the organisation at the forefront of aged care services; 
  • developing and delivering innovative services and initiatives aligned to contemporary consumer needs;
  • leading, managing and developing the committed and passionate staff to deliver high quality person-centred care and outcomes;
  • maintaining and enhancing relationships with diverse stakeholders including government entities, peak bodies, service partners and community groups.

The successful candidate will be an appropriately qualified senior executive with demonstrated capability to lead an organisation through ongoing reform, growth and increasing competition.  Aged care sector experience is an advantage but candidates with leadership experience from comparably regulated and complex sectors will also be considered.  Strategic thinking, contemporary leadership, strong financial acumen and highly developed communication and negotiation skills are essential, as is the warmth, empathy, integrity and credibility necessary to lead Helping Hand through its next phase of growth.

This is a rare opportunity to lead a well established, stable and highly regarded service provider with a bright future.
