With its head office in Adelaide, 80 dedicated staff and a turnover approaching $20m, HAMB Systems Limited (HAMBS) is an Australian company owned by 22 private health insurance funds across Australia. For over 25 years, the sole objective of the company has been to provide ongoing application software development, technical support and a selection of secure wide area network services, including application hosting, to the member funds.
The Board is comprised of a number of the CEOs of the member funds and now seeks an accomplished governance and ICT professional to play a pivotal independent role in ensuring the future success of the organisation.
Applications are invited from highly credible ICT executives with the capacity to convert technical skill and extensive experience to the benefit of this important member focussed organisation. Bringing an independent and external perspective to the Board table, the successful candidate will also play a pivotal role in ensuring financial sustainability, contributing to the overall corporate vision, advising on trends, risks and threats and proactively supporting a positive culture in line with the mutual ethos of HAMBS. Previous Board experience is essential along with unequivocal and proven capacity to drive ICT strategy. Strong commercial and legal acumen complemented by a keen eye for risk and opportunity will also be highly regarded attributes.
The Organisation values integrity, collaboration, EQ, curiosity, diplomacy, empathy and commercial judgement. Appropriate annual fees will be negotiated with a high calibre non-executive director who can add genuine value to the entity and ultimately and most importantly – the customers.
