Since 1950, Life Care has worked to create communities where people embrace life and “Live Every Day”. Its vision is to be a premier provider of services and accommodation for older people. Life Care views clinical governance and the safety and wellbeing of its clients as a paramount priority. An opportunity has emerged to chair the Risk Management Committee of the Board.
Working closely with the Chair of Life Care, Board and Executive Team, the successful candidate will demonstrate:
- a sound understanding of risk management frameworks and standards and the operations and business principles of a comparable human services business;
- the capacity to anticipate, identify and mitigate both strategic and operational risks;
- a strong grasp of clinical governance principles developed within aged care, disability, health, medical research or a comparable domain;
- the ability to further develop, model and champion a culture of risk awareness and management that permeates the whole organisation.
Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified professionals with demonstrated experience leading and influencing clinical services and standards within a highly regulated environment during periods of transformation. High levels of clinical, commercial and political acumen, complemented by exceptional leadership, communication, negotiation and stakeholder management capacity are all essential qualities sought, as are the warmth, empathy, good humour, integrity, instinct, curiosity, courage and credibility necessary to ensure best practice in this discipline. Propositions to chair the Committee alone or to join Life Care as a full Board Member will both be considered. An appropriate fee will be negotiated accordingly.
This is a significant and pivotal time for a suitably qualified individual to join a critical sub-committee of the Board and add genuine value to this worthy and respected South Australian entity to continue to make a true difference in the community.
