    Ninti One

    Ninti One is a professional services firm that works collaboratively with government agencies and communities to achieve social and economic development.  Ninti One draws on its long history of working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and has developed the capacity to translate learning from this experience to a range of development contexts.

    Funded through the National Indigenous Australians Agency, SCfC is a flexible initiative that works with 10 Northern Territory communities to identify and implement local, integrated services and activities that create a safe and positive environment for children and families.  Connected Beginnings aims to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in areas of high need (currently across 16 national sites) to be well prepared for school by bringing together early childhood and health services to support Indigenous pregnant women and Indigenous children from birth to school age.

    Offered as a fixed term contract to March 2022 with potential for extension, the Project Coordinator will work closely with and report to the SCfC Program Manager and the Connected Beginnings Program Manager and will be responsible for:

    The South Australian Government is reforming how our landscapes are managed by putting community at the heart of sustainably managing the state’s soil, water, pest plants and animals, and biodiversity.  Central to the Landscape South Australia Act (2019) are eight new Regional Landscape Boards: Alinytjara Wilurara, Eyre Peninsula, Hills and Fleurieu, Kangaroo Island, Limestone Coast, Murraylands & Riverland, Northern & Yorke and South Australian Arid Lands.  These Boards are South Australian Government statutory bodies, which will have greater autonomy and flexibility to respond to local issues and facilitate the sustainable management of landscapes in the regions outside of Adelaide in partnership with land owners, stakeholders and the community.  This framework allows greater autonomy and flexibility to respond to local issues.

    The Alinytjara Wilurara (AW) region covers 26% of South Australia in the remote north-west of the state.  The land and its 340km of coastline are mostly dedicated to conservation and traditional Aboriginal use and occupation.  The region is diverse in flora, fauna and cultural heritage, popular tourist destinations and contains some of the hottest and most remote areas in the state.

    The AW region is inhabited by approximately 4,000 people and is the traditional lands of the Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara Ngaanyatjarra, Mirning, Wirangu, Kokatha, Yalata, Maralinga Tjarutja (Oak Valley) and Roberts First Nations Peoples.  There is no privately owned land in the region with more than half of AW held as dedicated Aboriginal lands owned or in the trust of three key land holding authorities.  Key industries in the region include art, tourism, mining, land management, government services and pastoralism.

    Based in the Adelaide CBD, the General Manager will report to the Landscape Board and will play a key leadership role in supporting the Landscape SA reform and continuous improvement in the management of the Alinytjara Wilurara’s natural resources.  The General Manager will work to deliver the Board’s five-year regional plan, annual business plan, manage budgets and employ and manage staff to deliver practical, on-ground, back-to-basics programs, and ensure the administration of the Landscape South Australia Act (2019).

    Applications are encouraged from suitably experienced professionals displaying outstanding skills in leadership, relationship building, people and change management, stakeholder management, partnering, co-designing projects with stakeholders, strategic thinking, operational delivery, cultural competency and the ability to form strong relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and organisations.  An ability to work with all levels of Government and the NGO sector is critical.  Qualifications in a relevant discipline will be highly regarded.

    CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

    Lighthouse Disability

    For over 30 years, Lighthouse Disability Ltd (formerly named Leveda) has been a leading provider of disability support in South Australia.  Lighthouse is a values based organisation with a long and successful history of service to adults with complex and diverse disabilities.  With just over 200 staff, revenue approaching $35m and a very strong balance sheet, the organisation is poised for future growth and success.  Having almost doubled turnover in the last two years, Lighthouse believes further opportunities exist to expand due to the introduction of the NDIS including possible divestment of disability accommodation services by the State Government.

    Reporting directly to a strategically minded, skills-based and connected Board, the Chief Executive will execute the Lighthouse vision, lead and motivate the highly dedicated staff, ensure effective management and governance across all areas of the operation, seek out opportunities for growth and ensure strong and productive relationships with stakeholders are maintained.

    Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and experienced senior executives with the commercial and political acumen to lead and grow the organisation in an environment of constant change and challenge.  A genuine affinity with key stakeholders is essential as are contemporary leadership skills, sound financial acumen and highly developed communication abilities combined with warmth, empathy, authenticity and good character.  Knowledge of the NDIS environment will be highly regarded but is not essential.  Most important is experience leading and growing a comparably complex service delivery business.

For over 30 years, Lighthouse Disability Ltd (formerly named Leveda) has been a leading provider of disability support in South Australia.  Lighthouse is a values based organisation with a long and successful history of service to adults with complex and diverse disabilities.  With just over 200 staff, revenue approaching $35m and a very strong balance sheet, the organisation is poised for future growth and success.  Having almost doubled turnover in the last two years, Lighthouse believes further opportunities exist to expand due to the introduction of the NDIS including possible divestment of disability accommodation services by the State Government.

Reporting directly to a strategically minded, skills-based and connected Board, the Chief Executive will execute the Lighthouse vision, lead and motivate the highly dedicated staff, ensure effective management and governance across all areas of the operation, seek out opportunities for growth and ensure strong and productive relationships with stakeholders are maintained.

Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and experienced senior executives with the commercial and political acumen to lead and grow the organisation in an environment of constant change and challenge.  A genuine affinity with key stakeholders is essential as are contemporary leadership skills, sound financial acumen and highly developed communication abilities combined with warmth, empathy, authenticity and good character.  Knowledge of the NDIS environment will be highly regarded but is not essential.  Most important is experience leading and growing a comparably complex service delivery business. 

Make an enquiry to explore this career defining and fulfilling role guiding a buoyant entity making a genuine difference to the lives of people with a disability.

Track Record

Since 1993, Hender Consulting has been providing executive search, recruitment and associated services with an unwavering client focus and complete commitment to quality, integrity, authenticity, confidentiality, objectivity, responsiveness, independence and trusted advice. 

The firm now handles clearly more senior executive appointments than any other South Australian business and is widely regarded as the leading provider of executive search and selection in SA. This is underpinned by a significant portfolio of senior appointments. 

For the last decade or more, Hender Consulting has, on average, appointed a CEO or equivalent role every 24 days and two General Manager (C Suite) or Manager roles every week. Please click on the PDFs below for a list of past appointments we have facilitated. 

CEO or equivalent appointments 

General Manager (C Suite) and Manager appointments

Importantly, and as evidence of the satisfaction with the Hender service, virtually 100% of our work is repeat business, via referral or generated by selective tenders. 

We are also regularly re-engaged to recruit for executive positions years later after a successful appointee retires or moves on to a new opportunity. 

Services

Since 1993, Hender Consulting has been providing six core professional services within the human resources domain.

Executive Search

We are regularly engaged to search for key executives and managers locally, nationally and internationally. We invite you to review our Track Record and an extensive list of significant executive searches. 

Advertised Executive Recruitment 

The firm utilises a wide range of high profile print and online advertising mechanisms to attract a competitive field of applicants for key executive and management positions across South Australia. We invite you to review our Track Record for an extensive list of executive appointments. 

Remuneration Benchmarking and Advice 

Many of our clients engage us to provide independent remuneration advice in regard to executive, management and technically specialised positions. Due to our extensive and consistent recruitment activity across most industries, we are able to keep a constant finger on the pulse of remuneration trends in the South Australian marketplace. 

Independent Executive Performance Reviews 

We are regularly engaged to conduct confidential independent executive appraisals for a range of public and private entities. 

Non Executive Board Director Search and Selection 

Due to our extensive professional networks, the firm is regularly engaged to identify and appoint Non Executive Directors for both the commercial and not for profit sectors. 

General People and Culture Advice 

The highly experienced Hender Consultants are regularly engaged to provide formal and informal advice in the areas of human resources strategy, succession, retention, leadership, structure and culture. 

For a confidential discussion or enquiry regarding any of the services above, please call us on +61 8 8100 8888 or email our General Manager – Andrew Reed at andrew.reed@hender.com.au 

At Hender Consulting, we take an ethical approach to recruitment and associated services for our client – the employer. To this end, and due to the inherent conflict of interest that it creates, Hender Consulting does not provide commercial executive mentoring or coaching for candidates but can recommend highly competent providers of such services. We are also not providers of industrial relations legal advice but can refer you to appropriate professionals from our extensive and trusted networks. 

Our People

At Hender Consulting, our consultants and support professionals are carefully chosen based on experience, professionalism, authenticity, integrity, judgement and unwavering client focus. The firm has a remarkable and uncommon record securing and retaining some of the most experienced professionals in the industry and beyond. 

Having the most experienced and stable executive recruitment team in South Australia creates value for the client due to our: 

  • Capacity to understand, scope and deliver complex executive search due to our extensive professional networks and experienced researchers
  • Significant intellectual property regarding executive candidate calibre
  • Understanding of the key industries and demographics affecting the SA economy and labour market
  • Knowledge of current remuneration trends across disciplines and industry settings
  • Experience navigating the complexities, sensitivities, risks and communication strategy required during important executive appointments
  • Extensive experience assessing leadership traits through rigorous assessment methodologies
  • Capacity to conduct effective due diligence on candidates including but not limited to rigorous reference and qualification checking
  • Preparedness to offer objective, independent and well reasoned and researched advice without fear or favour
