    CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

    Boandik

    Boandik provides personalised quality care and services to over 760 aged clients throughout the South East of South Australia.  Beginning with one small residential care facility in Mount Gambier in 1956, the organisation has since grown to provide community services throughout the whole of the South East as far as Bordertown, residential services (dementia specific, respite and transition care) based in Mount Gambier, independent living units in both Mount Gambier and Port MacDonnell and provides NDIS services to approved clients.  The organisation aims to promote independence and wellness, provide choice of services, respect the individual and enable dignity for its client base.

    After 23 years of dedicated service, the current CEO, Gillian McGinty, is retiring from the role.  The Board now seeks a proven executive to lead Boandik during a pivotal time of change, growth and opportunity.  Based in Mount Gambier and working closely with the Board and Executive Management Team, this important role will:

    • develop and deliver the strategic vision and plans to operate at the forefront of aged care and associated services; 
    • model Boandik’s values of respect, dignity and choice;
    • lead, motivate and develop the committed staff to deliver high quality care and outcomes in a safe, inclusive and supportive environment;
    • maintain and enhance relationships with diverse public and private stakeholders;
    • ensure the highest level of clinical and business governance.

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

Following the successful tenure and retirement of outgoing incumbent, Tim Jackson, later this year, an opportunity has arisen for a new Chair to lead the highly experienced, skills-based Board of Directors with a particular focus on candidates who have the values, integrity, strategic credibility, commercial acumen, warmth, empathy and authentic affinity with the Lighthouse mission to make a lasting impact. Expressions of interest are most welcome from candidates from a broad range of professional disciplines and industry settings.

Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and proven non-executive directors with demonstrated experience leading transformational developments and advocating for a customer/community facing organisation in an environment of reform and constant change.  GAICD status or preparedness to achieve this will be a strong preference, as will be the capacity to apply the appropriate focus and time to the position.  

Make an enquiry to explore this fulfilling voluntary governance role guiding a buoyant and worthy 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
