    Applications are welcome from proven senior finance executives ideally with CA/CPA qualifications.  Strategic thinking, contemporary leadership capability, strong financial acumen and highly developed communication, stakeholder relationship building, analytical and negotiation skills are essential.  Other important strengths include role modelling the energy, warmth, empathy, humility, integrity and credibility necessary to be successful in such a role.  Corporate governance experience including interaction with Board and Audit Committees is advantageous, while experience in the financial services sector may be an advantage but is not essential.

    CHAIR

    Maggie Beer Foundation

    MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OLDER AUSTRALIANS

    Maggie Beer established the Foundation in 2014 to improve the food experiences for older Australians, including those living in aged care.  In fellowship with her Board of industry leaders, professors and health advisors, Maggie has made it her personal mission to link the latest research of how the food we eat can impact brain health and general wellbeing, with her innate knowledge of what good food can do for everyone’s emotional wellbeing – a truly nourishing mix so much greater than the sum of its parts.

    Since its inception, the Foundation has been a leader in the quest for a better dining experience in aged care through Maggie’s advocacy, Foundation Masterclasses, the creation of specially developed recipes for the older palate, the creation of a suite of online modules for chefs and cooks in aged care and the leadership of a National Congress on Food in 2021. 

    The next Chair will build on the strong foundations laid down by the inaugural chairs and board directors and steward Maggie Beer Foundation’s next stage to extend and enrich the lives of older Australians by promoting healthy and tasty food.  Key areas of focus for the role of Chair include:

    • extending the profile, fundraising, reach and impact of the Foundation;
    • building powerful partnerships with governments, providers, peak bodies and experts in Australia and internationally;
    • strategically leveraging Maggie Beer’s profile to build support for the Foundation’s work and messaging and developing and promoting the Maggie Beer Foundation brand;
    • advocating for continued better outcomes and creating new opportunities for delivering influence and change;
    • leading an alliance of governments, organisations and individuals to ensure that food remains a priority for aged care following the Royal Commission and the 2021 National Congress on Food, Nutrition and the Dining Experience in Aged Care.

    The appointee will lead a refresh of the Board ready for the next stage of the Foundation’s impact.  Together with high profile, talented and committed colleagues, the Chair will drive the Foundation’s governance by spearheading vision and strategic processes, managing and directing Board processes and ensuring that risks are assessed and managed. 

    Applications are encouraged from leaders with a genuine desire to volunteer their time and capabilities to enhance an already accomplished entity through its next phase.  Experience in for-purpose governance, harnessing the media, networking for purpose and fundraising, creating effective partnerships with government, business and the community and leading board and executive processes will be expected. 

    This is a rare opportunity to lead and grow an exceptional organisation alongside an Australian national icon in her drive for nutrition and good food throughout life. 

    In addition to the Chair opportunity, expressions of interest are also more than welcome from professionals keen to join the Board.

CROWN SOLICITOR

Attorney-General's Department

As the South Australian Government’s legal service, the Crown Solicitor's Office (CSO) provides legal advice to Cabinet, Ministers and government agencies.  With a staff of approximately 200, the CSO represents the Government before courts and tribunals, drafts legal documents, provides conveyancing and other property related services and resolves native title claim issues.

Following the appointment of the previous Crown Solicitor to the Supreme Court, the opportunity has arisen for a contemporary and dynamic legal leader to fill this pivotal role.  Reporting to the Chief Executive of the Attorney-General’s Department, the Crown Solicitor will provide leadership and strategic direction to the CSO driving effective resource management, ongoing reform and business improvement and ensuring high level advice and representation is provided to the Attorney-General and the Government.

Applications are invited from suitably qualified legal practitioners with demonstrated experience in effectively leading, managing, motivating and supporting highly professional teams of legal executives, solicitors and legal support staff.  Expertise in the provision of complex legal advice and legal representation at a senior level is also required.  Legal experience in government is highly desirable but is not essential.  More important is the ability to demonstrate positive leadership, drive change and forge effective working relationships with key stakeholders as well as displaying the high levels of strategic thinking, innovation, collaboration, culture development, integrity, energy and resilience required in such a role. 

This is a truly career defining opportunity for an outstanding legal professional.

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
