Engaging a workforce over 2,500 and with a turnover circa $170m, Resthaven Incorporated is recognised as a leader in the rapidly growing aged and community services sector in South Australia. Resthaven has more than 21 sites across the Adelaide metropolitan and regional South Australian area and is highly respected for the provision of responsive quality services to older people and their carers.
Working closely with the Chair, Board and Executive Team, the successful candidate will demonstrate:
- a sound understanding of risk management frameworks, quality standards, 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 senior leaders with demonstrated experience governing, leading and influencing clinical services and standards within a highly regulated environment during periods of transformation. Specific relevant experience in the aged care sector (residential services or home care) will be a distinct advantage. Of most importance will be relevant leadership experience in a service delivery environment of a clinical nature.
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. A nominal Board Member fee applies.
This is a significant and pivotal time for a suitably qualified individual to join the Board and add genuine value to this worthy and respected South Australian entity as it continues to make a true difference in the community.
