With its head office in Adelaide, Better Medical is one of Australia’s largest general practice platforms with more than 1,000 people providing services across 75+ sites in South Australia, Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania. The company has a vision of creating a best-in-class environment for doctors and other health professionals to deliver high quality primary health care to their patients. With backing from a highly regarded and established mid-market private equity investor, UK-based firm Livingbridge, the business is poised to deliver on an exciting, ambitious, organic and acquisitive growth plan which will see the business increase to even greater scale.
Working closely with the CEO and CFO, and as a key member of the executive team, this broad, autonomous, newly created position will provide expert and strategic legal advice, interpretation, representation and assistance on all matters affecting the business including M&A activity, business transactions and contracts, strategic alliances, intellectual property, financial services, privacy and employment while also ensuring legal compliance with statutory and contractual obligations and limiting risk exposure.
This position will suit a highly capable, adaptable and suitably qualified legal professional who can demonstrate transferable and diverse experience either within a legal firm or in a similar inhouse legal role. Experience in a medical or health related environment and/or experience working with or for a private equity would be an advantage but is not essential. More important will be well developed commercial, financial and political acumen, stakeholder influence and collaboration, vision, innovation, ethics and integrity.
This is a rare Adelaide based executive opportunity to join a rapidly expanding medical business making a significant and positive impact on the way primary health care is delivered nationwide.
