ACH Group

ACH Group is a leading not-for-profit aged care provider in South Australia supporting 20,000 older people to live and age well in residential care and retirement living, and with in-home and community services.  The aged care sector is undergoing considerable change and growth, and ACH Group, formed in 1952, is widely recognised as a progressive and innovative leader with award-winning customer and employee initiatives.  This is a unique opportunity to join ACH Group’s workforce of 1,800 staff and hundreds of volunteers who are dedicated to the organisation’s purpose of supporting older people to live good lives; in a role that makes a difference.

Reporting directly to the Chief Executive and working with an experienced skills based Board, the CFO is an integral part of ACH Group’s executive leadership team.  This is a pivotal role for an innovative, strategic thinking finance and accounting professional to manage a significant balance sheet.

The role will oversee the procurement, finance, and accounting functions of the organisation, ensuring that robust financial due diligence is undertaken, supported by applying a data driven financial perspective to strategic decisions.  The CFO will implement innovative solutions to drive efficiencies across ACH Group in an advisory and consulting capacity.

The responsibilities of this significant Adelaide based CFO role include:

  • proactively contributing to the strategic direction of the organisation as the key financial adviser to the CEO and Board;
  • leading, managing, mentoring and developing the finance, payroll and procurement teams ensuring effective use of technology and driving continuous improvement;
  • maintaining and enhancing important relationships with key internal and external stakeholders;
  • conducting commercial analysis and financial modelling to build strong business cases and support key decisions regarding both bottom line and balance sheet;
  • capturing and utilising reliable data to inform budgeting and forecasting and ensuring sound governance and board reporting.

The successful candidate will be an appropriately qualified senior finance executive with demonstrated capability to lead this function in a large organisation through ongoing reform, growth and increasing competition.  Aged care or human services experience is an advantage as well as experience in property development, however candidates with significant leadership experience from highly comparable regulated domains are also strongly encouraged to apply.

Essential qualities sought include well developed commercial acumen, together with superior communication, negotiation, stakeholder management and leadership capacity and a keen interest in business partnering.  In addition to the necessary qualifications and career experience, ACH Group is seeking a team player who goes above and beyond and lives and breathes its cultural values and purpose of good lives for older people.

An attractive senior executive remuneration package will be negotiated to secure a high calibre candidate.
