About the role
A legacy of innovation in developing the Corporation to a position of strength, as a team, business and compliance in reporting and fiscal discipline, all of which align to the regions specific cultural and community needs and aspirations.
As the new CEO, you’ll be based in the Sale Head office, reporting to the Board, responsible for the further development of the business, through effective strategic and operational excellence and hands-on team leadership. You’ll work closely with the Board on shaping strategy and supporting its governance function, providing detailed meaningful reporting, taking the lead in setting the bar high for the Corporation.
Key to success will be a proactive approach to the further development of the business, its systems and processes. Being hands on, you will keep across sector changes and developments, providing clear, well thought through and business savvy advice to underpin direction and growth, appropriate to the community and vision. It follows that this role is the face of the business in the community, as such, you will need to be visible and accessible, combined with being a well presented and capable communicator, able to deliver specific messages effectively, and appropriately, to a number of different levels and audiences.
Obviously you’ll be responsible for the day to day running of the Corporation in all areas, ensuring the team is equipped and engaged to meet the needs of a growing and changing business, without compromising positive patient, client and community outcomes. Importantly, you will lead the continual capability improvement of the staff through development programs, training and recruitment across all sites.
Effectively you will be the “eyes and ears” of the organisation, across everything that is going on, looking for better ways of delivering the required outcomes.
The background I am seeking is a successful Executive, General Manager, CEO or Senior Manager in a similar community based corporation, smaller commercially focussed health services business, or Public Health sector. It is important, you have a good level of understanding of Aboriginal culture, and related health services environment. As the current business model is built on a range of Government funding, it is highly desirable for experience in the public health sector, and a clear understanding of the relevant funding models, as well as the application and negotiation process to maximise positive outcomes.
It is expected you will be tertiary qualified in a Health or Business discipline and gone on to post graduate studies of possibly Master of Public Health or MBA.
In finishing what sets you apart is your ability to engage, your energy and vision, strong priority management, and the fact that you deliver, whilst always setting the right business and cultural example. In other words you’re an accomplished individual and you’re ready for a new challenge.
