Established for 72 years our client, Clifton Community Health Services (CCHS), is a community-owned not-for-profit organisation that operates a modern Medical Centre, Private Hospital, Assisted Living Hostel, Nursing Home, Memory Support Unit and Independent Living Units for the benefit of the Clifton community.
Renowned for the provision of compassionate, high quality care within a relaxed country environment, CCHS is located in the small rural town Clifton, 50km south of Toowoomba and approximately two hours from Brisbane.
CCHS is governed by a board of nine Non-Executive Directors and is now seeking expressions of interest for vacancies resulting from the retirement of a number of long-serving Directors.
While it is expected that you will have an affinity for rural and regional communities, and be passionate about improving the quality of life of residents within this context, CCHS is keen to consider the expertise provided by candidates with experience in a range of professions, including:
· general practice;
· geriatric medicine;
· allied health (ideally psychology, physiotherapy or social work);
· nursing & clinical management;
· residential aged care management;
· home care management;
· quality assurance (including knowledge of relevant accredition frameworks);
· philanthropy & corporate fundraising;
· change management;
· workplace relations;
· legal; &
Your success in one of these challenging and rewarding roles will be underpinned by your ability to contribute strategically to the future of the organisation and to work with the Board to harness the potential of this successful and highly worthwhile organisation, whilst effectively engaging with the local community and discharging your responsibilities at law.
Qualifications and professional accreditation relevant to your profession are required, with governance training, ideally including a Company Directors Course Diploma, and AICD Membership being highly regarded.
Convening either virtually or in person, the Board meets monthly, Board Committees meet quarterly (usually in conjunction with a Board Meeting), Strategy sessions are held once or twice per year, and Directors are also expected to attend other functions from time to time.
While these roles are voluntary, professional development and reasonable other expenses are met by the organisation.
