Job Description

About the Company

Metro South Health is Australia's first digital health service and the first in Australia to be recognised for excellence in person-centred care by Planetree International. It is also one of Australia’s largest, with an estimated residential population of 1.1 million people or 23 per cent of Queensland's population, an annual operating budget of $2.3 billion and more than 15,000 staff.

About the Role
This is a rare opportunity to lead the dedicated team of professionals at Metro South and lead a world-class, dynamic and growing health service that embraces technology, excellence in health care, teaching, research and empowering its people to be the best in serving the community.
Reporting to a cohesive and engaged Board of Directors, the Chief Executive will be responsible for creating and sustaining an environment that not only delivers outstanding care, but strives for new levels of excellence in clinical research, clinical service delivery and education.
This is an incredible opportunity for a world-class health leader to deliver on the enormous potential that exists within Metro South Health; to innovate to solve complex challenges and to realise success through clarity of vision, unwavering determination and uncommon resilience.
The digitisation of the Health Service provides the successful candidate with unparalleled access to data.  Leveraging this data for strategic resource allocation and the prediction of demand and supply challenges before they occur will be a key measurable for success in this role – and an incredible opportunity to position Metro South Health as a world-leader in the use of technology to improve health outcomes.
This is a highly visible, career-defining opportunity with the capacity to deliver previously unattainable health care to one of the fastest growing, most diverse regions in the country.

About You
You will be a highly experienced Chief Executive, having performed a commensurate role in a similarly large and complex organisation.
You will be an exceptional communicator, adept at both listening and delivering a clear and inspiring narrative. Your extensive expertise will be demonstrated through not only having overseen a very large budget, but utilising it in such a way as to have engendered trust and earned a reputation as a skilled steward of public funds.
You will be a natural, modern leader with an innate understanding of people and how to create and enshrine a performance culture. In addition to possessing outstanding relationship building skills, you will have a track record of brokering successful partnerships and collaborations – with an entrepreneurial flair for identifying opportunities – as well as a reputation for being accessible and approachable, trusted, and able to unite a highly complex, large and diverse workforce behind the vision.
You will also be known for your ability to innovate, and harness the latest technology to drive efficiencies and solutions to resource constraints.
