We are working with a regional Local Health District in NSW on two new leadership positions within their overall regional finance function. This has come about to due a restructure in a bid to open more leadership opportunities with the LHD and provide a specialisation stream. In this case, the opportunity exists as the Associate Director of Financial Operations. If you are looking to take that next step moving from management to executive leadership roles, this is an excellent opportunity. You will work in a complex, challenging yet also very rewarding sector of healthcare and work at a high level with senior executives and the ministry of health.
The position reports to the Director of Finance and Performance, who in turn reports to the CE for the health district. There is a genuine focus on bringing in people who have the capability to grow into the Director of Finance position in due course. As the AD of Financial Operations this role will focus on the financial accounting, asset management and specific revenue drivers for the LHD. Managing a team of 15 finance staff, the position manages all financial accounting and reporting, technical accounting standard treatment and journaling adjustments for board and ministry reporting. Additionally, you will work closely the external auditor in helping them facilitate and address changes which may arise from the external audit. Naturally, month, quarter and year reporting will be delivered to the respective stakeholders. Being the leader of this function and delivery, working at a strong technical and commercial level is central to the role.
This role is part of a progressive executive leadership team, whom are down to earth and aware that there is always improvement in what they can do. Subsequently the organisation can offer a great place to learn and build your higher-level skills, working collaborative. You will have existing CA qualified accountants in the team to work with and ensure the skills are there to help you succeed. This opportunity has a lot of moving pieces as the LHD has two base hospitals and over 29 health services facilities or locations across the region. This is a great platform to build you skills in a complex and changing environment.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant CA/CPA accountant, with a strong technical understanding of accounting standards, financial reporting best practise, audit preparation and tax accounting. It will possibly suit someone from a chartered accounting firm, who looks after the more complex organisations, or is currently a Manager/Senior Manager of Financial Reporting. In ideal scenario current or recent health experience is sort after, however the background is not limited to this. You may come from a larger regional council or government organisation. Equally it might be a larger corporate where you are looking after the financial and board reporting function. There is a competitive salary and location assistance via salary packaging.
