- Drive Transformative Change
- Empower Consumers
- Build Confidence & Trust in Aged Care
The role of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission is to protect and enhance the safety, health, well-being and quality of life of people receiving aged care. The Commission is the national regulator of aged care services, and the primary point of contact for consumers and providers in relation to quality and safety. It promotes high quality care and services to safeguard everyone who is receiving Australian Government funded aged care.
The Assistant Commissioner, Sector Capability, is a newly created role, reporting to the Commissioner and responsible for implementing the ACQSC’s stronger focus on sector capability enhancement as part of the Government’s agenda to drive transformative change and improve aged care quality for senior Australians. Key early priorities include embedding a sector-wide education program to drive cultural change and promoting provider capability to effectively implement revised Aged Care Quality Standards. Based on your thorough understanding of the aged care sector you will influence and enable change and improved performance at the level of individual approved providers, cohorts of providers, and across the whole aged care sector. You will also be a key decision maker on organisational performance, particularly in the area of sector capability, including the sector capability lift program, sector education, internal and external communication, and stakeholder engagement. As a senior member of the ACQSC’s Executive Leadership Group, you will work closely with colleagues across the Commission to provide strong leadership and to shape the future direction and priorities of the organisation.
To be a strong contender, you will need to have outstanding leadership, influencing and stakeholder skills. In addition to your deep knowledge and understanding of best practice governance, and quality and safety in the aged care sector you will bring experience at executive management level in aged care, or equivalent. You will have a strong understanding of change management; the ability to proactively develop productive working relationships; excellent communication and negotiation skills; and the capacity to act decisively and with integrity. You will work collaboratively across the Commission and the aged care sector, building relationships based on trust and credibility.
