Our Director, Peta-Jane Maynard (PJ) has been an aged care executive recruitment specialist for over 15 years. Her passion for aged care is personal. PJ was raised in a values based family, her mother a Registered Nurse then a Special Education Teacher, and her father dedicated most of his life to the Police Force.
After completing a Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Sydney and while studying for a Masters in Health Science, PJ continued working in the Health Services Industry, assisting others to better themselves and empowering them to do so. With an eagerness to explore and experience business, combined with a science and health background, PJ fell into the world of recruitment, which enabled her to combine these two distinct areas (business and health).
She is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (GAICD). As a non-executive Director of Twilight Aged Care, PJ understands and has intimate knowledge of governance, leadership and operations. PJ knows what it takes for managers and leaders to succeed in aged care and can pin point excellent talent for you. She is well positioned to advise and consult on best fit for your organisation and your team.
