Currently operating a small residential aged care home, providing a number and range of home care packages and 42 self-care units, our business operations will effectively double in size within the next two years.


The position

Having strategically identified a need for clinical governance expertise at the Board level, we are seeking a suitably qualified non-executive Director to join our Board.

This is a voluntary position and will be attractive to someone who has a real commitment to improving the quality of care provided to our elderly clients.

We are seeking a non-executive Director who will provide care and quality governance, capacity and resource utilisation and continuous quality improvement expertise for the care services we deliver.

You will contribute a unique expertise to KOPWA’s governance as a key member of our Board and Care and Quality Committee. Your qualifications and experience will ensure we underpin our services with appropriate governance and frameworks pertaining to care now and into the future, particularly in light of our exciting growth and development strategy.

As a certified clinician (AHPRA Certified Registered Nurse) you will have the following skills and capabilities that will enhance the existing Board skills mix:

  • Working knowledge of clinical governance and care outcomes in health and or aged care service delivery
  • Awareness of the new National Quality Standards Framework within residential aged care
  • Demonstrated skills and experience in clinical governance and management
  • Demonstrated experience in working alongside a variety of stakeholders to enhance standards of care
  • Experience with risk mitigation as it relates to care service delivery in a healthcare setting
  • Awareness and or working knowledge of increased health care service demand due to higher acuity clients presenting in later stages of life. Palliative care and or end of life care expertise will be well regarded
  • Commitment to working with a group of voluntary non-executive directors and our management team
  • Appetite for continued learning and improvement in health / aged care services delivery and a desire to make standards of care better for the elderly


We would really love it if you have an understanding of corporate governance and director’s duties and responsibilities, as well as the ability to think critically and impartially and to make informed decisions and challenge the status quo. You will also have a desire to contribute in an altruistic way to the lives of our clients. No doubt you will have high level interpersonal skills and a constructive and down to earth approach.

Our Board meets bi-monthly, normally on a Monday from 7.30am to 9.00am in Roseville. There are additional Care and Quality Committee meetings that are held quarterly and teleconference meetings where required in between.
