BGIS to acquire Carillion's facilities management contracts

HardyGroup International now seeks expressions of interest from experienced project managers for one of the largest and most complex health infrastructure transitions in Australia.  The New Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) Program Director will lead the transition and commissioning of health services to a state-of-the-art 800-bed tertiary teaching hospital  with a capital budget of $1.85B AUD set to open in 2016.

HardyGroup International is partnering with South Australia (SA) Health's Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) to recruit to the position of New Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) Program Director.  This is a dynamic role which is critical to the successful transition and commissioning of a state-of-the-art 800 bed public tertiary teaching hospital scheduled to open in 2016.

The new RAH is the single largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by South Australian Government with a capital budget of $1.85 billion.  It will be the State's flagship public hospital and the cornerstone of the reformed SA Health system, delivering services through new models of care and innovative facility design.

We seek an experienced executive who understands Public-Private Partnership and is able to drive complex program management across a variety of streams of activity to be synchronised with  the master works delivery of the program.

Your complex project management and change management abilities are critical.  You will effectively utilise a matrix management approach with key team members, to seamlessly transition services and commission the largest health services build in SA to date.

You will ideally have experience with the major commissioning of a tertiary or quaternary hospital, particularly the process of transitioning services, developing business cases, shifting operational capacity and ensuring policy effectiveness throughout.   Alternatively, you may have experience in sectors other than health where you have led a complex system and have overseen a transition to new infrastructure with new models of care.

You will report to the CEO, CALHN, and work closely with the existing Major Project Office and Central Adelaide Executive Team, managing key internal and external relationships with efficacy and political nouse to ensure team delivery on project milestones.

This is an opportunity for you to be part of one of the largest health service transitions in Australia.  On offer is an executive contract at an attractive rate that will be commensurate with the successful candidate's experience and qualifications.

Adelaide is Australia's fifth largest city with a population of 1.23 million and has ranked in the Economist's top 10 most liveable cities three years in a row (2010, 2011, 2012).  The city hosts a wide variety of festivals and sporting events, and enjoys an excellent food and wine culture.  Additionally there are long beachfronts and picturesque mountain ranges within an hours' drive.  Adelaide has an international airport with direct links to all of Australia's state capitals.

We invite qualified candidates to contact Michael Guerriero or Kevin Hardy today on +61 2 9964 9099 for a confidential discussion of this critical transition role in SA Health.
