The Position

In March this year, a number of legislative changes came into effect to modernise Victoria’s WorkCover scheme. These changes will deliver a more contemporary and sustainable scheme to make sure it continues to support Victorian workers in the future. The Return to Work Victoria business unit has been established to develop and deliver early intervention and support for workers to return to work. There are four new executive functions established bringing together existing Divisions. The functions are; Delivery Operations, Partners & Providers, Enablement and Performance & Operational Strategy with a total staff cohort of around 400 professionals.

The Return to Work Victoria Business Unit Leadership Team will focus on redesigning how people, processes and technology interact to improve the experience and outcomes of injured workers and ultimately a sustainable scheme for the benefit of all Victorians.

Reporting to the Executive Director of the business unit, the Head of Partners & Providers will oversee relationships with key stakeholders within the broader workers compensation and workplace health areas. This position will shape the strategy that underpins the relationships with agents, medical providers and employers with a focus on achieving better performance outcomes. The role will focus on transforming partnerships to implement financially efficient injured worker outcomes.

As a senior leader you will contribute to the cultural and organisational change across the business unit. You will provide leadership to a multidisciplinary team of advisors, service providers and technical specialists. In addition, you will hold accountability across; Agent Performance and Relationships, Premium and Self Insurance and Health & Recovery. The role will enhance inter-division collaboration to deliver contemporary and innovative workplace injury insurance solutions.

The successful candidate will have substantial experience at an executive level in insurance, claims, health or business management. As an expert leader, you will have proven experience partnering with health-related organisations to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.

With strong commercial acumen, you will bring demonstrated experience in financial analysis, negotiations and fee strategies. You will be a champion for innovation and continuous improvement. You will be the kind of leader who is self-directed, shows foresight, has strategic capability and drives change initiatives collaboratively.
