icare CEO recruitment underway

The recruitment of icare’s new Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director is underway, with the role publicly advertised and executive search firm Boyden selected to manage the appointment.

Incoming icare Chair John Robertson said the recruitment of icare’s CEO was one of his top priorities coming into the role.

“The Treasurer has given me a clear mandate as incoming Chair of icare to ensure key actions are met to help manage this leadership transition as smoothly as possible for all stakeholders and to ensure icare is delivering on its commitment to support injured workers,” Mr Robertson said. 

“Ensuring we have the right leader at the helm of the organisation at this critical time is essential to driving forward the necessary improvements.” 

icare is seeking a CEO with significant leadership experience in the insurance industry, an appreciation of the public sector governance structures that icare operates within, and a demonstrated track record of delivering customer centric transformation. 

The role is being advertised via the IworkforNSW website as well as in print media nationally, following the departure of icare’s former CEO last month. Interested applicants should email a resume and covering letter to Boyden at anzapply@boyden.com.

Applications close at midnight on 18 October 2020.   

icare’s new CEO and MD is expected to be selected before the end of the year.
