Not-for-profit organisation BaptistCare NSW & ACT is searching for a new CIO after George Lymbers left the organisation this month.
A BaptistCare spokesperson said Lymbers had left to pursue other interests. The CIO had been in the role for over three years. Lymbers declined to be interviewed on his current plans.
According to the job advertisement on Seek, the CIO will provide strategic and operational direction to the IT unit to meet the organisation's technology objectives and the successful delivery of organisation-wide,hardware, systems, communications and business applications that support and enable the business.
“This position is an opportunity for a CIO to lead the organisation with inspirational leadership that thrives on a challenge, is innovative in their approach and is an outstanding influencer of new ideas,” the ad states.
The CIO will be responsible for providing business-oriented technology advice to contribute to the future direction, expansion and development of BaptistCare’s strategic goals, the ad states.
The new CIO will be charged with supporting the executive committee and developing a new IT strategy which takes into account the BaptistCare strategic plan and the current ICT environment, both internally and externally.
The CIO will also need to maintain capital and operational budgets and support business units and managers to plan appropriately for the costs of their information technology needs.
