The Whiddon Group is a large, well established non-profit provider of leading edge services in residential aged care, community care and independent living, operating across metropolitan, regional and remote New South Wales. Watermark partnered with the Whiddon Group to recruit a Non-Executive Director for their Board

The brief:

To refresh the strength of the existing Board and to add value to the organisation more broadly, The Whiddon Group were particularly interested in attracting a new Non-Executive Director with strong marketing expertise. Other highly desirable characteristics included industry experience within Health and Human Services, as well as previous Board experience; ideally this would be coupled with an investment in corporate governance knowledge through completion of the Australian Institute of Company Directors course. A challenging aspect of the search was to find suitable, passionate individuals with a strong social conscience who were open to this pro-bono position.

Our search utilised Watermark’s extensive database and research networks to source and deliver a high-calibre shortlist of candidates, reflecting the breadth of Watermark Search International’s capacity to reach a talented, experienced and socially aware group of people, with sincere interest in contributing positively to others’ lives, within the not-for-profit sector.

The outcome:

The successful candidate appointed to the Non-Executive Director role fully met the client’s expectations, bringing a high level competency in marketing and business development gained with blue chip corporates, combined with a growing interest in participating at a Board level in not-for-profit enterprises.
