UniMed (Union Medical Benefits Society) is one of the top four group health insurers in New Zealand, and its employer schemes are the preferred work health insurance for a number of New Zealand’s largest and most successful businesses. Established in Christchurch in 1979 as a not-for-profit mutual society, UniMed has an AM Best “A” (Excellent) Financial Strength credit rating and its member-focused approach has resulted in it being previously rated #1 group health insurer for customer satisfaction.

To ensure it positions itself strongly for the future, UniMed is seeking a new Director to join its existing board of 5 and contribute specific knowledge, experience and advice in the area of digital strategy and the ever-changing technology landscape. Applicants will be able to demonstrate how they have added tangible benefit to a business through the sound development of a digital strategy and the successful implementation of the latest digital initiatives, including but not limited to the areas of e-commerce, sales and marketing and the most appropriate utilisation of modern technology to enhance the customer experience. Applicants will also possess a broad supplementary / executive skillset and a values-based and visionary approach.
