Job Description:

An exciting opportunity presents itself for YOU to join the talented team of health professionals and support staff within the newly created 24/7 Hospital in the Home North service.

Hospital in The Home’s sole purpose is to provide exceptional hospital level health care and ongoing support to the residents of Northern Tasmania to negate the need for hospitalisation in our mainstream facility and enable patients to remain in their own home and community under the watchful/vigilant eye of a dedicated health team.

Our exciting new service has recently launched, and we are able to recruit to multiple permanent, full time/part/time and relief positions within this critical service. We currently have a diverse mixture of key positions available, ranging from Medical Staff Specialists, Senior Medical Registrars, Nurse Unit Managers, Associate Nurse Unit Managers, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Allied Health professionals (incorporating Senior Social Workers, Senior Physiotherapists and Senior Occupational Therapists) to a dedicated full time Program Support Officer.

We are small enough in Tasmania for you to make a real difference every day. Yet collectively we are big enough for you to feel part of something incredibly important, where you can belong and be surrounded by diversity, innovation and friendships.

Here in the north of the state, you’ll be spoilt enough to be able to immerse yourself into our unique culture and world-renowned wilderness, pristine beaches and National Parks and experience our award-winning fresh local produce and wines – all right on your doorstep and as an added bonus, you won’t have to sit in traffic for an hour to arrive at your workplace. We’ll encourage you to bring your outstanding clinical and world knowledge to contribute to making our team a special alliance providing outstanding, compassionate and meaningful health care to our residents in Launceston and local surrounds.

If you think that this sounds like the ideal time to relocate to a truly special location, then we encourage you to take the leap today and submit your application.
