About North and West Remote Health (NWRH)

Leaders in the delivery of community based mental health, aged care, allied health, wellbeing, disability and outreach services in remote Australia since 1993, North and West Remote Health (NWRH) harnesses the diversity, energy and professionalism of a large team of multidisciplinary health care professionals delivering comprehensive healthcare services in remote and Indigenous Communities across Australia.

Your new career awaits!

NWRH is currently seeking an Endorsed Enrolled Nurse to join our Aged Care Hostel on Mornington Island, on a full-time basis.

Suitable candidates will have the option of working on a four (4) or six (6) weeks on (dependent on the applicant), and one (1) week off rotation, with paid flights in and out of Cairns or Townsville, if preferable.

Reporting to the Facility Manager, you will be responsible for the day to day delivery of quality care, lifestyle and accommodation for NWRH residents and community aged care clients. You will also be required to support the managerial functions in the Facility Manager's absence. 

Responsibilities will include:

  • Providing nursing care to care recipients, in the Residential Aged Care Facility in accordance with the relevant funding contracts and aged care quality frameworks;
  • Ensuring client care, kitchen, cleaning, laundry and maintenance activities are performed efficiently, effectively and in accordance with relevant standards and budget;
  • Taking active involvement in the intake of new residents to the facility, ensuring they and their families understand their rights and responsibilities as well as NWRH’s responsibilities and obligations; and
  • Working in accordance with systems and processes that support accreditation standards for residential and community aged care service delivery; and
  • Supporting quality improvement activities.

Whilst only a relatively small, 15 bed facility, the challenges of being based in a remote area mean that the level of responsibility and volume of work required in this position is similar to that of a large facility. As such, this position would be best suited to someone looking for that type of role.

Why join us?

Whether you are looking for a change of scenery, a new adventure or a chance to give back to the community, this is an opportunity to make a real and valuable contribution, whilst gaining invaluable remote healthcare experience

The successful candidate will receive an attractive salary circa $68,353 plus super, commensurate with skills and experience.

A further range of fantastic benefits will also be provided, to increase your take-home pay including:

  • Accommodation and electricity paid for by NWRH whilst on the Island
  • 5 weeks annual leave;
  • A 4 or 6 week on, 1 week off roster (which combined with annual leave equates to almost 3 months leave per year)
  • Salary sacrificing options up to $15,900; and
  • Opportunities for career progression post probation

This is a rare opportunity to live and work in one of the most unique and untouched locations in all of Australia.
