About NWRH

Leaders in the delivery of community based 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.

This dynamic and evolving organisation continues to break new ground in the provision of direct health services and preventative health programs and is a leading advocate for rural and remote health care.

Your new career awaits!

NWRH is currently seeking a Registered Nurse to join our team in Doomadgee as a full-time Facility Manager. The successful applicant will be able to work on a six (6) weeks on, and one (1) week off rotation, with paid flights in and out of Cairns or Townsville, if preferable.

As a Facility Manager, you will be responsible for the day to day operations of the Aged Persons Hostel, including the delivery of quality care, lifestyle and accommodation for NWRH residents and community aged care clients. This is a 10 bed facility with an additional 40 (approximately), home and community care clients.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Providing nursing care to residential and community aged care recipients, in accordance with the Aged Care Act, and the appropriate Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Accreditation Standards;
  • Ensuring adequate staffing through recruitment and rostering activities;
  • Overseeing general operations of the facility including procurement, maintenance and kitchen, cleaning and laundry functions;
  • Fostering a positive workplace culture by means of a supportive and inclusive approach to HR issues;
  • Taking responsibility for maintaining systems and processes that support accreditation standards for the residential aged care service and packaged care; and
  • Promoting a culture of continuous quality improvement by identifying areas for improvement and supporting quality improvement activities.

Whilst only a relatively small 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 role would be best suited to someone looking for that type of role.

About the Benefits

In joining NWRH you will have the opportunity to gain invaluable regional healthcare experience in an environment that offers supervision, mentoring and multidisciplinary diversity.

The successful candidate will receive an excellent salary package circa $104,025 inclusive of a base salary up to $95,000, super, and commensurate with experience

A further range of fantastic benefits will also be provided, including:

  • Relocation Assistance;
  • Accommodation and electricity paid for by NWRH whilst in community;
  • A 6 weeks on, 1 week off roster (which combined with annual leave equates to almost 2 months leave per year);
  • 5 weeks annual leave; and
  • Salary sacrificing options up to $15,900
