  • Work five days per fortnight
  • Autonomous role with strong support
  • Region offering glorious beaches, green hinterland and a vibrant town

You are an empathetic, compassionate and confident nurse with strong skills in advocacy and education. To be effective in the role your communication and ability to provide education will be a skill well-honed in other roles to enable supporting system changes so that provided Health Services are able to meet the needs of carers when they interface with the health system.

Support carers throughout their journey in this self-directed role working closely with Aged Care Services. The focus of the role is to provide resources, education and advocacy to carers which can be caring for someone of any age and ability. With the service providing individual sessions and being involved with the Carer Support Group you will feel comfortable in educating other staff, health professionals and clients about needs and resources available within the HNE Health network and beyond.

With hours negotiable and the opportunity to upskill in this area the role will provide services across the Lower Mid North Coast Sector including Taree, Buladelah, Forster, Tuncurry, Harrington and Wingham.

Taree is nestled in the Manning Valley, a three and half hour drive from Sydney, situated on the Manning River. The river is largely responsible for the recreational activities including fishing, rowing, sailing and power boating as well as a basis for industry with the area being a large producer of oysters. With a population of 20,000 Taree is a popular tourist destination for people that want to get away from it all and enjoy a slower pace of life in beautiful surroundings. The availability of affordable and luxury housing present an entire package for those wishing to relocate to the Lower Mid North Coast.

  • an Australian Citizen, or
  • a permanent resident of Australia, or
  • a New Zealand citizen with a current New Zealand Passport, or
  • a citizen of another country with an appropriate visa that allows you to work in Australia

You can only be offered employment in this role for the duration that your current visa allows you to work in Australia, and you can only be offered ongoing employment if you have a permanent visa that allows you to work in Australia.

An eligibility list will be created for future similar vacancies, both permanent and temporary.
