North West Hospital and Health Service (NWHHS)

Unique locations, friendly communities
Regional, rural and remote $$$ incentives

Covering a region of approx. 300,000 km2 the NWHHS delivers effective, high quality, and accessible public hospital and healthcare services to the residents of the Outback communities within North Western Queensland and the Gulf of Carpentaria.

As an employer we focus on positive health outcomes for the people of our region and embrace innovative ways to achieve this and support our staff to flourish in their careers.

If you are finding the urban healthcare environment a little uninspiring, you will likely find substantial satisfaction in the challenge of a diverse casemix and meaningful community engagement on offer when working at regional, rural or remote facilities.

The benefits

Our HHS values professionalism, leadership capability, excellence and resilience in our staff. To attract top tier candidates we offer generous remuneration packages and employment benefits that include staff accommodation, regional/rural/remote $$$ incentives, salary sacrificing options, 17.5% recreational leave loading, up to 12.5% employer superannuation contribution, shift allowances, professional development assistance, flexible working arrangements, access to corporate discounts, and employee wellness and assistance programs.

The role

This role leads and evaluates the implementation of the NWHHS’ Infection Control Management Plan in collaboration with committees, organisational leads, the Director of the Healthcare Standards Unit and the Executive Leadership team.

Provide specialised infection prevention and control clinical expertise, at an advanced nursing practice level, to all NWHHS employees assisting to meet identified person-centred healthcare outcomes and improving efficiency through the implementation of best practice.

Travel may be required to other facilities and so a C Class motor vehicle licence is required. Mandatory requirements are a relevant tertiary degree qualification and appropriate registration/licences. Pre-employment screening, including criminal history checks and Vaccine-Preventable Diseases (VPD) risk role compliance, will be conducted for the successful candidate.

The location

Once a raw frontier town built in the heart of North West Queensland around the vast mineral resources, Mount Isa has grown into a thriving industrial and commercial centre renowned for its friendly and welcoming nature.

Affectionately known as the ‘oasis of the outback,’ Mount Isa represents over 50 nationalities which give the city a unique cosmopolitan flavour. People enjoy living in this modern community, with restaurants, excellent health care, shopping, churches, clubs, service clubs and social activities. You will love the yearly carnival of festivities and celebrations including the Mount Isa Rodeo.

The Traditional Owners of the area are the Kalkadoon people.

Mount Isa is a great place to live and work!
