Nursing leadership and management opportunity in Timor-Leste (East Timor)
St John of God Health Care (SJGHC) has been operating the capacity building Nursing Development Program in Timor-Leste since 2010, in partnership with the Ministry of Health.
We are now seeking to recruit a Nursing Program Manager to lead a team of capacity building nurses, as well as work directly with the Timorese Nursing Leadership Team at the Hospital Nacional Guido Valadares (HNGV) in Dili. This role will have a direct impact on the way nursing leadership is formed in Timor-Leste.
We are interested in hearing from experienced Nurse Unit Managers or Directors of Nursing, with strong leadership and management qualifications and skills.
Applications must address the selection criteria, which can be found in the position description on the e-recruit website. Applications close Friday 31st October 2014, and deployment to Timor-Leste is expected to be in March 2015. For further information please contact Anthea Ramos, Group Manager International Health at firstname.lastname@example.org
Working and domestic environments you will encounter in Timor-Leste are far removed from those most nurses come to expect in Australia, and candidates must be able to demonstrate good resilience and patience.
Our International Health nurses must be prepared to go the extra distance to ensure support for the development of nursing practices in a sustainable way.
The Nursing Development Program operated by St John of God Health Care is part of a wider commitment to Timor-Leste which includes a longterm Pathology Development Program and primary health care projects in remote communities. Our work in Timor-Leste has been recognised by the Ministry of Health as amongst the most successful by a non-government agency since the country’s independence.
