NIHRACS in consultation with the Commonwealth Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communication (DITRDC) as the health service funder, are seeking applications from highly experienced and qualified corporate service leaders capable of leading transformational change across NIHRACS corporate service functions. You will form part of an executive team, responsible for the delivery of safe, quality and patient centred healthcare.

Norfolk Island lies in the South Pacific Ocean, 1500 kilometres from the eastern Australian coast. It is about two hours flying time from Brisbane and two and a half hours from Sydney, the nearest major cities.

Norfolk Island is a quiet paradise, often overlooked yet unforgettable once found. The breathtaking scenery, unique culture and history dating back to the 18th century will provide you with plenty to do in your downtime. Located roughly halfway between Australia and New Zealand you will need to approach this opportunity with eyes wide open and know you will be immersing yourself in a community and culture that is friendly, resilient and self-reliant.

A place where waving to everyone you pass is mandatory, where cows have right of way, and everyone knows everyone else. It is the only place in the world where the telephone book lists people under their nicknames, such as Drill, Bing, Diddles and Spud. No wonder the locals reckon it is "Da Bass Side Orn Earth" (the best place on Earth).

If you have the qualifications, skills and resilience to take on this challenge, we look forward to receiving your applications. NIHRACS is offering a 12-month contract with the option for 1+1 year renewal at NIHRACS discretion.

We invite qualified candidates to contact Lynette Boerth on +61 (0)431 293 861 or via email lboerth@hardygroupintl.com for a confidential discussion.
