Director of Nursing Perioperative & Surgical (H20_3563)

Albury Wodonga Health (AWH) was established on 1 July 2009 and is Australia’s only cross border health service. While classified as a Victorian regional health service, it is co-funded under an intergovernmental agreement between the respective Governments of New South Wales and Victoria.

Employing close to 2500 staff with an additional 300 volunteers, the combined team provides a broad range of hospital, primary and community based services from 20 sites to a growing population of 250,000 living in the north east of Victoria and southern parts of New South Wales.

Set in a spectacular natural landscape, with the twin cities of Albury and Wodonga nestled along the Murray River, the district enjoys strong population growth and a vibrant culture, making it a great place to live and work. It is conveniently located between Sydney and Melbourne with a 3-hour drive to Melbourne and 5-hour drive to Sydney or a quick flight from Albury Airport.

In response to the region’s growing population encouragingly AWH has recently received investment from Government that will enable it to further develop its emergency, mental health, maternity, and obstetrics services. In 2020, the service undertook a thorough organisational redesign with the overarching objective of improving the patient and carer experience by placing the patient at the centre of everything the service does.

The organisational redesign will enable the service to be equipped for future growth. As part of the organisational redesign several leaderships positions have been created, one of which is the Director of Nursing Perioperative & Surgical. The Director of Nursing Perioperative & Surgical will provide leadership in the provision, review and management of coordinated high quality clinical services for the Perioperative and Surgical Division. The Director of Nursing will lead the establishment and maintenance of an effective and responsive nursing workforce. The key responsibilities include leadership, continuous development, innovation, workforce management and planning, and financial management.

AWH are seeking applications from strong nursing leaders who are excited about the opportunity to lead and embed organisational redesign and change, in a fast-paced complex clinical environment. To succeed in this role, you will need to demonstrate your ability to partner with key stakeholders and lead an effective and responsive workforce. Experience in clinical operations managing multiple program streams, is highly desirable.
