EXPERIENCED mental health nurses and midwives are urgently required in Sydney and other areas of New South Wales as their health board launches a new recruitment drive for 70 Irish nurses.
Recruitment agency ICE Group are co-ordinating the campaign in partnership with New South Wales Health who are facing a shortage of registered nurses in public hospitals.
Attractive packages are on offer for successful Cork candidates with lucrative salaries and opportunities for real career advancement. Nurses there enjoy some of the best pay and employment conditions in Australia. The package also includes visa sponsorship for one to four years or longer.
"Australia's state-funded healthcare service is very similar to the HSE which makes it easy for Irish nurses to adapt quickly," said Margaret Cox, director of ICE Group. "There's also a big community of Irish nurses in New South Wales so getting used to the new lifestyle takes very little adjustment."
ICE Group provides full support with applications and paperwork, and assistance is also available on arrival in Australia. Interviews will take place in Dublin on Friday, 7 December, with positions commencing in 2013.
"Irish nurses' qualifications and experience are highly regarded in Australia," said Susan Pearce, Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer of NSW. "Irish nurses have a long history with us and are always welcome here."
