What You Will Be Doing

We have an exciting leadership opportunity in our Surgical Services Suite. The Surgical Services Suite finds itself in a unique position with the growth and redevelopment of its Associate Nurse Unit Manager (ANUM) structure presenting an exciting opportunity for experienced Surgical Scrub/Scout nurses.

Moving toward a specialist model has provided an opportunity in the following Surgical Specialities for the employment of an ANUM:

• Orthopaedics

The successful applicants will become an integral part of the Surgery and Operating Suite Management team, providing leadership and guidance in relation to their speciality’s services. They will demonstrate high level perioperative nursing experience, effective leadership skills, management experience, and possess the ability to influence the environment for their speciality’s services through improvements to systems and processes within an integrated model of operating.

A component of the ANUM role is an expectation to undertake a share of floor management shifts and thus an understanding of the overall perioperative environment is also required.
What You Need

We anticipate you will have:
• Current registration with AHPRA
• Post graduate certificate and recent experience in perioperative nursing
• Proven effective assessment and problem solving skills.
• Effective organisational, leadership and time management skills.
