Women’s Program at Monash Health

Monash Women’s maternity service is part of Monash Health, and provides health care across south eastern Melbourne and into west Gippsland.  We are the largest maternity provider in Victoria, providing care to over 10,000 women each year across three hospitals: Monash Medical Centre, Dandenong and Casey.

We’ve recently received new Department of Health funding, enabling us to appoint several motivated nursing professionals to ensure that our Women’s Program is appropriately resourced through our part-time Pool, Bank and Agency team members. The roles will support our Program’s operations seven days a week, with shifts from 6:00am to 2:30pm or from 2:00pm to 10:30pm, working to a maximum of 40 hours a week. 

The roles will be appointed on a fixed term basis for six months.

About the role

In these important roles, you’ll provide a key point of contact for midwives and nurses who may be interested in working with Monash Women’s. You’ll be closely involved in recruiting into short term and medium term positions for Grade 2 Midwives, Registered Nurses and Enrolled Nurses and in allocating their shifts within the Women’s Program.

Working with a range of internal and external stakeholders, you’ll build an intimate knowledge of our workforce needs through attending meetings and establishing and building relationships across Monash Women’s.  You’ll work collaboratively to ensure our database remains current and to coordinate the movement of our available team members to cover unplanned absences across the Service.
