Remote Area Nurse - Midwife /Womens Health - 100223

Job No: MHAC309
Location: Millingimbi, NT

  • We’re one of Australia’s largest providers of Aboriginal healthcare.
  • We’re engaging with health issues at a grass roots community level.
  • We’re seeking Remote Area Registered Nurse who can take pride in the results of our work.

What we stand for 

With eight clinics and growing across East Arnhem Land, we’re providing health care services for over 6,000 Indigenous residents. Our Board of Directors represents communities across the region, ensuring every decision we make helps empower Yolngu people to take control of their lives and direct their own futures.

We’re connected by passion 

We share a passion for the rich history of the Yolngu culture, and a commitment to ensure that the work we’re doing is instrumental in ensuring self-determination for Indigenous peoples. We’re a people place, where going above and beyond is in our nature. We’re not just offering jobs, we’re offering a way to shape Australia’s future. Do you share our passion? 

We need you

Working closely with both our Aboriginal Health Practitioners and Doctors, our Remote Area Nurses are critical to our patient’s success. You’ll be committed to finding the best way to communicate with patients in order to provide great care and follow up with them in sometimes uncertain circumstances.

Based in our Malmaldharra Health Centre you will provide high quality, culturally appropriate and effective Midwifery & Women Health nursing practice and improve the health and well-being of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people at Millingimbi homelands.

Why Miwatj? 

Whether working in remote healthcare is on your bucket list, or something that is tried and tested, we’d love for you to reach out. East Arnhem Land offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of a community where the richness of Yolngu culture is in the air you breathe. But we also know that remote living has its pros and cons. 

A competitive salary of $110,606 - $118,826 per annum (dependent on skills and experience) and a comprehensive range of benefits including accommodation are provided with this full-time position.

How do you know if you’re the right fit? 

In order to deliver on our mission, we know that a collaborative, supportive team is critical. We’re looking for people who are committed to not only growing their capability, but willing to step in and support other team members and patients. Whilst knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture is helpful, what will really see you thrive in our communities is an open mind, willingness to be exposed to culture, and curiosity. Before you reach out and apply, we need you to have: 

  • Current Registration and annual Practicing Certificate as a Registered Nurse with AHPRA.
  • Minimum of 5 years broad nursing / midwifery experience post registration and 3 years working as a remote area nurse with experience working in a Women Health program preferred.
  • Demonstrated knowledge of the principles of Primary Health Care, and program delivery in a Primary Health Care setting.
  • Demonstrated understanding and knowledge of social determinants of health issues affecting Aboriginal people.
  • Demonstrated ability to interact effectively with people from a diverse culture, where English is not their first language.
  • A current manual drivers licence, National Police Check and working with children clearance (Ochre card).
