All interim executive roles are critical to the organisations we deal with, especially that of the Director of Nursing/Clinical Services. Naturally it is a position which is central to leading and guiding the largest employee numbers in a hospital, be it a large high acuity hospital through to a day surgery.
Both environments require past and present experience in understanding workforce management, clinical best practise, patient care and strategic input as part of the executive team.
The interim DON opportunities we have arise can be from anywhere in Australia and provide a great opportunity to diversify your experience from large metro hospitals to regional health networks. This allows people not only experience different parts of Australia, though also build knowledge in different communities and from one context to the other.
Such contracts typically range in length anywhere from 1 month to 12 month periods with flexibility by agreement to shorten or lengthen and as often as not leading to permanent placements.
