Central Coast Local Health District (the District) is calling on health workers to join its workforce in a bid to significantly bolster its workforce in response to COVID-19.
A range of casual positions are being advertised for nurses, doctors, allied health professionals, pharmacists and mental health workers.
In addition, the District will be seeking patient support and environmental services staff (porters and cleaners); switchboard operators, administrative staff, as well as people with logistics and warehouse experience.
District Chief Executive Dr Andrew Montague said the recruitment campaign was being launched this week as the District upscales its preparedness for the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Jobs are being advertised calling for people with the capacity to work on a casual basis and there may also be the opportunity for short-term, temporary contracts,” Dr Montague said.
“This boost to our workforce will ease pressure on the existing workforce and enhance our capacity – ensuring we can continue to deliver high-quality care for the local community.
Positions will be filled in response to demand over the coming weeks and months.
“We are pleased to be able to offer work opportunities to people on the Central Coast and we would like to thank the community in advance for their support at this crucial time,” Dr Montague said.
