This Saturday the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) is hosting a Careers Expo for job seekers who might be interested in a career in health.

The Tweed Valley Careers Expo will showcase roles and employment pathways available across health services in the Tweed Valley region.

Director of Nursing and Midwifery for Northern NSW Local Health District, Katharine Duffy said the Expo was a great chance for people to find out about various roles and opportunities, from a range of services, in the one place.

‘I encourage anyone looking for a new role, or a change of career to come along and learn about the skills needed to join our team, and how to apply for positions within our local health district.

‘Come and connect with our hospitals and health services, and chat with our staff to learn about the different roles and employment pathways on offer.’

The Expo will feature information from Murwillumbah District Hospital, Byron Central Hospital and the new Tweed Valley Hospital, and services such as Allied Health, Aboriginal Health, Mental Health, Support Services, and Nursing and Midwifery, as well as volunteering opportunities and education partners.

Ms Duffy said there is a need for cleaners, administration staff, nurses, doctors and more, to support the NNSWLHD in caring for our communities in Northern NSW.

A diverse and inclusive industry

‘Health is an incredibly diverse and inclusive industry, with so much flexibility and opportunity. You can work part time or full time, casual or permanent, and enjoy job security, flexible working conditions and amazing colleagues.’

‘We know our health workforce cares deeply about the work they do, and we care deeply about supporting them, investing in training and career progression, innovation and research.’

The Northern NSW Local Health District Careers Expo is on Saturday from 11am to 3pm, at Mantra on Salt Beach, Gunnamatta Avenue, Kingscliff.

Those looking for a new career are also encouraged to register their interest on the Northern NSW Local Health District website.
