About this Role:

Medacs Healthcare are seeking experienced Mental Health Registered Nurses to help support the Managed Isolation Facilities across Auckland.

The successful candidate will be available for a full-time roster or for a minimum of 6-8 weeks and the shift patterns will be a mixture of AM, PM and Night shifts. There will be some flexibility to suit your availability. Our Client is seeking Mental Health Nurses who will initially be based in the CBD head offices where you will be completing telephone consultations across the Managed Isolation facilities. Once the initial consultations have been completed, you will then be utilised across the various Managed Isolation Facilities across Auckland. Due to the possibility of visiting numerous locations, a full driver's licence and own vehicle will be required. The client will however discuss the required logistics with the suitable candidate during the interview process and supply you with further information around this. The successful candidate will form part of the dedicated MIF workforce and will therefore not be able to work for any other clients during their employment with MIF. This means that the specific role would only be suitable for candidates with full time availability. Any potential candidates who might work for MIF will be expected to have had their full COVID-19 vaccinations for their own and patient's safety, or willing to have the vaccination completed prior to starting.
