About The Hobart Clinic:

The Hobart Clinic is Australia’s only, not-for-profit private mental health facility.  We are about to embark on a journey of transformation, providing best practice treatment options, participating in research and overhauling our facilities, systems and processes.  We are currently a 27 bed facility, situated on 7 acres on Hobart's picturesque Eastern Shore.  Just a short commute to the centre of Hobart, we are able to offer a tranquil environment to aid recovery of our patients.  

Being a not-for-profit organisation, we are proud to invest all revenue generated through the provision of our services into the improvement of outcomes for both our inpatients and outpatients.  This includes improvement of our facilities, investment in leading edge treatments and development of new inpatient and day programs. 

Outcomes of our patients are our number one priority and our people are empowered to deliver the best possible care while our patients are accessing our services.  We are committed to promoting hope, wellbeing and autonomy in recovery.


About the Role:

Our amazing nurses work closely in a small multi-disciplinary team to provide quality patient centred care to our inpatients, who mostly suffer from common, recurrent conditions.  Our patient ratios are 1:8 to ensure that patient outcomes are always the highest priority.  Our facility is voluntary and our patients are primarily admitted with support from private health funds and have a genuine desire to manage their conditions.  The role reports directly to the Director of Nursing, with day to day work direction and support taken from the Clinical Nurse Consultant.


Our Conditions of Employment

  • Base wage rates between $32.74 and $43.83 per hour
  • 2.35% increases due in October of 2021 and 2022
  • Generous salary packaging to $15,900 pa
  • Potential sponsorship for postgraduate studies including study leave
  • Paid time to complete mandatory training
  • Heavily subsidised meals
  • Opportunity for role rotation and development into higher level positions
  • Free parking


About You:

You are an experienced mental health nurse with a passion for what you do.  You will thrive in a small multi-disciplined team environment and be confident in developing individual care plans with the patient and where applicable, their support people.  You are confident in implementing comprehensive, technical nursing procedures and ensuring compliance to The Hobart Clinic’s policies and the broader healthcare standards framework within which we operate.


Relocation Support:

We recognise that there are challenges with relocating to take up a new opportunity. 

If this role and our patient centred organisation sounds like the one for you, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can support you to relocate to Hobart, even with the travel restrictions at this very challenging time.   

Don’t let the thought of relocation stop you, let us help you!
