About the Team
We consider ourselves to be very fortunate here at the Queen Mary Maternity Unit. Not only do we get to care for fabulous women and families from all across our diverse region, we also get to work alongside kind, compassionate, dedicated midwives and other health professionals to provide a safe and positive birthing experience.
Each year we birth around 1,800 babies and work closely with the midwifery and medical schools to give the kind of care our patients deserve.
About the Role – what’s in it for me?
Within the Core Midwifery environment no two days will be the same and you’ll be involved in the full scope of midwifery practice during your time here. We have a women-centered approach to our care and you will be making a real difference to the patient experience. This core midwife role would suit a Midwife who is team-focused and who enjoys getting involved in a variety of tasks to ensure the very best care is provided at all times. If the hours per week don’t suit you, please still get in touch as we may be able to have some flexibility for the right candidate.
To succeed in this role you will need to:
- Be a Registered Midwife
- Hold a current annual practicing certificate
- Have excellent communication and the ability to easily build rapport with people from all walks of life
- Be passionate about midwifery and have a real desire to provide the best care possible
If you think you’d like working in a team where integrity, honesty and a great sense of humour count, we’d love to hear from you!
