    The position is full-time commencing in early/mid 2020. The successful applicant will receive a generous salary package, including support and encouragement for the pursuit of further relevant education, four weeks of vacation leave and one week of study leave per annum. Beyond this though, the opportunity exists join an established ICU team in a supportive multi-specialist clinical environment to primarily influence the further evolution of the service with the genuine and active support of hospital management.
