Senior Manager, Regional Programs (Wide Bay)

Join a diverse team of dedicated people at Country to Coast, QLD (CCQ) and be a part of an exciting new future. With a bold vision to improve local health outcomes, the CCQ team seeks an innovative manager to lead the local primary health team.

CCQ delivers the primary health network (PHN) program for the Central Queensland, Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast region on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health. CCQ has an ambitious agenda to design and deliver better primary health services for the people in their region. Achieving this will require CCQ as a commissioning organisation to not only focus on primary health service provision but also on other health determinants which support communities to live their best lives.

The Senior Manager will lead the local primary health team to foster, develop and maintain effective working relationships with primary health care providers, Hospital & Health Services, community organisations and local health care professionals.

The role will work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders to progress opportunities for reform and drive initiatives that improve health outcomes in the region.

· An attractive remuneration package, including salary packaging.
· Location : Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Bundaberg or surrounding rural towns.
· Full-time, permanent role.

CCQ’s diverse region covers 161,108 km2 from Sunshine Coast to Rockhampton and west to Emerald. The population in the region is just under 1M people with around 68% living regionally or remotely and more than 28% living in the most disadvantaged quintile. CCQ collaborates with the community to provide exceptional primary healthcare services to reduce health inequalities for the region. CCQ has seven key priorities for health improvement: mental health, alcohol and other drugs, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, population health, health workforce, digital health and older person’s health.

The Wide Bay is a stunning location to live in with beautiful beaches and surrounding bushland for getting out into nature, it is also home to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Island K’gari (formerly Fraser Island) and the Southern Great Barrier Reef.

The Wide Bay is a beautiful place to live, along with a stunning coastline and bushland, it has a wonderful agricultural history providing fresh food including avocados, macadamias, and fresh vegetables. It offers a relaxed and family friendly environment to live and work. Our larger towns like Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Maryborough have great local health and education facilities while still offering small town charm. There is something for everyone in the Wide Bay.
