Hi All, Is anyone aware of what the equivalent roles are in Aus for Sister, Senior Sister, Matron? Are the roles/responsibilities broadly comparable or does it work a bit differently? Has anyone moved from the UK into one of these sorts of roles in Australia? Or is there generally an expectation that you would find a job as a nurse first, then work your way up? I would be interested in anyone's experience of either stepping down and working their way back up or moving directly into a more senior role, and how they found the transition. We're planning on visiting Brisbane/SC/GC in May and were hoping to visit a couple of hospitals, with a view to meeting someone to discuss what it's like working at the hospital and what sort of vacancies they currently have. Planning on contacting HR and seeing if this is feasible/practical. Has anyone else done this? In terms of searching for available roles, how do people generally go about this? Contact hospitals directly, searching online, applying through agencies? Did anyone managed to secure a role prior to moving out? I'm asking on behalf of my wife, but I'm very interested to hear how it works too, as I've done a fair amount of searching and it doesn't seem entirely clear. Apologies, lots of questions, any info/experiences greatly appreciated! Regards BFB
