Admin Staff Wanted for HSE Recruitment Call

HSENationwideFull-timePart-time

*DETAILS ON HOW TO APPLY CAN BE FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE HEALTH MINISTER SIMON Harris has said the HSE is looking to hire non-medical professionals through its Call for Ireland recruitment drive and new hires will be paid. Speaking on RTÉ’s Sean O’Rourke programme, Harris said as of yesterday afternoon as 24,000 had signed up to the call, and the numbers have continued to rise overnight. As the Irish health service gears up to deal with the expected substantial rise in cases of Covid-19 across the country, the minister launched a massive recruitment drive for doctors, nurses and other healthcare staff. The HSE also needs the help of non-clinical workers, said the minister. These people will be paid and will either be given permanent roles in the health service or three-month contracts. “We need more than just clinical skills. So we’re also asking people who might have admin skills, who might be able to help with contact tracing to come forward as well,” he said, adding that people can apply online and someone will be in touch. “There is a role for everybody. In fact, there may even be some roles that people will be able to do remotely. And remember people are going to get sick of things that aren’t the coronavirus during this period of time. We’re going to need people working in primary care, we may well need people checking in remotely on some of our older citizens that are more vulnerable people and help provide them with advice over the phone. Workers will be paid When asked whether these people would be paid for their work, he said: “They’d be paid. We’re looking to hire people, and actually in many cases we’ll be offering people full-time permanent jobs, because you know when it comes to roles like doctors and nurses we need more. We’ll be offering people contracts of at least three-months duration. And on top of that, of course, there’d be many thousands volunteering, but no, we’re in the business of hiring. We’re open for business, and the only constraint will be the availability of people, and not finances.” Harris said he has been overwhelmed by the response of medical professionals who currently don’t work in the Irish health system signing up to help. “Over 1,000 nurses yesterday said, ‘I want to help, I want to come back’, and a lot of these people are people who perhaps haven’t been in clinical practice for a few years, they might be people who retired,” he said, stating that doctors are also re-registering.  Job application details: Thank you for your interest in supporting our health service during the Covid- 19 pandemic.

COVID19: 24,000 people respond to HSE's call for help in 24 hours

HSENationwideFull-timePart-time

*DETAILS ON HOW TO APPLY CAN BE FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE Yesterday,  the health service launched  a major recruitment drive to help deal with the pandemic . All healthcare professionals who are not registered with the health service are being urged to be "on call for Ireland". In a tweet this afternoon, Minister Harris said the response so far had been an "amazing national effort" Earlier, the Medical Council here asked any available doctors to re-join the Medical Register as part of the country's COVID-19 response. They said any doctors re-registering will have all registration fees waived, while the process is being fast-tracked. President of the Medical Council, Dr Rita Doyle, said: “I am calling on my colleagues, be they recently retired, working in areas outside of clinical practise or working or studying abroad to assist with the national response to COVID-19. Thank you for your interest in supporting our health service during the Covid- 19 pandemic. COVID-19 or coronavirus is here and every one of us is taking action to reduce the impact it has on our families and communities. "From working in our hospitals, to out of hours services or triaging remotely over the phone and many more. Now is the time to step forward.” She added that she had "never been more proud of the medical profession and our entire health service than I am now". - We’re washing our hands, we’re staying at home, we’re thinking of those who are most vulnerable.
