50 new HSE jobs for EU funded projects

The CAWT Partnership has recently been awarded EU INTERREG VA funding to implement four large-scale cross border health and social care projects up to 2021.

To support the delivery of these projects, a recruitment campaign for 50 new jobs has recently commenced.  A range of management, clinical and support roles have been advertised and include vacancies in areas such as acute hospital services, mental health, children’s services, community health and well-being and primary care and older people. Posts are based in a variety of locations throughout the border region and the EU INTERREG VA eligible area.

Commenting on these new posts, Damien McCallion, HSE National Director & Director General of CAWT said: “Thanks to the EU INTERREG VA investment secured by the CAWT Partnership for these cross border projects, we are now in a position to recruit people for brand new positions. So, if you want to be part of an exciting and innovative cross border project, check out the range of roles we have on offer via the recruitment websites of the health and social care services.”

He added: “These EU funded projects will continue until 2021. All projects have been underwritten by both the UK and Irish Governments for the complete project period, including the post-Brexit phase. Thus, there is no concern in relation to the security of funding for this programme of approved initiatives.”

The posts have been advertised in national media. Information and application forms can be directly accessed on the two national recruitment websites for the health and social care services in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland at:
Full details on all positions advertised and the process for application can be found on these two websites. The closing date for all jobs in this current recruitment campaign is Friday 16th Feb 2018 at 3.30pm
The CAWT Partnership members who jointly secured this EU funding are the Health Service Executive (HSE) in the Republic of Ireland and the Southern Health and Social Care Trust, the Western Health and Social Care Trust, the Public Health Agency and the Health and Social Care Board in Northern Ireland.
