Job Description

Johnstaff International Development has been appointed to project manage the ANGAU redevelopment, the largest single infrastructure project being delivered under the PNG-Australia development partnership. We have established the ANGAU Project Delivery Office (PDO) in Lae, Morobe Province and are currently seeking to recruit a Director Program Quality & Operations to join us in delivering a high quality, sustainable and patient focused hospital precinct that modernises the delivery of health services in Papua New Guinea.

The Redevelopment

The Governments of Papua New Guinea and Australia are redeveloping ANGAU Memorial Hospital in Lae, Morobe, Province, Papua New Guinea. This major redevelopment project will deliver a high quality regional referral hospital that provides improved access to integrated health services for the people of the Momase and Highlands Regions.

This project involves the progressive redevelopment of the existing health services infrastructure at ANGAU Hospital. The hospital is being built and equipped to international standards and designed to best serve the needs of patients. New and refurbished facilities will enable a quality integrated health service, with facilities and equipment that are consistent with GoPNG guidelines, standards and reformed models of care.

In addition to the capital works, there is concurrent investment in human capital to achieve sustainable improvements in patient care – in particular, enhanced governance and oversight, organisational reform, and workforce development and training.

The Position

The Director Program Quality & Operations will provide high quality program governance leadership and advice to ensure the highest standards of effectiveness and accountability in the design, delivery and commissioning of the redeveloped hospital. The Director Program Quality & Operations will ensure program liaison with DFAT and key stakeholders, and supervise a small team to:

  • Monitor, measure and communicate the relevance and impact of the ANGAU redevelopment to key stakeholders and audiences;
  • Ensure the project delivers positive impact by maintaining a consultative; collaborative, socially inclusive and child-safe approach to all project activities;
  • Coordinate program reporting and stakeholder engagement; and
  • Supervise Project Delivery Office operations.

The ideal candidate has experience in international aid and development programs. They will have an advanced university degree (or equivalent) in the fields of international development, management or related discipline. They will bring strategic planning, management, monitoring and reporting, stakeholder engagement and operational skills to the team.

The position is based full-time in Lae, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea.

Remuneration will comply with the Australian Aid Adviser Remuneration Framework (C4). The preferred applicant will be required to undergo a police record check and medical examination as a condition of employment.
