1 year locum with possibility of full-time position
Dec 1, 2018 to Dec 1, 2019
The midwives at Roots Community Midwives are looking for 1 year of locum coverage, ideally starting December 2018 with the possibility of extending into a full-time position for the right candidate. There may be flexibility with the start date for the right candidate.
Roots Community Midwives is a well-established practice in Squamish, serving families in Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton. We are the only midwifery practice serving this area. We mostly work out of Squamish General Hospital (SGH) but also hold privileges at Lions Gate Hospital (LGH). SGH is a rural hospital with a part-time OB and no pediatricians. RMs and family doctors act as primary “baby doctors” at c-sections and births. We enjoy good relations and support from nursing and physician colleagues. We have a few maternity RNs who offer home birth back-up as well. We have lovely clientele including many multips and home births.
This position would mean working in a team of 3. There is a possibility that we expand to a team of 3.5 or 4 RMs in the future. First call shifts are 24 or 48 hours. We are a fun group of committed and experienced midwives who value open and honest communication, teamwork and work-life balance.
Rural experience would be a great asset and strong communication skills are a requirement.
Reimbursement will be 70% of one midwife’s worth of billings (as per MABC Locum Fee Guidelines) the first 3 months, followed by one midwife’s portion of billings minus overhead expenses thereafter.
Squamish is an amazing place to live and practice! There are breathtaking views everywhere you look as well as great hiking, climbing, biking and lake swimming in the summer as well as skiing in the winter. The community is vibrant and thriving with lots of young families.
If you are interested in moving to Squamish to join our team for this locum, and possibly beyond, we would love to hear from you. Please email email@example.com. Please note that only those being considered for the position will be contacted.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
