GenV Recruiters - Various locations

Murdoch Childrens Research Institute

Multiple vacancies available now for GenV Recruiters in our GenV team here at MCRI. These positions are available across areas such as Melbourne CBD, Epping Shepparton Geelong, Clayton, Sandringham, Dandenong, Wodonga, Mildura, Warrnambool and Hamilton . So we strongly encourage anyone who is interested in these roles to apply now and not miss out on this unique opportunity in moving research forward.

Our new GenV Recruiters, will be people who are highly motivated, have excellent interpersonal skills and an approachable, enthusiastic manner to enable successful recruitment of families. You will need to be sensitive to complex and stressful situations and are comfortable in hospital settings with newborn babies. The role of the GenV Recruiter largely focuses on visiting all parents/guardians of newborn babies for each hospital during the recruitment period, inviting them to participate in GenV. Home births are also eligible. Visits with families are mostly conducted face-to-face and will occur shortly after babies are born while still in the birthing hospital; some will be recruited elsewhere, e.g. in outpatient clinics or by phone/videoconference. Successful recruitment of participants is a key component of this whole-of-state study and requires effective communication skills and knowledge of the study design and outcomes. The training needed to understand GenV and the processes involved will be provided as part of the role. GenV Recruiters are “the face” of GenV in the hospital community and will be instrumental in the success of the project. As part of the recruitment team, GenV Recruiters will report to the local GenV Area Manager and work as part of a team in the hospital environment.
