Jobs in Australia


  1. If your facility is considering international recruitment, you will come across two very different models:

    Direct Hire
    Once the international nurse arrives at your facility, he/she becomes your permanent employee and receives the same salary and benefits as your regular nursing staff.

    Contract Hire
    The international nurse is employed by a staffing agency that contracts their services to your facility. Agencies usually charge hefty fees which can increase your staffing expenditure substantially.

    At JNJ International, we believe your nurse staffing crisis can be solved by placing permanent, international nurses at your facility. We believe these direct-hire nurses can deliver more consistent quality of care for your patients and reduce your overall spend on recruitment.

  1. JNJ International works closely with clients to coordinate the arrival of their international nurses.

    We arrange flights, airport pickup, temporary housing, transportation, setting up a bank accounts and other essential tasks.

    We make sure every nurse settles in successfully into their new job and community.
