Then look no further than the Western NSW Local Health District (LHD).

As one of the largest Local Health Districts in the state, Western NSW LHD covers a geographical area similar to the size of Great Britain. The District delivers health care to more than 260,000 people across 23 Local Government Areas, including the Bathurst, Orange and Dubbo regions.

The 2013 Sydney Royal Agricultural Show offers a unique opportunity for the LHD to take a proactive approach to recruitment by showcasing the many and varied advantages for health professionals of making the move to Western NSW.

Western NSW LHD Chief Executive Scott McLachlan said the Royal Easter Show will allow the District to reach people living in the city who may be thinking about the career and lifestyle opportunities on offer outside of the big smoke.

“Western NSW LHD offers great prospects across a diverse range of health disciplines. We are seeking to recruit more nurses, midwives, allied health staff, doctors and dedicated health professionals. If you are passionate about delivering exceptional health care then we want to hear from you.

“Having recently made the move myself, I can say from personal experience that this Health District has many very desirable attractions. Not only do we offer that sought after work/life balance, but the district boasts extensive educational opportunities, housing affordability and there are added financial incentives to make the move too.” Mr McLachlan said.

The exhibit will be exhibit is located in the Home & Lifestyle Pavilion, between the CWA cafe and the entrance to the Woolworths Fresh Food Dome.  It will be manned by a team of health professionals, many of whom can personally vouch for making the tree change. The display will aim to entice visitors to stop and to have a talk with staff about potential career opportunities and incentives to work for the LHD.

The innovative recruitment drive will focus on both general health and mental health career opportunities.  Flyers and other information will be available to provide food for thought and helpful recruitment links for interested people to investigate further.

“We often hear of ambitions individuals, couples and families looking for the dream of work/life balance. In our District that dream can certainly be a reality. Since it can be difficult for busy professionals to take the time out to inspect what’s on offer on the other side of the Blue Mountains, we decided to come to the city and put our offer on a platter. We hope they’ll find the opportunity just too good to refuse.” Mr McLachlan said.
