Internationally Qualified Health Professionals

International recruitment by our district has made a key contribution to the delivery of high quality clinical services, especially in areas where recruitment is historically hard to fill. We place great value on our overseas trained staff and their support, and subsequently have many communities of international cultures within our district.

We are always interested in receiving expressions of interest from Overseas Medical and Nursing professionals who are registered or close to completing the AHPRA registration process and have an IELTS score 7 or over.

We provide incentives of up to $10 000 for you to join us, providing sponsorship of your VISA to live and work in Australia.

We are especially interested in Medical and Nursing professionals with Triage, ALS and ED experience.  However, we do have three major rural referral hospitals which offer a broad range of clinical options in which you can practice.

Meet the Requirements?

If you meet the requirements above, please send your resume through to: wnswlhd-recruit-marketing@health.nsw.gov.au
