Imagine ... Imagine yourself commuting for less time than it takes to wait for a flat white. Imagine seeing wildlife and the beautiful bush on the drive home. Imagine living in a strong community.There are many benefits to regional living, including affordable housing options, reduced commuting time and uncrowded schools for children. Time seems to slow down and you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy most.
Rural and regional life in NSW has so much to offer. And these communities need healthworkers now more than ever. Whether you're a nurse, doctor, junior medical health officer, physiologist, therapist, sonographer, mental health clinician, social worker, occupational therapist or a paramedic - there is a career waiting for you at more than 228 public hospitals and hundreds of health facilities across rural and regional NSW.
NSW Health is the biggest public health system in Australia with more than 122,000 dedicated (FTE) staff making up the health workforce. Health care workers are more important than ever with an increased demand because of an ageing population, more people with chronic illness such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, and more than 200 babies born every day in NSW. Come and explore the work opportunities and these wonderful areas.
We're recruting now. Find out more about the opportunities available in our local health districts:
