Advertising type and contract lengths for the 2021 clinical year

Positions are to be advertised in line with the accompanying table.
 

Accredited training positions

It is understood that not all facilities are able to accommodate two or more consecutive years of training. Where accredited facilities are able to offer a longer contract for facility-based ads, they are listed separately.
 
Please note where the maximum contract length is listed as greater than one year, it can only be offered if the facility is accredited accordingly or there is a training Network/Rotation arrangement in place (including the specialities utilising the allocation business process).
If there are any changes required, e.g. your facility can accommodate more than one year’s contract and it is not identified below, please email Recruitment Strategy.
Otherwise, positions not listed in the accompanying sheet default to a one year contract.
 

Unaccredited trainee and SRMO positions

Facility-based SRMO and unaccredited trainee positions may be advertised for either one or two years depending on LHD/N local requirements.
 

Types of advertisements

  • Facility-based - advertisement placed by a facility.
  • Centralised - Statewide centralised recruitment advertisement as per JMO recruitment policy or an advertisement episode that has been approved by the Ministry of Health to use the e-Recruitment system centralised panel functionality.
  • Network/rotational - must be an approved network/rotation position and must include one of the naming conventions available in the Training Network/Training Rotation dropdown box in the JMO e-Recruitment system. 

Maximum/advertised contract length

Refers to the contract length for a trainee entering the program. Offers to successful applicants with some accredited training progression in that specialty will be the minimum full year contract length required for them to complete the period of training (i.e. a successful applicant with 18 months accredited training experience in a three year advertised program will be given a two year contract).
 

Career Medical Officers (CMOs) and Clinical Superintendents

Where CMOs and Clinical Superintendents are advertised as part of the annual JMO recruitment campaign, the maximum contract length available is one year.
