The Ministry of Health typically recruits one intake of new trainees each year.

Applications can only be accepted during the annual recruitment process, at which time job advertisements are placed on a range of recruitment websites such as SEEK, CareerOne, and JobsNSW. Applicants are required to submit an online application addressing a number of targeted questions, which ask them to reflect on their experience and describe examples of when they have used specific skills.

The application must also include:
  • an up to date resume/CV including details of the applicant's health-related employment (no more than 5 pages)
  • a full academic transcript for the applicant's public health qualification
  • evidence of the applicant's right to work in Australia for the duration of the traineeship (e.g. Australian or New Zealand passport or Australian birth certificate, citizenship certificate, or permanent residency visa).
