Eligibility and immigration

To work with us you must be an Australian citizen, have permanent resident status or appropriate visas that allow you to undertake paid work in Australia.

If you are successful in securing employment with us we may sponsor your visa application and subsidise associated administrative costs.

The Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) manages the permanent and temporary entry of people to Australia.

We may provide permanent sponsorship under the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme or temporary sponsorship under the Temporary Business Long Stay – Standard Business Sponsorship for people with recognised skills seeking to work in Tasmania and who secure a position with us.

We will discuss your preferred options with you.

We work closely with DIAC to facilitate timely visa processing, contact your hiring manager to find out more. You can also contact the relevant Tasmanian Health Service Recruitment team details below.

Intending applicants must meet immigrations requirements relating to good health and be able to provide police clearances for all countries in which they have lived for more than one year during the last 10 years.

Temporary residents should contact their health service or hospital of choice about the possibility of sponsorship.
