Award/Classification:
Employment Type: Full Time, Part Time
Region: North, North West, South

Following an announcement by the Tasmanian Government, a Public Health Direction was issued on 10 September 2021 requiring that all Health Workers are vaccinated against COVID-19. This step is critical in protecting both our health workforce and vulnerable Tasmanians in our care. 

Applicants for any position within the Department of Health must be prepared to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of their employment.

A fixed term employment register is not a vacancy and inclusion on a register does not guarantee any offer of employment will be made.

 

The Medical Practitioner Employment Register is established to provide the Department of Health and Tasmanian Health Service with a pool of experienced and skilled people who are able to work at short notice.  Interested persons are able to submit their application to be considered for duties on a fixed term or casual basis.

This Register will remain open to applicants until 06 May 2022 and will be reviewed on a regular basis.

Applications from recruitment agencies, including locum agencies, will not be accepted.

Please note that the Register will not preclude other Medical Practitioner positions being advertised if warranted.  Current vacancies are available on the www.jobs.tas.gov.au website.
