The whole world needs you.

You can be a healthcare professional anywhere. What’s different about Tasmania is our culture and lifestyle.

Choosing to pursue your health career in Tasmania means choosing connections with your colleagues and your patients. Our smaller teams mean you can have access to, and work closely with, decision-makers, and be involved in the development of new programs. Your morning commutes don’t involve hours in traffic, and your time outside of work can be spent surfing or hiking, taking classes, writing novels, learning to fly-fish, or taking part in the community.

Being a healthcare worker is among the most meaningful careers in the world. We invite you to do it in a meaningful place.

About the Tasmanian Health Service (THS)

The Tasmanian Health Service is a fully integrated system that delivers a range of services. These are divided into three key regions across Tasmania: North, North West and South.

THS services range from public health and preventative services to primary health and community care. This also includes emergency health services, specialist services and hospital-based treatment in public and private hospitals, residential, rehabilitation and palliative care.

Care is delivered across acute, subacute and community and primary health settings with most healthcare delivered outside of the hospitals in GP rooms, community health centres, private clinics, aged and residential care facilities, and in the home.

The THS has over 300 facilities across Tasmania that provide high quality, accredited services, with exceptionally skilled staff, that are closely integrated with their local communities and the other parts of the health system.

People here are invested in helping you to thrive. There are so many opportunities for growth and development.
