At Western Health, Allied Health practitioners are an essential part of the care we provide to our ever-growing community: continuous, comprehensive care at every stage of life.
As one of our Allied Health practitioners, no two days will ever be the same. You’ll be working across a variety of settings, such as Sunshine Hospital (with its newly-expanded $34.9 million Emergency Department); the Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s facility; Williamstown Hospital; and the fantastic new $1.5 billion Footscray Hospital set to open in 2025.
You’ll be interacting with seasoned clinicians from every discipline and helping patients from all walks of life. Ours is one of the most unique and diverse communities in Australia – and we want your skills to help provide the ongoing, life-changing care it needs.
Whether you’re a new graduate or an experienced professional, Western Health will give you the opportunities, space and support you need to shape your career into what you always dreamed it could be.
Our multi-disciplinary Allied Health teams are deployed across a vast range of settings, all over Melbourne’s west. You’ll get to use your expertise in diverse areas such as acute inpatient care, newborns, paediatrics, aged care, rehab and emergency, as well as home- and community-based services. You’ll encounter people and medical scenarios you’d never experience in private practice. And if you are an early career clinician, then you’ll get to drill down and perfect your skills through a range of development programs and learning opportunities as you prepare to advance your scope of practice
Western Health prides itself on the diversity, empathy, and excellence of its staff. We take care of our own just as much as we take care of the community we serve. If you’re wondering where to find your people – the ones who will help you learn, help you grow, and help you be the best you can be – then we’ve got good news. They’re already here.

There’s no better place for recent graduates to kickstart their careers than Western Health. We offer specialised graduate programs including supervision specifically designed to support you in the public health sector. You’ll learn and develop your unique skill set, all while being supervised and supported by an exceptional and inspiring senior team.
Western Health also has very close ties with the University of Melbourne, Deakin University, La Trobe University and Victoria University, and offers a range of postgraduate scholarships.
Maybe now’s the time to specialise, expand your career, or move into research roles. The size of our catchment area, the range of our facilities, and the diversity of our patients offer endless opportunities for personal and professional growth, while our ties with multiple Victorian universities help keep us at the forefront of medical education and research.
Whatever your career goals, Western Health is the ideal place to refine and enrich your career in Allied Health.
Maybe you’re just starting out and are looking to the future – or maybe you’ve been in your field for several years and want to help shape the future of our care model.
Western Health is the fastest-growing public health service in Australia, serving one of the country’s fastest-growing population areas, with the largest hospital build in Victorian history – the new $1.5 billion Footscray Hospital – currently underway. With all this investment and expansion, now’s the time to get on board; the opportunities for career growth and leadership will only keep coming.
Melbourne is one of the world’s greatest and most liveable cities, only a few hours by plane or car to some of Australia’s most picture-perfect holiday destinations. And Western Health’s catchment area includes a number of desirable, affordable, and up-and-coming suburbs, including Footscray, Yarraville and Williamstown – a walk to the beach, or a ten-minute trip to the city.
We already have hundreds of staff members who moved to Australia for a role in Western Health and never wanted to leave. So… what are you waiting for?
We encourage both junior and experienced international applicants to apply for positions at Western Health. For applicants elsewhere in the world, we can help guide you through the process of getting your accreditation carried over.
