The Emergency Department at Sunshine Hospital is one of the largest in the state. The staff who work there see plenty of action and need to be on top of their game as they encounter a wide array of conditions, illnesses and injuries. More than 100,000 patients come through the unit each year, including about 27,000 paediatric patients in the separate part of the unit.
The major expansion of the unit, completed in early 2021, means we now need several hundred additional staff so we can operationalise the new and state of the art space we have available.
We need to expand to meet the incredibly high need in our community. We need you to help make this possible.
You will bring your career to life in a place where the diverse patients have their own fascinating stories.
Never a dull moment and some days are a blur, but your colleagues will always be there for you, ready to lend a hand or share a concern. If it’s some humour or snacks that you need – we’ve got that covered too!
Come for the organised ‘chaos’.
Stay for the camaraderie.
We can’t wait to meet you.
Maybe you’re looking for one day a week to dip your toe back into emergency nursing. Maybe you’re a specialist doctor looking for sessional work.Whatever your level of experience or career goals, we want to hear from you.
We’re looking for:
expansion completed in early 2021

We believe there is no better organisation for you to progress your career than Western Health. This is for a number of reasons but a major one is that we are the fastest growing public health service in Australia, as we are serving the fastest growing population areas of Australia – on the western and north western edges of Melbourne.
The largest hospital build in Victoria is well underway – the new $1.5 billion Western Health run Footscray Hospital.
Sunshine Hospital is the largest campus in a health service with more than 10,000 staff. Our Sunshine Emergency Department offers multiple opportunities for staff to move into senior positions.
We’d love you to join us.
Look we all know that Melbourne is one of the world’s greatest cities and to add to the attraction, a couple of hours’ drive or flights in most directions and you can holiday and have your long weekends anywhere you like in Australia.
At Western Health, we have hundreds of staff who have moved to Australia for a role within our organisation and have never left! Including our Chief Executive as well as dozens of staff in the Sunshine Hospital Emergency Department.
So go on, what are you waiting for?
It is a part of how we work here at Western Health – we farewell staff as they move interstate for family reasons or as they take some time off to have another child. Others take the caravan on the round Australia route and then come back to it. For other staff, they focus on study or just decide to learn a new hobby for a while. Whatever has led to your absence, we are a great place to support you as you return. We realise you might want to start with just a few shifts a week and then build up or you might need to work in a certain way to fit in with family or caring responsibilities. Contact us or apply now and let’s take it from there.
We encourage experienced applicants holding full registration from a comparable health system to apply. We are also working very hard to expand the relocation support we are providing you, we look forward to updating you further during your Western Health recruitment process.
The current Victorian Relocation Program can assist with the move to Melbourne with a $10,000 allowance.
