Your Last

First day on the job.

Working with Western Health is a life-changing experience – for you as well as the people you’ll meet and treat.

A very high proportion of our staff find they really fall in love with the fascinating and challenging work of caring for the communities of the west of Melbourne and these staff end up remaining with the organisation for many years but progress their careers due to the opportunities that arise in such a rapidly growing and progressive, large health service.

Our multidisciplinary teams work side-by-side, supporting each other every step of the way, both personally and professionally. Our employment opportunities frequently include part-time, casual and night-shift roles, and a flexible rostering system allows you to easily balance your work with home life and family responsibilities.

As an equal opportunity employer, our teams are proudly diverse. We welcome applications from people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, and especially encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at apply.

Lifelong learning in every department.

At Western Health, we want every member of every member of every team to reach their full potential – which is why we’re committed to providing ongoing upskilling and training opportunities, including:

Postgraduate Education
