Top Jobs in DWS that have a Health Workforce Certificate

In our recent blog post we have outlined how GPs on a 10 year moratorium are affected by the recent Visas for GPs Initiative & the likely upcoming DWS changes. Learn more

In short, if you are on a 457 or 482 visa and you would like to move to a new practice, your employer is required to have a Health Workforce Certificate (HWC) and they also need to be located in a DWS.

The imminent DWS system changes are likely becoming more restrictive, we highly recommend finding a new job as soon as possible if you are planning to change employer.

Here are the best current locations with DWS and HWC

We haved worked hard to find the best locations to meet the required criteria and we’ll continue to in the future.  Here are the best positions we have found so far:
