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.
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:
Sydney, capital of New South Wales and one of Australia’s largest cities, is best known for its harbourfront Sydney Opera House, with a distinctive sail-like design. Massive Darling Harbour and the smaller Circular Quay port are hubs of waterside life, with the arched Harbour Bridge and esteemed Royal Botanic Garden nearby.
Queensland’s buzzing riverside capital city is wedged between the ocean and rugged national parks. Brisbane is a cosmopolitan hub for arts, culture and dining but still retains a close connection with nature and a classic laid-back Queensland attitude.
A modern city with lots of amenities, close to the coast and popular skiing areas in winter, and only 3 hours’ drive from Sydney. There are several jobs available:
A large regional centre 2 hours drive from Melbourne. Good access to ski fields and popular hiking areas.
A large coastal town 2 hours drive south of Perth, and 30 mins from the Margaret River Wine region.
Extending from Melbourne’s eastern suburbs to the New South Wales border, Gippsland offers a variety of natural attractions like nowhere else in Victoria. It boasts fabulous beaches, rain forests, snowfields, hiking and riding trails and much more.
Hobart, capital of Australia’s island state of Tasmania, sits on the River Derwent. At its fashionable Salamanca Place, old sandstone warehouses host galleries and cafes. Nearby is Battery Point, a historic district with narrow lanes and colonial-era cottages.
