About our Employment Registers:

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in this Employment Register.

Our Registers are for use by non-employees. Current employees should lodge their interest for additional hours/duties on the intranet Expression of Interest page.

Registers provide a mechanism to recruit to casual vacancies. They may also be used to fill short, fixed term vacancies where normal recruitment processes are not practicable.

For permanent and more lengthy fixed term vacancies, please look at the individual advertisements on

This Register will remain open until 30 June 2022 and will be reviewed on a regular basis.

Please note a fixed-term and casual employment register is not a vacancy and inclusion on a register does not guarantee any offer of employment will be made.

This Register:

We welcome applications from Enrolled Nurses with experience or training in mental health and also those who are looking for a pathway into mental health or to broaden their current skills and experience.

We offer opportunities to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team with consumers across the lifespan in a number of settings including inpatient, respite, rehabilitation and forensic.

If you wish to register your interest in Acute and Sub-acute Hospital Nursing (not Mental Health), click here, or Community Nursing (including our district hospitals and health centres), click here.
