Applicants for any position within the Department of Health must be prepared to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of their employment.

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 www.jobs.tas.gov.au.

This Register will remain open until 14 July 2022 and will be reviewed on a regular basis.
