We want you to have the best start to your career with us, right from the time you apply.

Who do we look for?

We are committed to achieving our vision to be a leading and respected health network for women, babies, children, young people and their families and communities. 

We are achieving this through implementing and providing our services underpinned by our CREATE together values of Compassion, Respect, Equity, Accountability and working Together for Excellence.  

If you share these values, then we would encourage you to consider us as your employer of choice.  You can read more about our values and how we apply them in our Strategy (2026) – Realising Potential, Creating Together (PDF 1.6KB).

How do we engage with our candidates?

As part of the South Australian Public Sector, we are committed to attracting and retaining high performing employees to deliver our services to the community of South Australia, and beyond.

Our Network plays a key role in building a stronger SA, and our workforce therefore needs to be responsive and agile, engaged with our consumers and patients to achieve the best possible outcomes for themselves, their families and communities. 

Our employment decisions are underpinned by the belief that investment in our recruitment will ensure we select the best candidates for the roles within our Network, aligned to the requirements of that role as well as our create values enabling us to meet our community expectations.

Recruitment Campaigns and Employment Pools

The Women’s and Children’s Health Network makes every effort to ensure you can apply for our roles when the time is right for you. 

A number of our roles will be open for longer periods of time or on an ongoing basis which enables you to decide when you are ready.  Our campaigns will always be advertised through the jobs boards, so if you have a job alert you will be advised of them.  We do refresh them annually, so you can reapply.

To create better flexibility in when and where we make offers, some roles will enable you to be part of our Employment Pool.  If you are successful at being recommended for an employment pool, this means that your application will remain active for 12 months, and you may be contacted at any time to be offered a role.

This gives you the flexibility to accept an offer when it suits you, and not be concerned about reapplying for the same role.

Information for International Applicants

The Women’s and Children’s Hospital will offer sponsorship for positions in shortage and after we have made efforts to find suitable applicants locally.  If you are interested in living and working in South Australia, you are strongly encouraged to take the lead, and apply for appropriate working visas through the Department of Home Affairs.  Having a relevant visa with full working rights (in most cases) would be your best option. 

You can also check out the Immigration SA site for further information on any special requirements to seek application to live and work in South Australia.

For our professional roles, you will require registration and an assessment of your qualifications to check equivalency.  It is important that you research this information yourself before applying.  There are no exceptions to these requirements, so if you are unable to seek appropriate qualification equivalency, obtain registration or an appropriate working visa we would encourage you to finalise these matters before applying for a role with us.

We would strongly encourage you to read the International applicant guidelines to obtain full details of these requirements.
