  • 12-month locum requirement commencing 1 May 2018
  • Charming regional city offers a great base to explore Tasmania
  • Competitive locum rates, accommodation and return travel

Looking for a change of scene? Why not give Tasmania a try! This long-term locum position starts on 1 May right through until May 2019. Stay for a week, a month or more! Or perhaps you could make a regular trip to the Apple Isle to fit in with your other commitments.

About Your Role

Working in a regional area, you will quickly notice the tangible benefits that your role is providing to the community. Strong teamwork and close professional relationships with colleagues are important. The team consists of: four other experienced ENT surgeons; an unaccredited ENT registrar; a rotating specialties registrar for on call; an RMO; and an intern. The on-call component is 1:5, variable depending on leave cover.

About the Location

This regional centre, like the rest of Tasmania, is a good example of good things coming in small packages and is ideally nestled at the head of a beautiful valley. It has grown around a pretty port which has a fascinating history and a vibrant modern-day culture.

The area’s natural beauty is truly staggering, and it has developed a well-deserved reputation for fine wine, excellent food from the local surrounds, and a charming setting in which to enjoy all these good things.

Why Locum?

Regional Australia often struggles to attract and retain specialists to serve its communities and Tasmania is no different. This locum requirement has come about as a result of reduced FTE within the department and you will make a real difference in keeping the service operating at full capacity.

Affordable daily flights mean that the mainland is always within easy reach. This also gives you the option of weekend trips home or interstate, having a regular weekly or fortnightly fly in/fly out commitment or booking in time during the school holidays to take the family somewhere different.

A generous daily remuneration rate is on offer, negotiable depending on experience. You will also have self-contained accommodation provided, return flights or ferry paid, and use of a car if required. Salary packaging is also available for this locum assignment.

About You

To be able to apply for this position, you must hold current Specialist Registration with AHPRA and hold FRACS Otolaryngology. A passion for regional healthcare is also essential in order to be considered for this role.
