Explore the health sector job board and start preparing for your future career…
James, a community GP who is organising the Health Sector Industry Booth, knows that Health Care and Social Assistance is one of the biggest employing industries in Australia. In fact, in 2021 it was the largest employing industry in Australia, making up 14.5% of the workforce.1 The industry is only getting bigger. James also knows how rewarding working in the health industry can be. With new studies and technological developments, there are more exciting opportunities than ever.
James has selected a few job advertisements for roles in the industry. He wants to show visitors to the booth that there’s a need for qualified workers in traditional health roles, as well as space for innovation. A lot of the attendees will likely be students or people who haven’t worked in the health sector before. They might not be familiar with some of the terminology and concepts, so James has prepared explanations. He’s also included links to helpful websites and tutorials for people who are interested in learning more about the skills and knowledge necessary for these roles.
