Relocate to Australia!

We’re embarking on an international recruitment campaign for experienced and qualified Social Workers to join our existing staff and services across all our major sites at Eastern Health in Melbourne, Australia.

We have permanent, full time and part time opportunities for those looking for a change in scenery and/or take the next step in their Social Work careers!

Why Melbourne?

Melbourne is a ‘world city’ and has consistently been named Australia’s most liveable city over the last couple of years. Our community is broad and diverse, supporting people from all walks of life and cultures; hence it’s nickname ‘The Cultural Capital of Australia’.

Whether you are interested in sports, arts, food and wine or the outdoors – Melbourne has something for you and Eastern Health.
