Working with us

Whatever their role, our team members work to bring vital healthcare to remote, rural and regional communities. 

Doctors, flight nurses, medical, dental and mental health professionals are all integral parts of our organisation. We also have pilots, patient transfer vehicle drivers, engineers,  administration teams and fundraising staff.

Most of our team are based in Broken Hill or Dubbo but we do offer employment opportunities in Mascot, Launceston, Essendon and the Sydney CBD.

You can learn more about working with us by reading the stories our team members have shared below.
