Join our team

We’re looking for talented people to help us provide public healthcare services in tropical northern Australia.

Join the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service team of over 6000 staff who deliver health services in far north Queensland.

We have opportunities in Cairns and at more than 30 regional, rural and remote facilities across our vast region of 143,000 square kilometres.

It’s a great place to live and find your ideal work-life balance. You’ll be close to natural wonders like the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree rainforest. Explore the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, Cassowary Coast and the tropical savannah on the way to outback Australia. It’s a relaxed and friendly place, with mild winters and tropical sunshine.

And far north Queensland is the ideal place to gain new skills and advance your career.


Thinking of a seachange? or perhaps a Forest change? the Cairns and Surrounding Hinterland hospitals are looking for professional healthcare staff.
