Position Details


The Department of Health (DH) has been established to advance the government's policy priorities in improving health and wellbeing outcomes and experience for all Victorians.

DH is responsible for the Health and Ambulance Services, Mental Health and Ageing portfolios. We also lead the government's public health response and recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic.

DH will remain at the very heart of Victoria's recovery effort – looking after families and taking care of Victorians' loved ones.

A priority for DH will be to deliver ever-better quality healthcare through continuous improvement. We will have Victorians and clinicians at the center of our reforms, continued leadership from our health service executives, and deeper engagement with our academic and community partners.

Our ultimate vision is to achieve the best health and wellbeing for all Victorians. We will do this through the creation of a department committed to leading an integrated and continually improving healthcare system for health, mental health and aged care. ​

Mandatory Vaccination Policy

The department is committed to providing and maintaining a working environment which is safe and without risk to the health of its workers and clients. As it is an essential element of any role within the department that employees be able to attend work onsite and to do so safely, employees are required to be up-to-date with their vaccinations against COVID-19 as a condition of their employment. This requirement applies unless they have a medical condition which means they cannot be vaccinated against COVID -19. Therefore, the department will ask any prospective employee, who has been identified as the preferred candidate for a role within the department, to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination status prior to any offer of employment being made. If a prospective employee has a relevant medical condition which means they cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19, they should contact the department to discuss their individual circumstances.


Applicants are encouraged to apply online, submitting a cover letter and a current resume.

The Jobs and Skills Exchange (JSE) Recruitment Policy allows for priority consideration for Victorian Public Service (VPS) and select employees of the Victorian Public Sector who apply through the Jobs Skills Exchange (JSE) jobs board platform.

As such, these employees are strongly encouraged to submit their application through rather than via external advertisement.

For this position, you are not required to address each of the key selection criteria in a separate written document.

Preferred candidates will be required to complete pre-employment screening, including national police check and misconduct screening.

Applicants must be an Australian Citizen, Permanent Resident or hold a valid work permit or visa. Work eligibility will be checked as part of the recruitment process.
