Broaden your reach – find your next job in Tasmania
Big enough to spread your wings, yet small enough to feel supported and part of a team
Tasmania is a great place to broaden and build your work experience. It’s large enough to provide new professional development and training opportunities yet small enough to provide a supportive, mentoring and welcoming environment.
There are opportunities across Tasmania’s vibrant industries.
- The appetite for Tasmania’s food and beverage experiences from both visitors and locals is seeing the demand for chefs outstripping supply.
- The thriving local construction industry is resulting in the need for more plasterers, glaziers and carpenters to complete works already in progress, with yet more projects in the pipeline.
- Tasmanian retail trade is performing well, with significant growth in retail turnover since mid-2013 and growth rates consistently exceeding the national average.
- Opportunities for innovators and entrepreneurs are being supported through the development of innovation hubs such as Enterprize Tasmania in Launceston and Hobart.
- The tourism sector continues to grow with 1.3 million visitors to the state in the year to June 2018, an increase of 2 per cent on the previous year. Hotel occupancy rates are high year-round, with regional areas highly seasonal. New tourism infrastructure developments are continuing to pop up around the State to meet growing demand.
- The estimated value of Tasmania’s exports in goods rose by 33.3 per cent to $3.68 billion in the year to June 2018 as demand continues to grow for our seafood, meat, and fruits and vegetables.
- And the National Broadband Network is being rolled out across the State improving our connections to the world and strengthening opportunities for service industries, consultants and agile workers to remotely log in.
Tasmania offers more than just a job. As a small jurisdiction, Tasmania is a place to broaden your reach. The State offers the perfect balance for people looking to develop specialist skills, while maintaining or expanding their generalist capabilities and expertise in other areas.
In the medical field for example, Tasmanian healthcare professionals benefit from access to a broad caseload and often provide end-to-end care. While not quite a jack of all trades, Luke Mitchell, a Registrar, found the move to Tasmania was great for his career because he experienced “greater opportunity to be involved in specialised procedures.”
Lisa, a Radiation Therapist at the Royal Hobart Hospital, originally from Canada, found the benefits of working in Tasmania to be many as “there are so many opportunities in a smaller place”. For a sample of healthcare workers’ experiences at the Royal Hobart Hospital see the current medical services opportunities and check out the Doctors in Training program. The Royal Hobart Hospital is currently being redeveloped, offering the opportunity to work in a new and modern facility.
There are also a number of private hospitals in Tasmania offering a range of services, with a range of positions on offer. Pop by the Hobart Private Hospital and Calvary Health Care Tasmania websites to see the positions available right now.
