Salary and conditions are above award and are generous, reflecting the developmental phase of our emergency services rebuild. All specialists have 20% non-clinical time. Shift structure is civilised, and part-time appointments are available to our specialists. Relocation assistance is provided for full-time staff, and travel compensation and accommodation are available for part time staff travelling from metro or other regional areas.
