About the Healthcare Industry

Australian healthcare is a high priority which means there are excellent job opportunities in the health sector.

The greatest increases in employment are predicted for aged care and carers for people with a disability as well as nursing support and personal care workers.

Working in this profession involves providing direct treatment to patients, or performing auxiliary services in support of treatment. There has never been a better time to move into the industry as evolving health technologies are providing those entering the field with increased compensation, greater job security and improved work-life balance.
