Aurora Australis Tasmania

The best Australian GP jobs and a fantastic lifestyle await you here in beautiful Tasmania

After several years working in outback Australia, my family and I decided to return to Tasmania. We knew where we wanted to live, but I approached HR+ for their advice and help to find the best job for me. They arranged a site visit and interviews and I accepted a position in an excellent general practice which has encouraged me to pursue my passion for medical education. HR+ arranged a professional orientation so that I was up to speed with the local context and they also offer financial support for professional development. If you’re looking for a job in Tasmania, I strongly recommend contacting HR+. Tasmania is a fantastic place to live and work and we definitely made the right move!
