How to apply
Applications must be submitted through the MedJobsWA (external site) system. Candidates complete one application and have the opportunity to be considered for positions with the participating hospitals and similar vacancies. Applications are allocated to health services for merit-based assessment, according to applicant preferences. Suitable applicants are appointed to a recruitment pool. Selection to the pool may result in being recommended for a position with Health services and hospitals, however an appointment is not guaranteed. The process is extremely competitive and attracts a large number of highly qualified and experienced applicants each year.
Applicants will be notified in writing of the outcome of their application. Applicants are advised whether:
- Recommended for appointment to the pool
- Unsuccessful in their application
- Recommended for a position
All RMOs will be required to work day, evening, night and weekend shifts and also participate in on-call rosters. RMOs must to be self-sufficient in transport to rotation locations.
Information about the RMO position, duties, selection criteria and prerequisites are in the Job Description Form attached with each vacancy advertised.
An RMO Application Guide and FAQ's document will be made available prior to applications opening.
