Following a jet-setting 2022 helping healthcare organisations all over the world connect with ambitious jobseekers to plug vital skills needs and address shortages at every level, the Healthcare Job Fair looks to break new ground as it touches down in Australia for the very first time ever this year.
Over 350 health and social care organisations exhibited to more than 5,000 candidates in 2022. On Saturday, March 4th this year the Healthcare Job Fair will give jobseekers in the health and care industry and the world’s top healthcare employers alike the unparalleled opportunity to come together face-to-face in Melbourne, Australia.
Melbourne is home to more than 50 public and private hospitals tending to the needs of its nearly five million inhabitants, who make it the most populous city in Oceania. Boasting pubs, arcades, libraries and museums, Melbourne’s status as an Australian cultural centre makes it a lure for healthcare professionals from all over Australia and the world at large.
Australia’s Premiere Healthcare Providers Flock To Melbourne
Jobseekers attending the Melbourne Healthcare Job Fair will have a chance to network with dozens of prospective employers representing every facet of the health, social care and allied health sector. Promising candidates will have the opportunity to connect and interview with some of Australia’s leading lights in quality healthcare provision, including Ramsay Health Care, St. John of God Health Care, Monash Health and Grampians Health.
The Government of Victoria’s Department of Health will also be recruiting as it looks to plug gaps in its skills roster. With Victoria expected to require an additional 65,000 health workers across all fields over the next three years, the timing has never been better for healthcare professionals looking for a new opportunity and a new challenge, to make a difference where it’ll be felt most.
Global Health Worker Shortages
In the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire world is bearing the brunt of acute shortages in every aspect of health and social care. Australia alone faces a shortfall of some 100,000 healthcare workers as of last year; by the middle of the decade, that will include some 20,000 – 40,000 nurses who are currently looking to leave the country or the profession. Worldwide, these figures reach stratospheric proportions, with the WHO predicting a shortfall of some 10 million healthcare workers globally by 2030.
The Healthcare Job Fair gives employers and candidates unrivalled freedom to shop around for the skillsets and opportunities that match their unique needs. Jobseekers at the Melbourne Healthcare Job Fair will not only have the chance to network and connect with dozens of global healthcare leaders but attend interviews on-site with promising matches, with many employers making job offers that very day!
