All applications for roles at Macquarie University Hospital must be submitted via the online application form. You can find this by heading to the Current Roles page, selecting the role which you would like to apply for, and clicking on the ‘Apply Now’ link. You must complete the entire Application Form before you will be able to submit your application.
Once you have submitted an application with Macquarie University Hospital, you will receive an automatic notification advising you of the successful receipt of your application.
We will endeavour to advise all applicants of the outcome of their application. We try to notify all applicants as soon as possible, however, this generally occurs within a one-two month period from the closing date of the position, due to the large number of applications that we receive.
Yes, you can apply for more than one role. If you are applying for a Clinical role, you will need to select your specialties on the application form so it is clear what roles you are applying for. If the roles are non-clinical, you will need to submit separate application forms for each role that you are applying for.
You can submit your expression of interest for any positions which are not advertised using the ‘Register Your Interest’ link on the bottom of the Current Roles page. When completing the Application Form, you must select the role titled ‘Register Your Interest- Ref: 9999’. We will endeavour to notify all applicants that submit their interest in a position, the outcome of their submission.
It can generally take up to a month before we are able to contact all applicants and find a successful candidate for a role. Where possible we will endeavour to contact all applicants within the one month period of the outcome of their application.
You will not be required to undertake a medical assessment; however, we do require potential employees to undertake a Functional Pre Employment Screen as a part of the recruitment process. This requires candidates to have their physical suitability for a role assessed against the requirements for the role on a risk matrix to ensure suitability for the role.
All applicants who reach the final stages of the recruitment process will be required to provide the details of two referees for reference checking. Macquarie University Hospital requires at least one of the reference checks to be from a previous Manager or Supervisor.
All staff that perform in roles which require direct contact with children are required to have Working With Children Check Clearance. This will require the applicant to apply online and make an $80 payment to the RMS to receive a valid clearance for a 5 year period.
