RDWA is a not-for-profit organisation delivering a comprehensive range of workforce support and services to medical, allied health and nursing professionals in rural South Australia.

RDWA has built an enviable reputation over the last 20 years by working closely with rural health professionals and their families to positively impact the health and wellbeing of rural communities across SA.

RDWA are currently seeking a Recruitment Consultant to provide candidate sourcing, engagement, applicant assessment support, placement, and post placement care for general practice medical roles in rural SA.  

Reporting to the Medical Workforce Services Manager, the Recruitment Consultant will proactively manage candidate engagement centred on building strong, long term, positive relationships with both onshore and offshore general practitioners (GPs). 

Proactive, long term candidate management will ensure the right doctor is engaged for the right position with the right support to ensure a recruitment outcome that is a win-win for the doctor, the practice and the rural community. 

This role is ideally suited to a candidate who is aligned to the values and ethos of an organisation that is driven to enhance the health and wellbeing of rural communities.  This is a role for a highly motivated, “people person” who enjoys building authentic connections with suitably qualified and experienced candidates considering GP career opportunities in rural SA.

Based at Mile End, the role will involve occasional planned travel to enable engagement with GPs in their workplaces. 

The ideal candidate will have outstanding verbal and written communication skills, excellent attention to detail, administrative and time management skills and be highly capable of building quality relationships that meet the needs of both GP candidates and the RDWA.

Amongst the higher level skills sought are credibility, proactivity, responsiveness and a genuine interest and care for the candidates and practices you work with.  This is not a commission based environment.  The role is focussed on relationship building and relationship management and will demand integrity, team work and professionalism.    

A track record in the health arena is not essential however the successful candidate will need to quickly develop a detailed understanding and appreciation of the rural medical workforce.

This is an exciting opportunity for a candidate with a mature, collaborative and collegiate approach, the ability to communicate effectively and genuine interest in supporting and improving the health of people living in rural South Australia.
