NMJG : Portal directing nursing and midwifery graduates to jobs

Health employers are being encouraged to advertise graduate-suitable positions on an online jobs board for new nursing and midwifery graduates looking for work in the health workforce.

The Nursing and Midwifery Graduate Jobs Information Portal (NMGJ) was launched by Health Workforce Australia (HWA) in January 2012 to address concerns that many new graduates were having difficulty finding positions in the health workforce at the end of their training. The website, which targets Australian-trained new nurses and midwives from the 2012 cohort, directs users to graduate-suitable job opportunities advertised in public and private hospitals, aged care, primary health care and general community care sectors.

A total of 2175 graduates had registered with the portal up to 1 December 2012. Both private and public sector employers can advertise their graduate-suitable jobs for free on the website.

Employers can register through HWA via www.nmgj.org.au or by emailing: graduatejobs@hwa.gov.au
