The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare is an independent corporate Commonwealth entity. We inform community discussion and decision making through national leadership in the development and provision of authoritative and timely information and analysis on the health and welfare of Australians.

Types of temporary work

Growing demand for our services means that from time to time we have non-ongoing employment opportunities for talented people. We are currently seeking to update our register of individuals interested in short-term employment. Vacancies will typically be for periods of 3 months although shorter or longer term opportunities may also arise.

We are interested in hearing from people with skills in the following areas:

  • research and statistical analysis of health, housing or welfare data;
  • preparation of advice or reports on health, housing or welfare issues;
  • use and application of current information technology systems and packages;
  • data management and metadata development;
  • publication and desktop applications;
  • human resource management;
  • finance and personnel processing; and/or
  • general administration.

Placement on the register

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare welcome applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people(s), people with a disability and people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

Interested parties should complete a Temporary employment register application form (136KB DOC) and attach a copy of their curriculum vitae (CV) or resume.

Time on register

Registration will be current for a period of six months; opportunities for inclusion in future registers will be separately advertised.

Individuals already registered with AIHW, must re-register to be considered for future positions.

Employment may be full time or part time. Pay and conditions will be in accordance with the Institute's Collective Agreement. The actual level of engagement will depend on the duties to be performed.
