If you are a regional student who has moved away from home to study, Northeast Health’s cadetship program gives you the opportunity to undertake paid work in a field related to your study.

Eligibility for the cadetship program

The cadetship program at Northeast Health is open to higher education and VET students who are originally from our region. You are eligible for the program if you are:

  • studying full-time
  • studying in a field relevant to health (clinical or non-clinical)
  • studying away from home.

How many hours will I be working?

Each year, up to 3 summer cadetships are advertised in August or September. Typically, students participate in a 6 to 8-week work contract during the semester break or during their gap year. You will be employed as a Junior Clerical Officer in an area related to your field of study and you will be expected to work 4 to 5 days per week, for a total of 225 hours.

If you are a successful applicant, you will start your contract in November or December.
