Home » Careers » Why Work With Us

We’re proud that over half of our staff come from the Yolŋu communities we serve.

However, we also depend on the amazing clinicians and health professionals who come from elsewhere. They join us with an open heart, and walk alongside our Yolŋu staff and the wider community.

We asked them why they do it. Here’s what they told us.

Do more with you.

You have great skills, experience and strength. Here, you’ll put them to real use and keep growing, in a remote context where you are truly needed. We work on the front line of some of Australia’s most challenging health problems.

Do more for you.

In this place, among these people, you’ll find a life that few get to experience. If you come with an open heart, the Yolŋu and our wider team will embrace you and welcome you into their lives.

Be more than you.

Miwatj Values

Our team members are excited to test their skills, knowledge and experience in a challenging, complex and highly rewarding remote context. Crucially, they feel truly connected to our values, living them in the clinic and in the community every single day.

  1. We believe… and we invest.
  2. We respect… and we trust.
  3. We contribute… and we learn.
  4. We stand strong… and we last. (And we do it together, always)

We’re proud but not perfect. And there’s much still to do.

Over three decades, Miwatj and the communities we serve have achieved so much. However, our work is far from complete. And like every employer, we don’t always get it right.

The complexity of our work and our context brings new challenges all the time. Our commitment to you is to openly share the opportunities and the challenges of joining our team, and ensuring you arrive with your eyes open.

This is not an easy job, and it’s not right for everyone. But if you have strength, resilience and an open heart, a life-changing opportunity awaits.
