Are you looking for your first job in rural SA?

Want a role where you can progress as a rural generalist?
We’ll show you options for starting in a practice where you can advance your skills including procedural options.

Our experienced team will be able to answer all of your questions.

Talk to us about your needs, and our team will talk to you about great options for you and your family. 

You’ll always have the choice about which option works best for you.


You’ve found the role or option that might suit you?  Our team can set you up with a visit to meet the local doctors and the practice staff. 

Bring your family for the visit, and we’ll show you schools, housing options and local services, as well as introduce you and your family to local people who will make sure you have networks from the day you start.

If you need a PESCI , or to apply for registration and provider numbers, our team’s technical knowledge will ensure you are not alone with a mountain of paperwork.

You will be able to apply for grants to support relocation costs and orientation in the first weeks so that you have the time and support to settle into your new community.

Your supports will be tailored to your circumstances and the location in which you are working.  Some locations have additional incentives and supports, such as access to the Five Year OTD program or retention grants.  

Have a chat with us to explore all your options.


Once you are part of the resident rural GP workforce, there are many grants and services that will keep you supported professionally, such as the opportunity to attend local Medical Professional Development workshops, grants for ongoing clinical development and the award-winning SAVES after hours virtual emergency service that enables you to spend more time doing what you want to do after hours, and only attending for critical emergency presentations.

There are also opportunities for your partner to apply for a GP Partner grant to support their local connections and interests, and our Locum Program makes it possible to plan leave and take a well-deserved break.


Call or email our team to discuss all the options and supports available to you in your move to country SA. Explore some of the jobs currently available here.

Choose the lifestyle that works for you and your family.
