Job Description


NHMRC is seeking people from a range of disciplines who are interested in filling non-ongoing employment opportunities that may arise. The Non-ongoing (Temporary) Employment Register is primarily used to fill short term temporary positions, and sometimes these positions may be required to be filled at short notice. The positions may be filled on a full time, part time or casual basis depending on business needs.

Positions may become available across various areas including program and project management, policy development and implementation, research, legal, general administration, executive assistance, corporate services and compliance and evaluation.

Positions may be filled at the APS 2 to APS 6 level or Executive Level 1 and 2. Candidates should also be aware this is a register only and that you will only be contacted regarding your application if a vacancy arises that matches your skills, qualifications and/or experience.

Non-ongoing vacancies may arise at any time. The majority of positions are located in Canberra with less frequent opportunities available in Melbourne.


To be eligible for non-ongoing employment you are required to meet the following minimum requirements:
• You must be an Australian Citizen
• Satisfactory character clearance (AFP check)
• Be eligible and willing to obtain a security clearance to the appropriate level (if applicable).


Applications must be submitted using our online application system and will remain valid for up to six months from the commencement of the register – 15 July 2013 to 31 January 2014.

Application renewal is required on a six monthly basis to ensure that you are still interested in working for NHMRC. You can update your resume online at any time and you can withdraw your application if you are no longer available to work for us.

This register is intended for non-ongoing opportunities only and applicants should have no expectation of gaining ongoing employment.
