About Us

The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia (RFDS) is one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world. Using the latest in aviation, medical and communications technology, our Queensland section delivers extensive primary health care and 24-hour aeromedical emergency service, from nine strategic bases to those who live, work and travel throughout the State.

About the Role

Royal Flying Doctor Service - Queensland Section (RFDS Qld) now has a fast-paced opportunity for an experienced HR Specialist/Recruitment Lead to join our team. This role is based at 5-7 Lobelia Circle, Brisbane International Airport, and is being offered on a permanent, full-time basis.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced HR Professional to make a genuine difference in a highly regarded community services organisation. A large portion of your time will be spent driving and coordinating quality recruitment activities and procedures, ensuring we source the right candidates. You will also act as a HR 'generalist', working collaboratively with the rest of the HR team and broader business to identify opportunities for process improvements and respond to HR related enquiries as needed.

Some of your day-to-day duties will include, but not be limited to:

  • Coordinating the full end-to-end recruitment process for the business including providing strategic insights on recruitment and retention activity;
  • Shortlisting and screening candidates, managing logistics of assessment/interview process etc & conducting interviews in consultation with hiring managers;
  • Creation/management of contract documentation including letters for new starters and variations to appointments;
  • Identifying and implementing opportunities for process improvement at each step of the talent acquisition process;
  • Completing and maintaining recruitment reporting in support of other HR initiatives such as diversity, inclusion and belonging;
  • Further building and leveraging the RFDS online presence (eg – our careers site, LinkedIn and social media advertising channels); and
  • Other HR tasks, projects and administration as required.

Who are we looking for?

This is a diverse, high-paced role in which every day will present new opportunities and challenges. Successful candidates will have demonstrated experience in a recruitment focused role, with excellent time management and administration skills, enabling you to effectively coordinate large scale recruitment activity.

You will also need to demonstrate a well-rounded knowledge of generalist HR practices, including contract management, ideally with a focus on enterprise agreement and award interpretation.

Tertiary qualification in human resources or similar will be highly regarded, but not essential; and any experience using ConnX or other HR and recruitment platforms will be a plus. 

You will have strong interpersonal, negotiation, consultation and communication skills appropriate to all stakeholders.

Importantly, we are looking for someone who is passionate about recruitment; is motivated to learn and understand all aspects of the RFDS business; and who has the ability to use this knowledge to provide strategic and considered insights that will help guide the organisation's retention and engagement strategies. 

Why join us?

In return for your skills, energy and commitment to our mission, we offer you the opportunity to make a real impact. You’ll work every day with people who are passionate about our purpose and proud of their contribution to our iconic organisation.

You’ll come to work knowing that your efforts are enabling our organisation to remain at the forefront of rural and remote health care delivery and advocacy. Critically, you’re also helping ensure our organisation is efficient, effective and sustainable now and in the future.

A competitive remuneration package will be negotiated with the successful applicant. Generous salary packaging arrangements are also on offer to further increase your take-home pay.

This opportunity won't last long - be part of a well-established Australian success story - apply now.
