Selection process

Each application will be assessed on the quality of its cover letter, curriculum vitae, academic results and clinical reports. Once assessed, successful applicants will be invited to attend a face-to-face interview at the hospital.

The interview is an opportunity for us to get to know you better as well as an opportunity for you to learn more about RMH. We believe in personal face-to-face interviews with two RMH staff who will endeavour to make you feel as relaxed as possible.

Interviews will take place between 22 August - 26 August 2016. Successful interstate and New Zealand applicants will be offered the option of a telephone interview.

All prospective graduates, including interstate and New Zealand applicants, wishing to work in Victoria will need to apply to both Computer Match and The Royal Melbourne Hospital. Applicants must be eligible for Computer Match to apply to the Royal Melbourne Hospital Graduate Nurse Program in the first instance. Applicants ineligible for Computer Match will be invited to apply post 17 October for any unmatched positions.
