A rewarding workplace staffed by considerate educated staff with goals in mind. Work life balance and health of staff is paramount. Accessibility of supervisors is appropriate. The overall support of colleagues in achieving desired goals and outcomes was appreciated.

One of the best government sites to work for,

The team at NICNAS consists of 100+ PhD Chemistry Scientists. Great team to work with. Very low level of work politics. Comfortable and relaxed work environment. Good reward and recognition culture.

Will never work for Department of Health again

Poor management, no job guidelines, no training of management on employee relations and health and safety. Poor records training and did not meet Records Act requirements. Had a bad experience with a newly trained nurse interfering with office procedure.

A nice place for Federal Government

Department of Health really do have the care factor. Management try to remember everyone's name and where they fit in the organisation. They celebrate many things with a genuine approach and really are mindful to be positive.

Not too bad

When there is work to do, it is often interesting. Sometimes there was a lack of work however. Overall it was generally interesting work and the people there were nice too.

Very family friendly

Working for health has given a great work life balance. I have been able to work independently and also have input in team discussions. I enjoy helping and support others and I have been able to in this position. Management staff are very supportive.


Good pay and conditions.

Typical public sector agency. Lots of travel throughout regional WA.

Investigation of suspected misconduct by staff employed in the Health Department. Travelled around the state and visited many hospitals and nursing posts in WA. Great experience meeting and interacting with new people.


Travel and meeting people.


Investigation of employees with a dependence on drugs and alcohol.

Secure Employment

There is no such thing as a typical day. Gaining an understanding of Facilities Management at a large Tertiary Hospital has been enjoyable. The hardest part of the job is the constant bureaucracy.

Where it all happens for Australian Government, Health Policy and Compliance

Every day I focus on our statutory function of devising and implementing measures to prevent or detect contraventions of Part VII of the National Health Act or the Pharmaceutical Benefits Regulations. This includes conducting Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) compliance activities AND adding value to the areas of PBS education, advice, risk identification, strategy planning, claims analysis, audit implementation and major PBS investigations.
