"Creating a sustainable and socially responsible healthcare system"

Work in a job you are passionate about that has a purpose beyond making a profit. Make a difference at a job you can be proud of.

WHY WE NEED YOU?

Can we offer the same or more than the Big 4? – Yes, because we are smaller and have a nationally recession-proof niche market!

We are not the Big 4, but operate like we are and use the same paperless US technology and processes. Death and taxes are inevitable and for decades we have operated nationally in both areas. So at Health and Life, you get the best of both worlds. How do we know? CEO and Founder of Health and Life - David Dahm used to work for the Big 4.

We offer:

This role will start as an Administrative support role until you have proven your abilities in Professional written and verbal communication, Following up with queries in a timely manner, Time management and Attention to detail.

  • Fast career advancement
    It's often easier to move up through the ranks in a smaller firm than in a larger one. That's a big benefit if you are looking for a clear career path.
  • Friendly culture
    Large firms can be impersonal places to work. You need a great personality with us because you are working closely with great staff and clients. You are not working in a small room all day just processing information. Many graduates leave bigger firms after just a few years, disillusioned by their experience.
  • Less bureaucracy and politics
    Office politics is a big negative if you want to do your job to the best of your ability. Smaller firms tend to have less of it, and less red tape too. That makes it easier to get things done.
  • Varied work
    At a large firm, you might just be a small cog in a big machine, doing the same work day after day. But in our practice, we have a more varied, diverse and interesting role. You do not do the same job every 6 months. The more you learn the more you earn.
    A big 4 firm may have an office in Manhattan but it does not mean you will get any work experience on these clients. Why? Because they like to employ the best locally - like we do. It is hard to compete in an international workforce. If you work in one city or state you will usually work in that area and not beyond its borders. At Health and Life, 98% of clients are located all over Australia from Esperance to Katherine, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth etc. Our client footprint reads like a weather map. You will receive a truly national experience that is beyond the numbers. It's easier to interact with the Director and senior staff in a smaller firm, and it is easier to learn from them. This is a big plus point if you are a truly ambitious graduate.
  • Career Security
  • A smaller firm offers better job and career security because you are not just another number if the firm suddenly loses a big client. The working relationships are more intimate and responsive because you are more multi-skilled and have direct client contact, making you more valuable.

The best deserves the best – this is why we need you now!

All over Australia, this is who is interested in us and why? Are you?

Can your future boss prove that they have a pipeline of job security and opportunity for you?

Only if we are in your top list of five employers should you apply.
