All KEMH employees are offered the opportunity to participate in flexible remuneration (salary) packaging. Salary packaging is an Australian Tax Office approved means of maximising take-home salary. It involves restructuring income by choosing to receive salary as a combination of cash and approved benefit items that are paid out of a person’s pre-tax salary.

If you are considering applying for employment at KEMH, it is important you are aware that we are committed to the care and protection of children and young people. This commitment is reflected in our recruitment and selection processes. Referee checking will be undertaken as a pre-requisite to every recommendation for appointment to assist in the assessment of whether or not an applicant is of good character and suitable for employment at KEMH. Potential employees are also subjected to rigorous criminal record screening through the Federal Government agency, CrimTrac.
