Jobs that have RHWIS incentives should be easily identifiable in the job posting. If you are offered an an incentivised position, there will be an opportunity to discuss your incentives package with the relevant NSW Health agency.

Existing rural and regional workers may also be eligible for an incentives package and should discuss this with their manager.
