Remuneration and Engagement Conditions
The Fellowships are honorary positions within the Sydney Eye Hospital because the Foundation pays the remuneration and associated costs for each Fellow, not the hospital.
The current remuneration (which is taxable under Australian Income Tax Law) is set at $54,000 per annum. In addition, there is an allowance of $1,000 per Fellowship to cover certain registration costs that are imposed by Immigration, AHPRA and RANZCO. These amounts are subject to review.
Each Fellow will receive four weeks paid annual leave and timing will be dependent on approval from the responsible Head of Department.
The Foundation provides the Fellows with its own Wi-Fi network to be able to undertake work and research exercises in a quiet and secure environment. The hospital’s extensive library provides current and relevant biomedical information to enhance and support patient care, education and research.
The Foundation also provides the Fellows with accounting support to complete their taxation returns at the end of their 12-month Fellowships.
Fellows will be required to work evenings and weekends or public holidays depending on their rosters.
Performance appraisals are carried out and Fellowships can be terminated on poor performance.
