The success of Animal Health Australia (AHA) depends largely on its ability to harness appropriate human resource skills and apply them to the achievement of agreed outcomes.
Animal Health Australia works with its 34 Members to maintain and improve Australia’s favourable animal health status, to ensure the viability of Australia’s livestock and aquatic industries.
Within the framework of a not-for-profit company, AHA manages more than 60 national programs that improve animal and associated human health, biosecurity, market access, livestock welfare, productivity, and food safety and quality.

Working with us
AHA is led by an independently selected Board of Directors responsible to our Members and staffed by a dedicated team working in our Canberra office.
We’re a relatively small team committed to delivering outputs from a range of very different national projects, from the minutiae of national emergency management planning to the creative delivery of feedback and reporting mechanisms that suit all people working with all types of animals in Australia—farm livestock and aquatic animals to wildlife and exhibition animals, as well as companion and sporting animals.
Our collaborative, inclusive environment makes every day here a chance to learn through others—simply by working together.
To strengthen our busy team, we seek people who want a career with responsibility, complexity and scope.
If a fast-paced work environment inspires and motivates you, you’ll find ample opportunity to contribute and develop for years to come. Unfortunately, we have a low churn rate new career opportunities arise frequently and employees are encouraged to increase the breadth and depth of their knowledge.
We encourage you to take a look at what we have to offer.
