Administration Officer - Ward 8Med

Administration Officer – Ward 8Med

Dunedin Hospital


  • Casual and flexible ‘as and when required’ basis
  • Gain fantastic experience!


Applications are invited for a casual Administration Officer position in the vibrant and busy Medical Ward in Dunedin Hospital.


About the opportunity

As an Administration Officer, you will be carrying out a wide range of administrative and reception duties and providing essential support to other staff members within the team. Your administrative tasks will include but are not limited to answering phones, reception cover, maintaining patient information (both electronically and in hard copy), database maintenance and ordering supplies. It is essential that you are warm, welcoming and able to remain calm under pressure.


We are looking for a new team member to join us on a casual ‘as and when required’ basis to provide valuable annual leave or sick leave cover, or just when we are super busy and need an extra pair of capable hands. It is therefore important that you have a degree of flexibility and are able to pick up shifts often at short notice.


About you

You must be a team player with very good communication skills, who understands and appreciates the need for attention to detail.  You must also be comfortable interacting with a variety of people and attending to issues that arise – usually at the same time!   We ask that in your application you demonstrate how your previous work experience in administration and/or customer service roles has honed your ability to prioritise and juggle tasks, within demanding timeframes.


If you believe you have a positive, friendly, can-do attitude and a desire to contribute to the efficiency of the service then we would love to hear from you!
