Are you a skilled Anaesthetic Technician who’s seeking a new career challenge or a change of pace in your day-to-day life? Here at the Southern District Health Board we have everything you need and more on offer, all you have to do is come on over!

 

Our team of Anaesthetic Technicians are truly dedicated to their craft, working hard to ensure the best possible care and support is provided for the patient, their families and the team they are working alongside. We value those who can balance professionalism and light-heartedness, communicate effectively and appreciate the importance of the team-based dynamic.

Mō te tūranga | About the role

We offer a dynamic and varied work environment across the board, with the opportunity to work in multidisciplinary teams servicing a vast geographical service delivery area with a diverse patient population. No two days are ever the same here, and with our service operating on a 24/7 basis with on-call rostering, you will certainly be kept on your toes! As an experienced AT, you know the drill. Working alongside our Anaesthetists, as well as Doctors and Nurses, you’ll assist with surgeries, and the odd bit of Operating Theatre set up. You may even help administer blood pressure and other medications on occasion too. Working on a rotating roster basis, you’ll find shifts are usually around 8-10 hours, so along with a stable full-time work structure you’ll have plenty of room to get out and do life. We’re after passionate, conscientious workers who are excited by a challenge and always keen to lend a hand. Sound like you? It goes without saying that an opportunity such as this lends itself to enhancing professional development and a well-rounded skill set.
