Anaesthetic Technicians - Dunedin Hospital

  • Permanent or Fixed Term positions available with negotiable FTE

 

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!

 

About us

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. If these values resonate with you, you’ll fit right in.

 

About the opportunity

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.

 

Location, Location, Location!

Now to the city itself, Dunedin offers the opportunity to have the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of. Boasting excellent education and restaurants, competitive costs of living and a beautiful coastline, life can be as relaxed or as energetic as you want. Our team enjoy the short commute to work, leaving ample time for what matters to you most. Add to this the close proximity to some of New Zealand’s most famous scenery and holiday destinations (think Queenstown, Wanaka and Milford Sounds to name but a few!) you can go from seaside to ski-slopes in a matter of hours.

Too good to be true? We assure you, you can have it all here.

 

You must be eligible or already hold registration with the Medical Sciences Council of New Zealand and hold a current Annual Practicing Certificate.

 

Closing Date: Open
