Anaesthetic Technicians

Anaesthetic Technicians – Anaesthesia Service

  • Dunedin and Southland Hospitals
  • Permanent or Fixed Term, full time or part time positions available


Stuck in limbo? The year that was may have left you itching for change… So, if it’s time to reinvigorate your work life, here’s your chance.


Right now, Southern DHB are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working Anaesthetic Technicians and have roles to fill in both their Dunedin and Invercargill hospitals. Interested?


Go low for career highs


Whether you’re just starting out in your career and craving some action, or have more experience under your belt, these roles offer the dynamic work fit you’re looking for. With both hospitals servicing a broad catchment area of the South Island, you’ll have great exposure to a large amount of trauma cases, plus the ability to rotate across a wide variety of specialities within the hospital. You’ll enjoy the latest, state of the art equipment and find plenty of opportunity to grow your skills – these are teaching hospitals, so you can benefit from the wisdom of senior AT’s or impart your own knowledge to help mentor the younger team.


The day to day


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? 


Down here, things are looking up


We have a feeling you’re going to like it here. Maybe you’re local to Southland and will join the fun, tight-knit family at Invercargill hospital. With a supportive team who can’t wait to see you thrive, the smaller hospital offers great exposure to a variety of specialties and cases, and every opportunity to progress your career.


Or perhaps you’ll join us in Dunedin and launch into the challenging world of a busy paediatrics department, as well as all the variety and trauma cases that come with being the primary hospital in the wider region. You’ll learn fast and rarely be bored. Plus, with a brand-new hospital in the works, before you know it, we’ll be in facilities as top-of-the-line as the equipment we use!


They say a change is as good as a rest – but you can save the relaxation for your days off, as you’ll catch all the action here at SDHB! If you’re looking to breathe life back into your career with an exciting change, let’s talk.


Closing Date: Open. 


Please note that we may begin shortlisting as we receive applications and could withdraw the advertising at any time.
