Casual Administrator – Lakes District Hospital, Queenstown

On an as and when required basis

Monday to Sunday

About us

Lakes District Hospital is a busy facility, with an emergency department, general ward, radiology, maternity and outpatient departments. We are situated in Frankton, Queenstown – a busy recreational town for adventure sports, mountains, lakes and so much more.

About the opportunity

Located in the hub of clinical administration, this busy and varied role will often challenge your organisational skills with competing deadlines and conflicting priorities. You’ll be a positive communicator – both written and oral and be competent in MS Office Suite with particular focus on Word, Excel and Outlook. Experience using database systems and/or the capability to quickly pick these up is essential.

About you

As part of the administration team you will form part of the front line so your friendly, welcoming, resilient nature will be appreciated. A background in medical administration would be ideal but not essential. You’ll have a mature outlook, excellent relationship management skills and function well under the pressure that often occurs when dealing with the public in a health environment.

Some people find this kind of role challenging – but not you. You thrive on the pace and the challenge. In return, for the right person, we offer a supportive and friendly team, competitive remuneration and above all an excellent opportunity for fulfilling, part-time work.

Why Queenstown?

Lake Wakatipu, set against the dramatic Southern Alps and Queenstown, renowned for adventure sports, is also a base for exploring the region’s vineyards and historic mining towns. There’s bungy jumping off Kawarau Gorge suspension bridge and jet-boating on the Shotover and Dart rivers. In winter, there’s skiing on the slopes of the Remarkables and Coronet Peak.

The hourly rate currently for this casual position is between $22.81 and $26.49 and will be based on relevant experience and qualifications.

Closing date: Sunday, 29 November 2020.

Please note we may begin shortlisting as we receive applications and could withdraw the advertising at any time. If you’re interested, don’t delay applying!
