The Team: What we do

Our Clinical Physiologist team are a small, enthusiastic team that supports all things technical in the South Island’s largest Intensive Care Unit. Working in a seven day a week roster with out-of-hours on-call, we strive to be at the forefront of clinical practice and technologies to ensure our clinical teams are supported in delivering the best care to our patients. We’re also preparing to migrate our unit to a new facility within the brand-new Acute Services Building!

We’ve got some changes coming up within our team. These changes include a valued colleague going on parental leave and preparation is underway to migrate our unit to a new facility within the new Christchurch Hospital, Hagley Building. People interested in joining our team might include experienced Clinical Physiologists, Trainee Clinical Physiologists, or those wanting to train in this exciting field such as Nurses and Hospital Aides who have an equipment and technology interest.

First up, we’re recruiting to cover the parental leave vacancy. This role will commence in late April and continue through to January 2021. This is a great opportunity to dip your toe in and get some experience within our service.

Nurses, Hospital Aides or Allied Health Professionals keen to develop their interest in all things technical would be highly rated applicants. We’re also keen to get expressions of interest for longer term roles including senior positions with leadership components.

Part time roles will also be actively considered, especially where a complimentary role within the DHB is also undertaken.

Those who join the team for the long term will train to attain a certificate in Medical technology, Otago University which we will fund and support you through the training.

Your skills/experience will include the following:

  • Experience working in health, science and/or technologies
  • The ability to work within a multidisciplinary team, following the guidance of supervising staff and taking advantage of learning opportunities presented
  • A focus on quality improvement and customer satisfaction

Successful candidates will demonstrate a desire for ongoing development in your professional practice and technical skills and have the ability to communicate well and work closely with a multidisciplinary team.
