Administrator - Lakes District Hospital, Queenstown

  • Permanent part-time position 0.5FTE
  • Includes evenings and weekends


About Us

Our newly upgraded 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, these busy and varied roles 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 as you’ll be working with these on a daily basis.


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, theres skiing on the slopes of the Remarkables and Coronet Peak.


The salary for this position is between $45,580 and $53,259 pro-rata per annum and will be based on relevant experience and qualifications.


Closing Date: Wednesday, 15 January 2020
