Trainee Sterile Services Technician
- Permanent, 1 FTE (40 Hours per week), working a variety of shifts
Our Sterile Services team is responsible for the processing, cleaning and sterilisation of all instruments and equipment used in our operating theatres at Southland Hospital and other clinical areas including Lakes District Hospital. In addition to sterilising, we identify, pack and label instruments, hardware and equipment.
An opportunity exists for a Trainee Sterile Services Technician to join our team on a permanent, full time basis. This role is both physically and mentally demanding - you’re on your feet and often under pressure to complete complex tasks that require high levels of concentration and attention to detail - following instructions and documentation closely. You certainly won’t be parked behind a desk!
Key criteria that we’re looking for include:
- well-developed listening skills
- the ability to follow verbal and written instructions closely
- being able to undertake manual, dexterous work
- being methodical and remaining calm under pressure
- someone who knows and understands the importance of teamwork
Your attitude, approach and good work ethic is what will stand you in good stead when being considered for this position.
This isn’t just ‘a job’. This is a role where the very small things that you do, matter greatly. We’d invite you to read the position description carefully and apply, addressing the competencies required for the role, in your application.
Please note: applicants should apply with the understanding that weekend and evening shift work is a requirement.
Closing Date: Sunday 1 March 2020
