  • Do you like a challenge? Do you prefer not to be “tied to a desk” all day? Do you have flexible availability 24 hours?
  • Do you have previous experience and are familiar with the health industry, or do you feel your work skills could translate to our Emergency Department where you would be interviewing and registering patients arriving in our ED by ambulance?
  • Do you have experience working with people from diverse groups have excellent communication skills and can work in a fast paced environment?
  • Do you have high quality communication and data entry skills?
  • If you answered yes…..please apply for this interesting and challenging administrative position in our Emergency Department located in the Darlinghurst/Kings Cross area.

The vacancy is open to Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens who hold a valid New Zealand passport, and Australian permanent residents.
