“I go home at the end of every day feeling like I have made a difference to not only our clients, but to the staff. I love the diversity of my role, and love the kind and supportive people I work with. Every day is different and has its new, exciting challenges.
“It really is a diverse job and I’m a bit of an office all-rounder. I could be doing anything from sorting out rosters, covering outpatient clinics, managing phone calls, ordering equipment and tracking approvals, assisting staff with HR/payroll enquiries, supporting a team of seven admin staff and helping with recruitment interviews; to organising car cleans and services for our fleet vehicles.
“If you have a passion for helping people, have a diverse range of administration skills and are compassionate and hardworking, I really recommend joining WSLHD – you will find like-minded people and discover value in what you do.”
