Life is a collection of small moments: meaningful moments, challenging moments, moments to remember. At SCDHB, we want to support our people to enjoy more of the moments that matter. Are you ready to join us?

Right now, we have multiple administrative opportunities here in Timaru for fast-movers who love a job with lots of variety. If you’re looking for a new challenge that will put your organisation and people skills to work, this is it.

Ideally you will be trained in various departments of the hospital and will provide annual and sick leave for the staff of those areas. As our hospital is a 24/7 organisation, some of our administration roles do work shifts – please clearly indicate in your application if you do not want to be considered for those shift areas.

You would be working with an enthusiastic bunch of colleagues who take considerable pride in being part of a team that contributes in some way toward helping those in the community who require medical assistance. You will need to be able to deal with an incredibly diverse range of people, staff, patients and their families - all of them needing your assistance.

In whichever role you find yourself, you’ll be in a busy role with a huge impact, so if you’re cool headed with a strong stomach and a passion for helping others, you’ll thrive.


The success factors for the role include:

  • Ability to work to deadlines
  • Ability to take direction well and work as a part of our team
  • A keen eye for detail and accountable for own work
  • Liaison with internal and external stakeholders of the SCDHB with a focus on excellent customer service and delivery
  • Maintains the strictest Confidentiality


So, if you can demonstrate well-practised computer skills with a track record of providing true customer-focused service then why not apply?
