Based at our busy Underwood hospital south of Brisbane’s CBD, no two days will be the same.

  • A person who has strong communication skills with proven ability to work in a large team with different personalities, work styles and methods.

  • A person who is genuinely adaptable and has experience in change and project management with a process improvement focus - we’ve had to change a whole lot of things over the last 12 months and foresee ongoing change an adaptation to improve our workplace.
