Work and life balance

Flexible Working

Our flexible working conditions help you balance your work and home life. Many of our positions are full time, part time, casual or even night shift work and there is the ability for flexible rostering in many areas. Another example of flexibility is our casual bank, offering a range of roles where you choose your work shifts using an electronic booking system. The casual bank electronic booking system is available to Nurses, Midwives, Theatre Technicians, Ward Clerks, Food Services employees, Switchboard Operators and many more.
