About our Surgical Ward at Dandenong

  • Post Graduate Studies in a relevant field will be well regarded

What’s in it for you?

This is a fantastic opportunity to step into a key leadership role or to further extend your management experience. You’ll work in a supportive and collaborative environment, offering avenues to further develop your leadership and management skills.

In addition, you will have access to benefits including salary packaging options that increase your take-home pay, access to onsite discounted staff car parking and gym (only where relevant), uniform (only where relevant) and a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
