About the role
Working in a busy outpatient environment at Dunedin Hospital, this role will challenge your organisational skills with competing deadlines and conflicting priorities.
You will be ensuring the smooth running of the Southern Blood Cancer service by providing an efficient and timely administrative support function that is responsive and flexible to the changing needs of the service/organisation.
