Based at Wellington Hospital, our Haematology Department is currently looking for part time Registered Medical Laboratory Technicians / Scientists (7 shifts or 56 hours per fortnight). Our laboratory operates 24/7 and the rostered hours for this position would follow a pattern of:

There are numerous advantages for staff employed to participate in this roster. Working 7 instead of 10 shifts in a fortnight provides a work/life balance, especially suited for families, childcare, study or other pursuits. Evening and weekend work attracts penal rates and cumulatively, the income for this role works out to be greater than an equivalent full-time role (80 hours) working during routine hours. In addition a significant amount of shift leave is accumulated for working evening and post-midnight shifts.
