Are you looking for an opportunity to utilise your excellent customer service skills and gain a new qualification in the Healthcare profession?

Medlab South provides high quality diagnostic pathology services to the community, healthcare professionals and their patients. Medlab South is owned by Asia Pacific Healthcare Group, a healthcare company committed to providing facilities and services that deliver exceptional care to its clients.

Our Patient Services Department is responsible for the collection of blood samples and handling contained specimens, i.e. human blood, faeces, urine, tissue etc from patients within the community and the hospital. These samples are then processed and tested in our state of the art medical laboratory.

We have a fixed term, part time vacancy of 50 hours per fortnight for 3 months, and a casual vacancy. Our Phlebotomists work collaboratively as part of a close-knit team to provide excellent front line collection services, while demonstrating behaviours that reflect our company values.
