Tell us about your career pathway.

After many years working in hospitality, I decided it was time for a change. I completed business and design courses at TAFE SA and applied for a position in SA Health. I wanted to work in administration management to leverage my highly organised nature and willingness to engage with people from diverse backgrounds and disciplines.

What does an average day look like?

Every day is different. I could be sitting on an interview panel looking for some of the best doctors to join the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network Obstetrics and Gynaecology or Paediatric teams, or I could be managing leave requests for medical staff and handling clinic and theatre amendments.

I perform many varied tasks from mandatory training and medical recruitment to rosters and professional development claims.

What do you love about your job?

I love that my job is constantly busy and keeps me on my toes. I want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care from the medical practitioners I assist in hiring.

I am proud to have been able to assist many junior training doctors who have completed many years of training to become staff specialists.

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because I know that the work I am performing is important, and I appreciate working with such a diverse group of passionate people.

What do you see are some of the benefits of working in the public sector?

One of the main benefits of working in the public sector is being able to progress to more senior positions. I enjoy working for the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network as it helps the community and has great working conditions.

Why have you chosen to work in South Australia?

I was born and bred in Adelaide and have never had the desire to leave this beautiful city and lifestyle to look for alternative employment.
