What we need
Whakatane Hospital is a beautiful campus situated at Stewart and Garaway Streets in Whakatane; the hospital is operated by the Bay of Plenty District Health Board. To keep the campus to the standard all patients, visitors and the local community have come to expect we need someone to take control of mowing lawns, doing the gardens and generally keeping the exterior of the buildings clean and tidy.
Currently there is a carefully planned programme to ensure all these things take place but from time to time there are extraordinary events and we will need you to respond quickly and efficiently without being ‘precious’ about the tasks that need doing.
What we don’t want
We don’t want someone who is afraid to muck in and get their hands dirty, even when it isn’t really their responsibility and someone who cannot respond with urgency to immediate work requests
What’s important to us
It is very important to us that you are a ‘team player’ and can turn your hand from lawn mowing, to gardening to picking up rubbish to washing buildings… so everyone can be proud of the Whakatane hospital all the time.
Why should you bid?
This is a unique opportunity to play an important role in the Whakatane community. The hospital is a very important contributor to the health, well-being and employment in the Whakatane area. You will be integral to providing a hospital that is fit for purpose and that everyone can be proud of.
