Some of the responsibilities of the role include:

  • Performing a range of diagnostic medical laboratory techniques;
  • Performing all tasks relevant to a particular scientific shift or a particular section of the laboratory as specified in departmental manuals;
  • Upholding quality standards within the laboratory by adhering to departmental quality system procedures;

About You

To be considered for these positions you will be degree qualified in Medical Laboratory Science or similar, with specific experience gained in both haemotology and transfusion. Recent graduates are welcome to apply, so long as they have studied both of these areas as part of their degree.

Importantly, you will have the demonstrated ability to work methodically and accurately, whilst prioritising your workload. You will be organised, have well-developed interpersonal and communication skills and be comfortable working both autonomously and as part of a team.
