Advance your


A life-changing day - every day of the week

For our surgical and perioperative care teams, every single day is make or break. Life or death. There’s no undo button, and no second chances.

Starting from the moment a patient is admitted, right through to the procedure itself and the post-op pain recovery and management, there are no supporting players here. Our surgeons, nurses and technicians strive to be the best they can be, working in a high-stakes environment where everybody relies on everybody else, and every second counts.

If you thrive under pressure, excel in collaborative teams, and live to change lives – we’re got a career for you in the theatre.



Maybe you’re a junior doctor with an eye to becoming a surgeon. Maybe you’re a passionate periop nurse or theatre technician looking to hone your skills.

Maybe you’re a registered nurse, or maybe you’ve just recently enrolled. Maybe you want to work your way towards a higher qualification, or train to be a leader in the periop space.

Whatever your background or ambitions, our operating theatres require a vast and diverse ensemble cast. Right now, we’re hiring:

  • Perioperative / Theatre Nurse (Registered or Enrolled)
    • Anesthetic Nurse
    • Scrub Scout
    • PACU (Post Anesthetic Care Unit) Nurse
