A very large organisation that strives to care for others and does it extremely well.
Project Lead (Current Employee) –  Heidelberg VIC8 November 2018
A typical day at work includes a lot of time at my desk writing up documents, attending meetings and assisting staff in achieving outcomes.
The most enjoyable part of the job is achieving goals and people seeing the value in what you do.

Advance Care Planning Department
Project (Former Employee) –  Heidelberg VIC24 July 2018
So many people leave unhappy. Don't do it!

A big department, unstable funding, and lots more make it an unhappy place to work. It's so sad to see so many talented people have bad experiences in this department. It's disappointing that a major hospital allows its staff to be treated in the way that they do.
Pros
Well paid
Cons
Impacts on mental health

Division 1 & 2 Nurse (Former Employee) –  Heidelberg VIC24 December 2017
I liked working on the wards here as everyone was extremely knowledgable about all aspects of healthcare and were very open with helping anyone in this profession, understand different health procedures and why they're done and how they're going to help the patient. Watching patients become well enough to return to their prior hospital stay was one of the best perks of the job.
Pros
fantastic learning experience
Cons
long hours
