We have full-time and part-time opportunities available. Hours are rostered and rotating including weekends and evenings.

To be considered for this role you will need to be able to demonstrate that you:

  • Have an attention for detail and accuracy, and enjoy working in a highly structured and high pressure environment
  • Have good computer literacy and excellent data entry skills
  • Can perform duties under supervision and meet deadlines
  • Are team focused
  • Understand the importance of following directions to optimise and prioritise workflow to meet the service requirements of both the company and clients
  • Are conscientious and responsible
  • Have good analytical and problem solving skills
