Exciting and challenging role within Sterile Supply Services
Opportunity to provide direction to a critical service in the hospital
We have an exciting opportunity for an outstanding and highly motivated Technical Professional to become the Operations Team Leader in the Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) at Auckland City Hospital. A strong background in performance improvement and operational excellence is essential.
The Operations Team Leader is an important leadership role in one of the most critical departments at Auckland City Hospital. If you are looking to do your life’s best work come and join our team and make a difference.
CSSD is responsible for the disinfection and sterilisation of reusable medical devices. CSSD at Auckland DHB is currently the only central sterile supply department in New Zealand to be ISO 13485 accredited, utilising advanced sterilisation technology and training methodologies, combined with leading edge software, to provide comprehensive support to our customers.
The Department is responsible for the decontamination of instruments for 39 operating theatres, patient care areas and diagnostic and treatment areas from two sites - Auckland City Hospital in Grafton and Greenlane.
Reporting to the CSSD Manager the role is critical to the success of the above areas. The Operations Team Leader has four direct reports (Area Lead Coordinators) who each lead a team of over 70 Shift Coordinators and Technicians. They are supported by our Systems & Applications Team, Quality Team and Education & Training Team. There is also an Operations Team Leader who has responsibility for the Greenlane site.
The successful applicant will have a strong technical or theatre/operating room background, proven operational experience as well as having successfully led a large team. The ability to communicate effectively and lead change is essential, as is a desire and ability to act in the absence of the CSSD Manager.
An understanding of Quality Management Systems (such as ISO 13485 or 9000 & AS/NZ 4187 or other relevant International standards related to sterile processing) would be very advantageous as would knowledge of the ASNZS4187 standard.
