Ashford Hospital is calling for experienced staff to join their exceptional team.
This year we have had the pleasure of working with Ashford Hospital and getting to know all about how they operate.
Through creating content for them, we’ve had incredible access to the hospital, staff and culture.
We’ve been privy to exciting changes and improvements like Ashford’s new $33 million upgrade and we’ve gotten to know how well the staff cares for their patients.
We wanted to share this video we created to reach out to experienced staff to work across Perioperative care, Angiography and Critical care – perhaps it’s time for a career change?
Clinical Nurse and Orthopaedic Robotic Coordinator Kirsty Lea transferred into Perioperative Services during her graduate program and says working at Ashford has helped her to take her career to new levels.
“Working across Recovery and Anaesthetics, I have continued building my nursing skills learning to Scrub / Scout for Orthopaedics, gaining a Clinical Nurse position. I’ve recently been appointed as the Orthopaedic Robotic Coordinator working with surgeons using the Mako orthopaedic robot,” she says.
“I love working with a wide range of services and leading-edge technologies. I want to be able to offer our patients the best there is in medical advancements. I think I have the best job in the world; there’s always new opportunities.”
Michael Tiltman’s career as a Cardiac Nurse working in in the public sector and rural and remote hospitals led him to Ashford, initially working across the Cardiac Ward, Critical Care and Theatre.
As well as developing skills and driving his career, Michael says he loves working at Ashford for the culture and the camaraderie.
“We enjoy a great culture here at Ashford, with lots of opportunities for professional development – I’ve recently commenced a new role in Angiography,” he says. “I’m enjoying being a part of a caring environment that presents exciting learning opportunities and puts patient care at the forefront of all that we do.”
Having started at Ashford in 2010 on placement as a student Enrolled Nurse in the Cardiac Surgical Unit, Marty Jones won a permanent role in Marleston ward, working across Surgical and High Dependency.
He enjoys the genuine fulfilment he gets from caring for patients and working in a supportive environment.
“There’s nothing that can give you greater satisfaction than seeing a patient who is really sick getting better and knowing that you played a part in that recovery,” he says. “I’ve always felt supported by my colleagues and inspired to continue to advance my career. As a result I’m now undergoing training to complete my Registered Nursing qualification.”
Ashford Hospital is currently recruiting and looking for experienced staff to work across Perioperative Services, Critical Care and Angiography.
