Medical Laboratory Technician - Virology/Serology

Our Purpose: What We’re Here For

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you’re part of something very special. We’re world leaders in the delivery of integrated health care, and we’re always striving to Make It Better. From the carers on the front line working directly with patients and communities, to our talented support teams who enable that care, we plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. And we’re all about putting people at the heart of everything we do.

Our Culture: What Matters To Us

Ko Te Whatu Manawa Tangata

Putting people at the heart of all we do 

For us to continue putting our communities at the centre of our health system, we’re putting our own people at the centre of everything we do. Because health is ultimately all about people. What’s important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility that all our people take for delivering outcomes, and that we go about our work with integrity in all we do.

What matters to us is doing the right thing, valuing everyone, and being and staying well ourselves so we can care for our community.

The Role: What This Opportunity’s All About

At Canterbury Health Laboratories our Virology/Serology department is proud of its status as a leading edge specialist laboratory.

With involvement in both diagnostic testing and research, our preferred requirement is for a person with previous experience in molecular virology, serology or related science.

The role provides opportunities for professional development in both disciplines and you will be exposed to a variety of current day technologies and a wide spectrum of diagnostic Infectious Disease testing.

We want to hear from you if you’re a great team player and want to be part of our Virology/Serology experience. If you are passionate, motivated and adaptable you’ll have the chance to work in a welcoming and supportive environment with a highly experienced and dedicated team.
