Using the latest in aviation, medical and communications technology, our Queensland section delivers extensive primary health care and 24-hour aeromedical emergency service, from nine strategic bases to those who live, work and travel throughout the State.

About the Role

Reporting to the Base Services Coordinator, this is a varied 'all rounder' role that will see you responsible for providing quality support within the administration functions of the office to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of services to internal and external customers. 

Your day-to-day duties will include, but not be limited to:
