The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network (SCHN) is seeking an enthusiastic and dynamic perfusionist with a passion for paediatrics to join our team.  Due to the expansion of our programme, an increasing caseload and the development of cardiac transplantation and ECMO retrieval services, we are excited to announce a vacancy for a permanent full-time position.

As the successful candidate, you will join a high performing team that carries out approximately 400 paediatric bypass cases annually, with an increasing percentage of neonatal operations.  The SCHN provides a comprehensive service for Sydney and the State of NSW and you will be engaged in a diverse and challenging mix of cases for all forms of congenital heart disease.  You will also be involved in an established, collaborative, multidisciplinary ECMO program for both cardiac and non-cardiac indications, including a retrieval service from remote locations.  In both the bypass and ECMO settings, you will be using the most contemporary state-of-the-art equipment and resources.  Continuing education will be supported with both professional development leave and financial assistance.

Previous experience in paediatric perfusion would be a strength, however, it is not essential.  If you are a motivated, fast-paced learner with a strong desire to enhance your perfusion skills, this represents a fantastic opportunity for you.  Current certification with the Australasian, European, UK, Canadian or American Board of Perfusion with a minimum of three years post-certification experience is required.
