It is extremely stressful to work as a ward clerk in the Adult Emergency Department as a Ward Clerk. It is a busy and high pressure environment. There are multiple instances of work place bullying from senior and other colleagues. Also there are cameras in the Level 2 staff room toilets.

A very busy role as dealing with staff entering the Auckland District Health board and needing to check if they have been vaccinated for MMR, and other vaccinations. People phoning in inquiring about their immunity and what their status is. Lab forms emailed to them to have the required vaccinations done before beginning their role with the "Auckland "District Health Board. There were procedures we had to follow and it was done in parts till the whole process was finalized by nursing staff as they did followup them. The most enjoyable part of the job was my team. Having a laugh and conversing with them on a day to day basis. I learned alot in this role about vaccinations and how important it is to be immunized against certain diseases.

Unfortunately, the Health & Safety department went through restructuring of the entire administration team. .

As being part of a very big hospital, it is always very busy running at 90-100% on daily basis.

Patient confidentiality and privacy is top priority. Management is very approachable and professional. Being part of such a large organisation we have lot of different cultural background people to work with and it is very nice to know about other cultures.


The most enjoyable part is when we work together as a team to provide the best to our patients and visitors.
Pros
flexiable hours
Cons
Travelling

Great clinical and cultural diversity and lots of option to advance your knowledge. They work to take care of the staff (excluding compensation)

Overall the organization lacks vision and foresight. Practice operations is like stepping back in time 20 years. There is lack of unity within the hospital with each directorate acting seemingly autonomously.

I am personally enjoying the help of the organization when it comes to career progression. ADHB helps the staff to go to the higher level in their career by helping them with their portfolio and encouraging them to attend study days and trainings. And the pay fair wages.

The day would begin by gathering requirements concerning analysis for a user. Then using various tools, information would be extracted and using your knowledge we would isolate trend and report on findings. Liaising with the user on findings is essential since they would know the inner working and what ti expect. Finally, an end product which communicates your findings is necessary.

How to communicate effectively, asking the right questions and being curious are the keys things I personally, have learned.


Upper management was effective with their communication; ensuring the team understands expectations, priorities, and means of progression.


Co-workers were supportive and always enthusiastic.


The hardest part of the role was not being able to be part of every project or initiative. Being the type of person who constantly looks to engage and develop, this was especially hard since there is always work happening.


The most enjoyable part of the job would be the communication and analysis. I was able to be curious, learn the system, how it worked, engage with many hospital staff members - both clinical and nonclinical.
Pros
Lunches, ability to work with many staff
Cons
Demanding users

Working at the Soap Factory was good as a side job. I was able to earn while studying and also meet new people. Working here allowed me to work in a team environment, packing and labelling with great demand. I learned different ways of packing things faster and just how to keep up with the demands of the order.
Pros
Appreciation awards
Cons

Overall an interesting and enjoyable but not totally rewarding workplace.
The scope of work was demanding but allowed for development of new skills and knowledge.
