Details: Do you like a challenge and want to be a key part of a high performing team who work to support a safe and vibrant city? Then this opportunity is for you!

The Canberra Hospital Expansion Project Team is responsible for the planning and delivery of a new Critical Services Building on Canberra Hospital campus.

The Project will deliver state-of-the-art facilities, including a new emergency department; intensive care unit; operating theatres (including hybrid theatres and interventional radiology suites); a coronary care unit; cardiac catheterisation and electrophysiology laboratories; and an inpatient unit.

At over $600 million, the Project represents the most significant investment in Canberra and will create a future-proofed acute services facility around which future developments on campus will be planned. It represents a generational opportunity for Canberra Hospital to position itself as a leading player in the delivery of acute healthcare services in Australia and the world. It will deliver world-class facilities that respond to contemporary and forward-thinking models of care and will attract the best and brightest clinical staff from Australia and around the world to Canberra Hospital.

As part of the CHE Project, the Territory is required to provide new signage and wayfinding for all areas within the Project as well as across the hospital campus to ready the new Critical Services Building for operation. The wayfinding and signage works will require amendments to existing signage inside buildings and signage located to external areas and pedestrian pathways. Major Project Canberra (MPC) will work closely with Canberra Health Services (CHS), ACT Health Directorate (ACTHD) and Tier 1 Contractor for the Canberra Hospital Expansion (CHE) Project to coordinate the wayfinding and signage activities.

To be successful in this role, you will ideally have demonstrated experience developing and implementing design/wayfinding interfaces across existing operational environments. The successful candidate should also have proven ability to deliver projects within time, cost and scoping targets. The successful candidate will be required to communicate effectively and work collaboratively with all stakeholder groups to ensure the wayfinding and signage solutions deliver on the functional and operational requirements of the hospital.

The ACT Public Service supports workforce diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive workplace. As part of this commitment, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with disability, culturally diverse people and those who identify as LGBTIQ are encouraged to apply.
