Welcome new Community Services and Business Administration students

Recently, we welcomed our new students completing their Certificate II in Community Services and Business Administration to Northern Health.

Northern Health Chief Executive Siva Sivarajah, and Executive Director People and Culture, Michelle Fenwick, would like to personally welcome the new students and wish them exciting times ahead at Northern Health.

“It’s great to welcome these new students to Northern Health and see their eagerness to learn everything there is to know about business and community,” Michelle said.

“This program delivers real time business administrative experience, and provides recognised business experience and qualifications for one of the largest employers of Melbourne’s north – Northern Health.”

Alysha Spencer, Advisor – Organisational Capability, said the program started when Michelle had a conversation in late 2016 about youth employment and training opportunities in Melbourne’s North. Fast forward to 2019, and Northern Health has a youth employment and training program in place for the third year running.

“These students join us from various high schools in our catchment area. Their focus is to achieve their goals whilst completing their Certificates,” Alysha said.

Our eight students will be working with us across Broadmeadows Hospital, Bundoora Centre and Northern Hospital Epping every Thursday and Friday.

Students will be working across different areas including Health Information Services, Patient Quality Experience, Outpatients, Neonatal Unit, Engineering Services and Broadmeadows administration.

Please say hello to our students if you see them around the various campuses and make them feel welcome.
