A world of careers at SNP
An organisation such as Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology is a
community in itself. Although it covers such a vast area- 3.5
million square kilometres-across Queensland, Northern New South
Wales and the Northern Territory, the SNP workforce is linked by
shared goals and experiences.
About 2500 people work for SNP, including just under 100
pathologists, specialists and general practitioners, together with
900 scientists and technicians, nearly 1000 patient services
personnel, including couriers and collectors, and about 400
administrative and support staff working in 22 laboratories and
more than 220 collection centres.
The world of Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology is made up of a wide
range of jobs from the most visible-collectors and couriers-to the
behind-the-scenes pathologists, scientists, laboratory technicians
and laboratory assistants. And behind this is the support staff
without whom, the organisation simply couldn't run-data entry
teams, technical support engineers, media/assay production staff,
quality control, doctor services, doctor's IT teams, database
control, patient services and the supply/purchase department.
Then there are the people who support the staff-accounts and
payroll, library, essential services, training and professional
development, and health and safety.
Many people have been with the company for 30 years, some for even
longer. They joined when Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology was in its
infancy not long after 1956, when Drs John Sullivan and Nick
Nicolaides started a small pathology practice to service local
families around Brisbane. Many people have moved through the
organisation over the decades handling a range of different jobs in
different areas. They know the practice inside out and have grown
with it over the years.
Now that Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology is part of the Sonic
Healthcare Group - the only truly global diagnostic pathology and
radiology organisation - staff have the opportunity to work across
Australia and overseas.
