About the role

Client Coordinators work with a team of professional people engaged in assessment of the competence of facilities offering services in Imaging and Sleep Disorders Services. You will initially be trained in predominantly one of these activities and then be cross trained into other areas of accreditation.

You will be responsible for managing client relationships, understanding accreditation criteria, organising and leading assessment teams. You will be conducting on-site assessments at laboratories with the support of technical experts. Duties also include the preparation of technical reports, follow-up of matters arising from assessments and provision of advice to technical experts, clients and the public on NATA’s policies and technical requirements. 

This role will require the need to work outside standard office hours within the Sleep Disorders Services area. Due to the nature of the program you will be required to attend assessments during the evening. Additional information will be provided during the interview stage.
