New graduate management trainees on board for 2021

A pandemic and state borders have not stopped this year’s graduate health management trainees joining Northern Sydney Local Health District for the next two years.

The two-year program has been created to establish tomorrow’s leaders in health management.

They will be provided opportunities to gain work experience in a number of areas including executive and operational management as well as finance.

Nina Trimboli has travelled across the Nullarbor from Perth to take up her position, while Anna Jamison joins the mainland after previously calling Tasmania home.

Meanwhile Chrystjan Bowers completes the trio from closer to home, making the commute from the Central Coast.

Nina, a qualified physiotherapist, said she was looking forward to continuing to help others, albeit from a different role.

I have always had a passion for health and helping communities; so it is a really attractive opportunity to be able to experience this area through a management perspective

Anna, who is on rotation at Hornsby, said she was looking forward to getting more experience in the hospital environment after originally completing a degree in microbiology.

“The first few days have been busy and very informative, I think there is a lot to gain from the orientation to see how all the different areas in the hospitals across the district are managed,” she said. 

“As I have little experience in the hospital environment I’ve learnt the importance of observing how things are run at the clinical level and being aware of how every department works together to make it all tick.”

Chrystjan’s experience since graduating with a degree in business analytics includes work at IBM and Tableau, but he said the programs opportunity to work alongside leaders was most exciting.

“Not many programs out there give you the chance to work with executives straight out of university, give you management experience, cover a masters and provide experience in the health industry,” he said.

“My first few days has increased my weekly step average and has been great so far.

“It is nice to learn about the district from different levels, locations and positions and getting insights and an understanding.”
