Watching for Jobs at the Calvary Adelaide Hospital Project – SA

In the ‘Watching for jobs …….’ series we are going to be running over Australian Mining and Construction projects all over the country.  In each post we will include an Overview of the project, a Location Profile, the Companies involved, the Occupations required, the skills / qualifications that will help you to get your foot in the door and the Enterprise Bargaining Agreements.  This will help you to stay in the loop and know how to skill up where needed.  The aim is to help you get yourself into the best position to land a start on the major sites and projects around Australia.

About the Calvary Adelaide Hospital

From the Link to the Calvary website

The largest private hospital ever built in South Australia – the $300 million Calvary Adelaide Hospital in Adelaide’s central business district – will commence construction immediately.

Calvary – one of Australia’s leading Catholic health, community and aged care providers which operates four hospitals in South Australia – said it had today signed a formal contract with the Adelaide-based developer, Commercial & General, and well-known construction company, John Holland Constructions, for the 12-storey, 350 bed, state-of-the-art facility, which paves the way for construction to start.

The new Calvary Adelaide hospital continues the work of the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary who have served the people of South Australia for over 100 years and is a statement of confidence in the South Australian economy and Calvary’s ongoing commitment to the long term health care needs of the people of Adelaide.

More than 500 jobs are expected to be created during construction of the Calvary Adelaide hospital.

When completed, the Calvary Adelaide hospital – to be built in Angas St next to the SA Police headquarters – will replace the current Calvary Wakefield Hospital in Wakefield Street, including its privately operated 24 hour emergency department, as well as accommodating the Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital at Walkerville.

Calvary Adelaide Hospital Enterprise Bargaining Agreements

An Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) is a collective industrial agreement between either an employer and a trade union acting on behalf of employees or an employer and employees acting for themselves.

At this stage of the project no EBA’s are available. As any EBA’s are released they will be updated into this article.

If you ever want to look up an EBA yourself – here’s the link.
