CQUniversity has formed a partnership with Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service to facilitate and grow Human Resources studies at the Bundaberg Campus.

HR students will enjoy a close working relationship with Bundaberg's largest employer, thanks to the partnership.

CQUni HR student Ryan Paul says that opportunities to meet local professionals and practitioners in the HR field are invaluable for building up knowledge of the local industry.

"It was inspiring to meet reps from the Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service and find out about our largest employer," Mr Paul says.

School of Business and Law Lecturer Tim Whan said WBHHS representatives Peter Heinz, Executive Director HR Services, Marie-Gaye Harvey, Director Employment Relations, Recruitment and Workforce Services, and Josephine Leveritt, Director Legal Services, spent nearly two hours with CQUni students explaining their mission, vision and purpose and developing the relationship with the School of Business and Law.

"Students are able to bring these opportunities back to their peers and develop a special relationship with the Wide Bay’s biggest employer," Mr Whan says.

"Some of our students may aspire to work at a regional health service where no two days will ever be the same."

The Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service’s purpose is to deliver quality health services focused on patients and families that reflect the needs of the Wide Bay community.

CQUniversity School of Business and Law is committed to providing opportunities at undergraduate level that enable students to realise all the wonderful possibilities post-graduation.
