5 Thoughts on “Life West Coast Private Hospital in Vredenburg, Western Cape”

  • Good day, I would like to know if the hospital employs nurse students temporarily. I am a third year nurse student and in need of a holiday job for December. Any other job for casual workers are also acceptable. I would also want to know if there is any agencies available in Vredenburg that would make this application possible.

    I would really appreciate your help.

    Thanks in advance.
