What career opportunities exist at HealthCare NZ
Direct support roles
As a Support Worker – you are the face and heart of our business. The work is varied and opportunities exist across a range of different specialties including Mental Health, Community Health & Rehabilitation, Complex Services, Disability Support and Social Services. It all depends on what you’re passionate about!
A variety of opportunities exist within the organisation for nurses and registered health professionals, whether that be working directly in the community, or as part of our clinical quality team. Many of our nurses have an additional scope of practice, approved by ACC as specialists in injury assessment and management because we are a contracted supplier for ACC. As a business we participate in the Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP) programme led by the Christchurch District Health Board (CDHB) to support graduate nurses with professional development to transition from graduate to competent Registered Nurse.
