Healthcare Assistant

Thank you for taking the time to apply to work as a Healthcare Assistant in our busy agency!

It’s important you know we are a Nursing Agency, not an actual facility, and employ staff on a temporary casual basis. (Please note: We cannot help with permanent positions and visas. Do not apply if you are not legally able to work in New Zealand).

The way we operate is that you update us multiple times each week via our app and advise us what your availability is for the days ahead. Then when hospitals and rest homes call us for staff, we get in touch with you. In some instances, you may only get 30 minutes notice to go to work, but often you are told the day before or booked in advance. It always changes, which is a great part of the role – no two days are the same!
