Current Vacancies

Registered Practice Nurse

We are on the hunt for that special Registered Nurse to join our motivated and supportive team. 

It is an opportunity to be part of our proactive and innovative rural GP practice who care for a wide and diverse patient population.

We are a teaching practice that encourages ongoing learning at all levels.  We love creative ideas for delivering high quality health care that meet our patient’s needs.  We are part of a community and work with the community to improve health and wellness for all.

Our ideal candidate

We are ideally looking for someone who has 3-5 years of experience in a general practice or community setting – but most of all we want an RN with an enthusiasm for nursing in a close knit community, a ‘can do’ team based attitude and a willingness to grow and learn new skills and gain higher qualifications.

If you are an authorised vaccinator and/or smear taker we see that as a bonus.

Being a fluent te reo Māori speaker, living at the southern end of the lake or having demonstrated experience in achieving equitable outcomes for patients will just increase our interest in you.

A high level of computer and technology literacy is a must, as are strong verbal and written communication skills.

You must be a New Zealand registered RN with a current NZ Annual Practicing Certificate and have the right to live and work in NZ

Shortlisted candidates will be requested to declare their COVID vaccination status.  Candidates who decline to complete a declaration will be considered to be unvaccinated.  Vaccination status will be reveiwed as part of the final selection decision.

The role

This is a permanent role with up to 5 days/40 hours per week available by negotiation.

Salaries are at the NZNO Primary Care MECA rates
