Core Midwife – Maternity (Wairau Hospital)

  • Bring your midwifery skills to sunny Blenheim
  • Two permanent part-time positions available
  • Join our friendly and supportive team at Wairau Hospital in Blenheim 

About the roles

We are looking for two NZ registered midwives, with loads of passion and commitment, to join our maternity team at Wairau Hospital.

We have the following permanent part-time positions available:

  • Working 48 hours a fortnight as rostered (0.6FTE)
  • Working 64 hours a fortnight as rostered (0.8FTE)

Please indicate if you have a preference for either position, or if you wish to be considered for both, in your covering letter.

We have approximately 500 births a year and we can promise that the role will be busy and varied – so no two days will be the same. 

We are an enthusiastic and friendly team with a commitment to providing childbearing women with optimal healthcare through women-centred and appropriate clinical assessment, planning, intervention, evaluation and education.  

About you

You will be a high performing midwife with total commitment to women centred and culturally respectful care. You will have excellent time management and organisational skills as well as the ability to work as part of a team and contribute to the broader organisational health care objectives. 

What we offer

We provide a great place to work with professional development opportunities, job security and workplace wellness programmes.

We currently have funding available to support Australian graduate midwives to become registered in New Zealand by participating in the Midwifery First Year of Practice Training Programme and completing the Overseas Competence Programme. This is available till 30 June, so if you are an Australian midwife keen to make the move to New Zealand now is the time.
