Working for us


Our people are at the centre of our organisation – what they do helps drive and deliver the best value outcomes to our customers, our healthcare frontline teams and patients.

We work hard to attract, retain and develop talented people in a workplace focused on delivery, making a difference, and passionate about career and leadership development.

Our end-to-end employee experience is at the centre or what we do. Your relationship with us starts during recruitment and selection – it’s very much a two-way process. Our goal is to make this a positive, rewarding experience.

We want people to give all they have while they remain part of or whanau and, when the time is right and they leave us, we farewell them with so much more than what they arrived with.
