We have exciting opportunities for Registered Midwives to join our core midwifery team. Working within the Wairarapa DHB you will become part of an enthusiastic, dynamic and committed team of health workers providing an innovative approach to healthcare, with the bonus of a healthy balanced lifestyle and opportunities for professional development.

The Wairarapa has a proven track record of developing innovative models of care through collaboration of primary and secondary health providers. Our maternity service provides care for women in the Wairarapa region with just under 500 births per annum. Midwives have the opportunity to work across their scope of practice by, providing care to ante and postnatal inpatients and working alongside their Midwife LMC colleagues to provide secondary intrapartum care.

These are casual positions working 0 – 80 hours per fortnight, as and when required. Applicants must be available at short notice to cover any shift, including weekends and nights.

We want to hear from you if you have a passion to provide midwifery care in partnership with other care providers, and you want to work in a friendly and supportive environment providing both primary and secondary care to patients. You will need to be registered with the Midwifery Council of New Zealand and hold a current Annual Practising Certificate.
