  • About New Zealand Blood Service

    New Zealand Blood Service (NZBS) has sole responsibility for collecting, processing and distributing blood in New Zealand. Through the generosity of our donors, we are able to help save lives through our blood, blood products and other services. At the end of the day, you know that you’ve contributed in some way to making a difference in someone’s life.

    Our shared values are at the heart of our organisation’s culture and guide our behaviour each and every day. They inspire us, motivate us and drive us to provide the very best service to the New Zealand public.

    About the role

    At NZBS, Donor Technicians work under the supervision of a Registered Nurse and are key members of the Collections team, undertaking venepuncture procedures related to blood collection and a number of administrative duties.

    As our donors are healthy and go out of their way to give up their time to donate blood, customer service is key to ensuring the donors are provided with a donation experience that encourages their continued support.

    The hours will generally be worked Monday to Friday, with some varying lengths of days so flexibility is required. Occasional weekend or statutory holiday duties may also be required.
