    The Children’s Haematology Oncology Centre (CHOC) is one of two tertiary paediatric oncology centres in New Zealand. We provide inpatient and outpatient care for up to 50 new diagnoses per year.

    We seek to provide clinical excellence with support for our nurses with their professional development and ongoing learning needs.

    If you believe you could make a positive contribution to the lives of children and their families, we would like to hear from you.

    This role requires:

  • excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to engage well
  • effective problem solving and decision making skills
  • ability to work efficiently and effectively in a multidisciplinary team
  • able to work well under pressure
  • initiative and a proactive approach to work
