Registered Midwives

Permanent

Full time and part time positions available

Job Number: WAI04945

We are one of the largest hospitals on one campus in the Southern Hemisphere… but we are also a close-knit community with great staff support.

Waikato Hospital is a tertiary facility and we have over three and a half thousand births per year. As well as caring for women in the Waikato we are the referral centre for places like Gisborne and Rotorua so we see a lot of women with complex pregnancies.

We have an energetic team of midwife managers and medical staff, as well as a supportive team of midwifery leaders who help your transition to a new place of work. We are all about making this a great place to come to work every day – yes, it is busy, but with funding for 15 new FTE midwifery positions we are well on the way to making this a very well-staffed tertiary unit.

We provide rotation through all our inpatient areas: birthing suite, women’s assessment unit, ante and post-natal wards and then the choice to “home base’ in one area or continue to rotate. We have a specialist perinatal loss midwife and lactation consultants to support you in your day-to-day work, and educators to help with learning needs, whether that be figuring out how we do things here, or gaining a post-graduate qualification.

The Waikato is a great place to work and live, with plenty of recreational activities, relatively affordable housing, great shopping and few traffic issues. We are close to other major cities for world-renown concerts and events, and we host many world-class sports events here. We have superb restaurants and plenty of walking and cycling tracks. We are close to Raglan (45 minutes) for brilliant surfing, cafés and chilling, and not too much further to the Coromandel coast with pristine waters and golden sand beaches.

Our DHB provides lots of work perks such as discounted gym memberships and health services, and provides a workplace support service to make working here a great decision.

Come join us!
