  • 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

    This is an exciting opportunity working in a unique part of the health sector, where although you are not working as part of a DHB, you are still caring for people and making a huge difference to patient outcomes.

    There is a lot more to being a nurse at NZBS other than just taking blood. Dealing with primarily well people gives a different perspective to a working day.

    The variety that comes with the various types of collection activity and locations that we work in as well as the therapeutic services that we provide to patients, means that no two days are the same at NZBS.

  • Whether you are interested in developing your clinical skills and experience in therapeutic procedures such as collection of stem cells and plasma exchange procedures;
  • your leadership skills coordinating our collects; or your coaching and training and development skills, inspiring our staff to be the best they can be, NZBS has fantastic opportunities for everyone.

    About you

    As our donors regularly go out of their way to give up their time to donate blood, great customer service is key to ensuring they have an amazing donation experience that encourages their continued support.

    So to be successful in this role you'll be a great communicator with good written and verbal skills, vital for reassuring the donor every step of the way.

    We welcome enquiries from experienced Registered Nurses who will utilise their well-developed health assessment, critical thinking and reflective practice skills to contribute to all aspects of the collection of blood products and donor health education at our mobile and donor room collects.

    A comprehensive induction programme, training and PDRP available. Please note that flexibility to work varying days and hours will be required.

    In addition, you will need :

  • A current NZ Practising Certificate as a Registered Nurse with the Nursing Council of NZ or Midwifery Council of NZ
  • Relevant experience as a Registered Nurse
  • If this role sounds like you and you are self-motivated, get the best out of people and able to communicate on all levels, then we would like to hear from you.

    The NZ Blood Service is part of the Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021 (Health Order) effective on 25 October 2021 requiring employees to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 by 1 January 2022.

    It is therefore a condition of employment that you are vaccinated against Covid-19. The vaccine is to keep you safe and also to endeavour to protect others against the potential transmission of Covid-19.
