  • Short Term
  • Accommodation package included
  • Are you an experienced midwife looking for a new adventure?
  • Would you like to work with an experienced and supportive maternity team on a short term basis?
  • Well, Puawai Aroha Maternity Unit, Hauora Tairāwhiti might just be the right place for you. We currently have short term contracts available.

    We are able to offer short term contracts which include accomodation for you and your whanua. The FTE is negotiable to provide the ideal work / life balance enabling you to enjoy all the Tairāwhiti region has to offer, while providing maternity care to a community like no other!

    If successful you would be working in partnership with the women of Tairāwhiti and their whānau alongside their LMC's. We provide primary and secondary care within a collegiate and supportive environment.

    We have approximately 700 births per year in our culturally rich region.

    Puawai Aroha Maternity Unit boasts a relaxed atmosphere with five birthing suites and eight ante / postnatal rooms which are well resourced to provide high quality and safe care from our friendly team.

    These suites / rooms are situated together so you will be able to work across all areas of your scope of practice which would enable you to meet all your recertification requirements along.

    We also run an antenatal clinic catering for the needs of pregnant women referred to us for a consultation or transfer of care from the LMC to our secondary care services.

    We currently have a team of 5 obstetricians’ and a NNU which is attached to our maternity unit. We all work closely together so that we can improve our outcomes for mums and babies and have strong organisational values of :

    Whakarangatira (to enrich)

    Awhi (to support)

    Kotahitanga (togetherness)

    Aroha (Compassion)

    Whāia te hauora i Roto i te Kotahitanga - A Healthier Tairāwhiti by working together".

    Tairāwhiti provides a work / life balance which other regions in New Zealand envy. With beautiful beaches and landscapes a matter of minutes from work, we have a particularly outgoing team who enjoy nature and what our region has to offer.

    So you may come for the midwifery but find the additional bonus of the great lifestyle Gisborne has to offer.

    You would have one day to orientate to the unit and meet the team then work 3 to 4 rostered shifts that week. You may like to come for more than one week.

    During this time we will fund accomodation for you and your whanau too if they are joining you. You may even find that you like Tairawhiti so much you decide to apply for a permamant position or just use this to experience midwifery in a beautiful part of New Zealand.

    All applicants will be subject to a police check, which you may already have and can provide evidence of this. You must have a current APC and registered with the NZ Midwifery Council.
