We need you to care with us here at Waikato District Health Board

About the service

Waikato Hospital is a tertiary facility where we have over three and a half thousand births per year. As well as caring for women in the Waikato, we are also the tertiary hospital for the Midland region for women requiring complex care.

Why us

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 we are committed to making this a very well-staffed and well supported 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.

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.

We can offer you:

• a competitive relocation allowance and assistance
• a competitive midwife retention allowance

Why Waikato

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.

Situated on the banks of the mighty Waikato River, Hamilton is New Zealand’s largest metropolitan inland city. Hamilton’s vibrant city centre and rich cultural mix makes it an ideal place to experience the authentic friendly Kiwi lifestyle.
