Work type:

Are you a newly graduated midwife looking for a supportive midwifery environment in which to gain clinical skills and consolidate your recent Bachelor of Midwifery Degree? 


Are you an experienced NZ Registered Midwife looking for a supportive, friendly and collegial environment, then this is your chance to be a part of it. 

Welcome new life on the West Coast - take a break from the busy city life and experience our pristine surroundings. Grey Base Hospital’s maternity services deliver high class care to women and their families and a brand new maternity facility coming mid 2018.

As a new graduate you will work in a supportive environment with senior midwifes. A full orientation programme is given and educational opportunities are available on the West Coast to meet your MFYP requirements.

You’ll have a commitment to providing quality midwifery and breastfeeding care and must be able to work in a sole charge position working rostered shifts. (Graduates will be supported by a preceptor ). Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are essential as you’ll be working in a small rural secondary unit and working with a wide variety of people. 

Our DHB is committed to supporting a continuity of care pathway for maternity care in the region and our employed midwives work closely with our LMC colleagues. We are willing to support midwives to achieve their career plans and ongoing recertification requirements. This support could include professional development opportunities, and assistance with relocation and accommodation.
