Overnight Teletriage Nurse or Paramedic

  • Clinical career opportunity in our Christchurch office or the comfort of home
  • Overnight shifts - 11pm-7am and penal rates offered
  • We may consider overseas applications with NZ registration

We are currently recruiting experienced Registered Nurses and Paramedics to join our Healthline team. We have options for you whether you're looking forward to serving communities across New Zealand while working from home and night-time shifts, or you're looking forward to the social and career opportunities in Christchurch office.

Atu mo te mahi - About the role

Tele-health is an evolving and dynamic area of the health sector. We use advanced technology and decision support software in conjunction with the ability to upload images to enhance the tele-triage experience. You will use your extensive clinical experience and be supported by our robust clinical guidelines and systems. This is a unique opportunity to utilise your clinical expertise, education and communication skills, in the innovative area of tele-health. You will have full support, training, supervision and coaching from our clinical leaders.

You'll be welcomed into a dynamic, specialist team, working overnight shifts from 11pm-7am where penal rates apply. The service operates seven days. If based overseas, our overnight shifts, with more attractive rates, may correspond to a daytime or a better shift time for you.

Our communities are diverse, and if you are passionate about serving your community, then with the help of our Language and Ethnicity call matching technologies, you will have a direct impact and opportunity to provide tailored phone based clinical support.

On offer is a permanent position, either working part time (minimum of 0.4FTE) or full time, with the option of working from home, or in our call centre based in Christchurch. We also offer fixed-term options if that suits your circumstances best.

Pehea koe - About you:

  • You'll be a Registered Nurse with a current practising certificate (NZRGON, Dip.CpN or BHS Nursing) or Paramedic with current authority to practise (Registration pending in 2021)
  • All levels of nursing experience, specialist or generalist, are welcome to apply. We are keen to have you join our team!
  • Great listening and communication skills and confidence with technology
  • Focus on outcomes, planning, and service delivery
  • Connecting in with our priority communities is essential and a high degree of cultural awareness and empathy is required. Korero Māori or talanoa in Pasifika languages is also highly desirable
  • Eligibility to work in New Zealand
  • We may consider some overseas applications providing you are registered to a NZ Professional body

Ko wai hoki - About us


Whakarongorau Aotearoa has the privilege of running free to the public, virtual health, mental health, and social services for the people of Aotearoa.

Our 12 clinical teams and support services are based across contact centres in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and from their homes across Aotearoa.

We want to give everyone in Aotearoa the opportunity for wellness. We focus on the connected world of digital care, where we can help join all the dots, and select the right services, advice, support and help for the right need.

Through our 30+ services we connected with over 950,000 people last year (to 30 June 2021).

We use our healthy imagination to solve big problems by understanding the tiny ways that people are blocked from getting the care they deserve. Our imagination comes from our people and our partners and their drive to never give up.


Ō tātou uara - Our values

Our values underpin all we do, and how we do it. We are looking for people who align naturally with these values and will champion them:

  • Mahia te mea tika - Do the right thing
  • Hihiri e te kounga - Motivated by quality
  • Ngākau nui ki te pai ake - Passion for better
  • Pokohiwi ki Pokohiwi - Shoulder to shoulder

To tatou tikanga - Our culture

Our staff are passionate people, each driven to contribute to better health outcomes, with a focus on high priority populations. We are focused on hiring kaimahi who live and work in the communities they serve.

Whakarongorau Aotearoa's commitment to understanding and improving mana taurite (equal status) starts with the understanding of self and how we, as health professionals, think and behave each minute of each day to serve the health needs for Aotearoa.

To ensure we are as connected and as engaged as we can be with the people we help, nearly 20% of our workforce identify as Māori and 22% as Pasifika.
