Why choose a career in Health?
Aotearoa needs more people working in health
There is currently a shortage in New Zealand's health sector. This means there is a shortage of jobs in the healthcare sector, creating more pathways for new employees into health and providing job security after graduation.
In addition, we know that many Māori prefer Māori health workers and Māori health workers often work best for Māori communities. So we need more Māori health professionals to meet the needs of our growing Māori population, both clinical and non-clinical. Currently Māori nurses are in the highest demand.
Awesome jobs - great salaries
A career in health means good money, interesting people, heaps of opportunities and the chance to contribute to your own communities. The healthcare field is fast-paced and exciting, so there's never a dull moment. Jobs are currently available for all education and experience levels with competitive earning potential. Anybody can start a career in health, so don't let the field of science mystify you!
One of the most exciting things about a career in health is the ability to make a difference in people's lives. Helping others and being part of a world that is always exciting and changing can be extremely rewarding. This element of job satisfaction is crucial for your own health and happiness as well.
