Employment opportunities

Employment opportunities for healthcare support workers are good, thanks primarily to New Zealand’s aging population, and the increasing demand this is putting on our healthcare services. And while many care workers are employed in hospitals and nursing homes, there are also excellent opportunities in private home care companies, specialist care providers, church and welfare-based trusts, and home support services run by District Health Boards (DHBs).

Entry-level roles in the health sector include:

  • caregiver
  • healthcare assistant
  • home care support worker
  • hospital orderly
  • nurse aide
  • nursing support and care worker
  • personal care assistant

Entry criteria

If you are 16 years or older and already working in the healthcare sector, this course is the perfect first step.
