Annual Recruitment

Our Annual Recruitment process for RMOs opens in April/May each year and abides by the NZ medical year*.

To make life easy, we have the same application process for both New Zealand residents and overseas applicants.

The Annual Recruitment opening date for the 2018/2019 Medical Year is the 16 April 2018.

As of the 13th May 2018 (the closing date), we will no longer be accepting applications for Registrar and House Officer roles. 

Don't want to miss the date?

Visit to register your details and set up a job alert, so that you can be notified as soon as Annual Recruitment opens!

After applications open, you can make your application online here.

To apply you will need electronic copies of your:

  • CV
  • Covering Letter
  • Current medical registration certificate

If you have any problems completing your application, please email Tracey is the Medical Recruitment Specialist. She will be happy to assist. 

You will be notified of the outcome of your application by:

  • 23rd July 2018 - Registrars
  • 6 August 2018 - House Officers

*Please note that this process is separate from the application needed from overseas doctors looking for an August start, with applications open and closed well before the August commencement.
