Mō tēnei tūranga mahi | About this role

Looking for something a little different? Demand for blood and blood products is growing- so we need to as well!
About the role
Our Christchurch collection centres have an exciting opportunity to work in a unique part of the health sector, caring for people and making a huge difference to patient outcomes, outside of a DHB.
There is a lot more to being a nurse at New Zealand Blood and Organ Service (NZBS) than just taking blood! Dealing with voluntary donors between various collection types and patients accessing our therapeutic services means that no two days are the same at NZBS.
You can say goodbye to night shifts! Collections staff work shifts Monday to Friday usually between 0700-2100, with the occasional Saturday. You will be based in our hub at Lester Lane with opportunities to work at our satellite site on Tuam Street. To add variety to your role our Mobile Blood Drive locations are local and South Island wide. Trips requiring short stays away occur approximately once per month. Occasional statutory holiday duties may also be required. Flexibility is key!
Whether you are interested in developing clinical skills, leadership skills coordinating our collects, coaching and training skills as a workforce coach or gaining experience in therapeutic procedures such as collection of stem cells and plasma exchange procedures. NZBS has fantastic opportunities for everyone.
Salary starting from $59,834 to $83,186 depending on skills & experience.
As our donors regularly go out of their way to give up their time to donate blood, great customer service is key to ensuring they have an amazing donation experience that encourages their continued support. To be successful in this role you'll be a positive ambassador for NZBS with the excellent written and verbal communication skills that are vital for reassuring donors every step of the way.
We welcome enquiries from Registered Nurses who will utilise their health assessment, critical thinking and reflective practice skills to contribute to all aspects of the collection of blood products and donor health education at our mobile and donor room collects. No phlebotomy experience needed- Let us train you!
A comprehensive 4-week induction and training programme are included plus a Nursing Council accredited PDRP is available.
