Recruitment processes have been affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to border restrictions, we are not accepting job applications beyond New Zealand. Successful applicants/recruits based overseas, will be required to complete an Immigration Medical Clearance form and may need a visa to enter the country. Medical electives and health specialist visits are on-hold until further notice.
If you have the passion and desire to work in health, join our team and contact us today. To express your interest in roles advertised, you must submit a cover letter and CV via email to MOH.HR@cookislands.gov.ck.
If you are applying for roles from overseas be prepared to provide:
Job descriptions (JDs) can be requested from MOH.HR@COOKISLANDS.GOV.CK
If you have the skills and experience suitable for the position you applied for, you will be contacted by our team to arrange for an interview.
Tip: Use this as an opportunity to share any additional details about your relevant experience.
If your application is short-listed, you will be invited to attend a panel interview at our office, or if based on the Pa Enua (outer islands) or overseas, a video interview will be conducted using technology such as Skype or Zoom. Our interviews are behavioural and competency based, and require you to draw upon relevant examples from your prior experience to determine the competencies required for the role.
If your interview is successful and you’re shortlisted for the role, this process is essential to determine if you will receive an employment offer from us. It is important to provide at least two references on your CV who we can talk to. This process can take a while but we’re working as quickly as possible. If you have any queries during this process or wish to follow up, please call us and ask to speak with one of our HR team members.
If you’ve made it this far and receive an employment offer from us, congratulations! If you choose to accept the offer, the relevant documentation required as part of pre-employment checks include a criminal history check and medical clearance. This can take some time. Once all relevant documents and pre-employment checks are complete, you’ll be contacted by our HR team for a start date.
