Harbour Hospice is one of the largest hospices in New Zealand, caring for patients and their whānau for almost 40 years. Every day we care for more than 350 people across the North Shore, Hibiscus Coast and Warkworth/Wellsford regions, supporting them at home (or in one of our three sites) to live every moment in whatever way is most important to them.
Our bespoke services, given free of charge, include medical care, spiritual support, physiotherapy, social activities and more.
What's in it for you?
Our people are at the heart of our organisation. Caring, courageous, compassionate and driven to deliver the best care possible, our people are the reason Hospice has the reputation that it does.
If successful, you'll be welcomed with an in-depth induction, ongoing development opportunities including paid study leave, and a high trust culture. You'll join the multidisciplinary team, and take the lead of a well-established, supportive and dedicated nursing team who share a passion for making every moment count for the people we care for at Hospice.
You'll also help to shape strategy to meet the palliative care needs of our growing North Shore community.
