New Zealand needs your help

The government anticipates a high number of healthcare and Support Workers in your community will be unable to work due to having to isolate or having COVID-19. This means many vulnerable people around you, the elderly or those with disability, illness or injury, can face not receiving the much-needed support that will keep them safe at home. We urge you to lend a helping hand by joining the NZ crisis response workforce. This is a great opportunity for you to earn more by spending some of your available free time to make a real difference to people in your community.

Mandatory vaccination for health workers

As you will be a member of a team working in the health and disability sector, you will need to be fully Covid-19 vaccinated (including getting your booster when due) to be eligible.
