Te Marae Ora (TMO) Ministry of Health is hoping to fill seven key vacant positions ranging from lab technicians, laboratory scientist, radiographer, nurses and doctors.
for Health Bob Williams says there will always be an ongoing recruitment at TMO
for specialised clinical roles and clinical support.
an earlier report, Williams said that from July to December last year, Te Marae
Ora had 33 staff, including nurses, concluding their employment.
reasons for their departure were for studies and training opportunities, end of
contract and returning overseas, migration due to family priorities and better
remuneration packages offered either from in-country and/or overseas employers.
also stated the ministry would be looking to get more nurses from Pacific
Island neighbours to cover the vacant and skilled positions.
