Employment Vacancies

The NZSA works to respond to, and enhance, trends in medical workforce mobility.  We recognise the need for medical staff to experience working in different hospitals, both overseas and within New Zealand is important to retain and replenish specialist services in much needed areas.

Through our website and regular updates in our e-zine newsletter we inform our members of job vacancies.  We can also advertise vacancies in our magazine New Zealand Anaesthesia, which we publish three times a year.  We can also advertise anaesthesia-related vacancies such as anaesthetic technicians, support staff and locums.

Advertising rate:  our employment vacancy rate is $175 (GST exclusive) per month or part month.  We will also include links to the vacancies in our members’ e-newsletter which is sent out regularly.  If you wish to place an advertisement, please email  with your vacancy and billing details and the period you wish to advertise for.
