When you work for the College, you work for the health of New Zealanders by growing and supporting our GP workforce.
Be a health hero
The College represents 90 percent of New Zealand’s GPs who provide first point healthcare to patients for a lifetime. For us at the College, nothing is more satisfying than making this possible.
As long as New Zealanders need health, they will need GPs and invariably the College. With our 50th anniversary around the corner, the College will continue to provide learning and education for our members and information on evidence based treatments. Find out more about the College.
Forty two percent of our staff had never worked in the health sector before working here. Coming from a background outside the medical sector helps provide a fresh perspective on things. Understanding the world of healthcare can be a highly rewarding and interesting endeavour.
Our senior management team looks after each of the five teams in the College: membership, learning, corporate, quality and the Tūmuaki Māori.
- Professional membership organisation
- Permanent full-time role
The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (the College) is seeking to employ an Admissions Advisor whose key responsibility will be to manage admission to our general practice vocational (specialist) training programme. Our goal is to find a candidate who is keen to help doctors make a positive change in their lives through general practice education.
The College is a professional membership body and post-graduate educational institute established in 1974. It provides ongoing educational support to its 5000 members and training for doctors aspiring to be specialist general practitioners or rural hospital medicine specialists. The College also delivers leadership in quality and advocacy, as well as research for its membership and stakeholders; it sets standards and establishes quality systems and processes; and offers a continuing professional development programme for general practitioners and rural hospital medicine doctors.
Every year the College will admit around 200 new trainee Registrars to its General Practice Education Programme (GPEP). The main purpose of this role will be to plan, coordinate and manage the admissions process – ensuring that the College admits the best possible candidates, and that the applicant doctors are supported and kept well-informed throughout the recruitment phase.
This role will be perfect for you if you –
- have a passion for helping others achieve their goals and career aspirations
- have great confidence at speaking with people at all levels
- are a very organised and meticulous planner who can apply processes and procedures sensibly and thoughtfully, and
- are an excellent listener and a patient problem-solver.
