When you work for the College, you work for the health of New Zealanders by growing and supporting our GP and rural hospital doctor 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, rural hospital doctors 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.

Many 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 four teams in the College: Membership Services, Learning, Corporate Services and Equity.

Current vacancies 

Modern office space

At the end of 2015, the College moved into a new office in Customhouse Quay right in the heart of Wellington’s CBD. Situated on the fourth floor and facing Wellington’s famous waterfront, light fills the white rooms resulting in a bright. airy atmosphere. The office was designed from scratch, putting an emphasis on the open plan layout and collaborative nooks are dotted around to promote teamwork.


As a health care College, we want to lead by example by fostering a healthy lifestyle. Fresh fruit is delivered to the office each week, you can have your entry cost reimbursed by the College if you choose to take part in the famous ‘Round the Bays’ run, and our flexible work options will help you find your zen.


Whether it’s quizzes in the breakout area, MKR competitions between teams, Matariki celebrations, or Friday afternoon food and drinks to end the week, our diverse team is pretty chilled out, and that’s the way we like it. The fiercest competition only occurs at the 3.00pm daily quiz.


Professional growth 

Having a healthy career isn’t just about having a good job; it’s about progression. We encourage everyone to think about their career, whether it’s about enriching their skills base in their current role, planning for the next role, or longer term.

Coolest little capital 

Being so close to Wellington’s city centre gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy what Lonely Planet calls the ‘coolest little Capital’. Wellington is known for being a bit windy at times and also for making great coffee. There are many festivals to get your teeth into including art, music and even beer. And with the College being one block from the middle of Lambton Quay, all of Welly’s culture is literally on your doorstep.
