Health Care Assistants - Casual Pool

Are you are an experienced Health Care Assistant (HCA) who likes variety and enjoys the challenges of working in a hospital environment?

We have a number of opportunities available for Health Care Assistants (HCA’s) to work with us on a 'as and when needed' basis.

We care for patients 24 hours a day so flexibility with shifts would be an advantage. As an HCA in our casual pool you would be contacted and asked to work when departments need additional HCA support.

Working as an HCA your role will be to provide support to the ward nurses by assisting them with patient care and completing housekeeping and clerical tasks.

This is a great opportunity for those interested in working in a hospital environment as an HCA, as our casual pool HCA’s are offered the first chance to apply for any permanent roles that become available.

 We can offer you:

  • A supportive work environment. 
  • Flexible rotating shifts
  • A comprehensive orientation programme


Ideally you will be an experienced Health Care Assistant with NZQA Certificate in Health and Wellbeing Level 3 and have experience in working either in a health care environment. 

However, training and development are a strong focus at Hutt Valley DHB, so we would love to hear from you if you have a desire to upskill.
