Hereford Centre Assertive Outreach Service, Registered Nurse

Our Purpose: What We’re Here For

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you’re part of something very special. We’re world leaders in the delivery of integrated health care, and we’re always striving to Make It Better. From the carers on the front line working directly with patients and communities, to our talented support teams who enable that care, we plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. And we’re all about putting people at the heart of everything we do.



Our Culture: What Matters To Us

Ko Te Whatu Manawa Tangata

Putting people at the heart of all we do 


For us to continue putting our communities at the centre of our health system, we’re putting our own people at the centre of everything we do. Because health is ultimately all about people. What’s important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility that all our people take for delivering outcomes, and that we go about our work with integrity in all we do.


What matters to us is doing the right thing, valuing everyone, and being and staying well ourselves so we can care for our community.


The Role: What This Opportunity’s All About

This is an opportunity for a skilled, highly motivated nurse to work closely with multidisciplinary team colleagues in the dynamic, professional and supportive Hereford Centre Assertive Outreach Service. The nurse will work as a case manager, being confident in assessing patient needs, formulating treatment plans, delivering evidenced based care and evaluating progress. 


The successful applicant must enjoy the challenges of case management; being adept at working autonomously in the community or in partnership with multidisciplinary team colleagues, and building relationships with consumers and their families/whanau.  The ability to work in an integrated manner with inpatient teams and to develop sound working relationships with community resources and services is necessary.
