What we do
Our Resident Medical Officer (RMO) recruitment team are responsible for the ongoing and fixed-term RMO recruitment across all 3 District Health Boards (DHBs) within the Wellington Region. Our work also includes assisting with recruitment advice, pre-employment support, staff retention and support.
We are a centralised unit that collaborates closely our sub-regional DHBs (Hutt Valley and Wairarapa). We regularly engage with the speciality services within our hospitals to understand their recruitment needs and upcoming changes.
The RMO unit is not responsible for service allocations however we are included in the allocation discussions and ongoing recruitment planning. We do our best to understand our RMOs' career plans and preferences to best assist with their future goals.
We aim to provide friendly advice in an accessible environment where you can call in for a chat with questions and queries. Our open-door approach means you can find support and guidance on a variety of issues in a variety of ways. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Across our 3DHBs, we have RMO coordinators placed within each of the services who can assist you with leave and roster queries. It is important that you direct your enquiry to the appropriate person. See below:
