Rural Locum

Working as a locum provides you with an opportunity to travel and experience life in different locations and communities. It also offers you the flexibility to work when you want to.

There are approximately 200 rural general practices in the country. They can be found in small towns close to major rural centres or in remote towns located in the most picturesque of settings.

NZLocums & NZMedJobs is government-funded specifically to ensure ongoing access to quality health care for rural New Zealanders. Therefore, unlike other agencies, we do not charge placement fees to rural practices.

If you are a registered GP or NP in New Zealand, interested in working as a locum, we’d love to hear from you, please contact us.
