Locum Registration - Registrar/House Officer

If you are a current employee wanting extra shifts in the outside of the DHB that you are currently allocated to, or if you are an external applicant from outside of the Auckland region and looking for some casual shifts, please register for Locum via our centralised locum process.


For a detailed description of the locum process that needs to be followed please click here.

Please be aware that if you are an external candidate not currently employed in a permanent capacity within the Auckland region, the registration process does involve successful police clearance prior to being able to offer locum contract documentation as per our obligations under the Children's Act 2014. Processing times are dictated by NZ Police and can take up to 20 working days.


Eligibility Criteria

In order to be a Locum, you must meet the requirements below:


Hold a current and full General Scope of Practise with no restrictions with MCNZ (and have any PGY2 related endorsements removed from your Practising certificate)


Have proof of eligibility to work in New Zealand


Have a current ACLS Certificate or confirmation of course booking if expired


Have proof of current Indemnity Insurance


If you meet the requirements above, please register your interest with our bureau by submitting an application by clicking on the link below. We will endeavour to get you through the registration process as quickly as possible.

Our standard employment process applies even if you have already been working in the Auckland Region. The locum contract is a causal employment contract and therefore additional to any permanent contract.

The employment process involves:


Completing an online application form and providing an up to date CV - Please download this CV template for convenience


References: If you are in current permanent employment within the Auckland Region we will only require one reference from your current run (as long as you have been in that run for 1 month or more, if not then the run you've just completed). If you are an external applicant then we will require two satisfactory references. One must be from your current run allocation at the time of applying. One further reference must be from your run allocation preceding your current run allocation. Whether you are an internal or external applicant, it is your responsibility to, and when requested to do so, upload your referee details via the electronic reference website. You will be sent a request to do this after you have formally applied and your application has been screened as being suitable to complete the locum registration process
