Although your college allocates you to a region, it is not an employing body. Being part of the college does not give automatic right to employment at a DHB. Employment is only given after you complete standard employment processes.
We would strongly recommend being prepared to submit required certified documentation each time you move. Keep scanned copies of updated certified documents on file to ensure you do not need to keep re-collecting these. Updated references will always be required however as per DHB employment policy. You can be proactive in this regard and ensure you know the requirements for the DHB you are going to in advance.
Run categories depend on your allocation. Allocations are always advised under separate cover to the offer.
A quick email to your recruiter can clear this up.
As part of DHB employment policy we cannot offer employment without your official documents being certified. NRA must fulfil its service obligations to the DHB’s in this respect.
If MCNZ or another employing body holds certified copies of your documents on file, you can give them permission to release these to us.We also recommend that you hold scanned certified copies of required documentation on file if you are rotating throughout New Zealand.
