8. Panel Interview

Interview Process

Once your application has been reviewed by the specialty panel and you have been shortlisted for interview, you will receive an email inviting you to login to a system to book your interview.  Please remember, the sooner you have a complete application, the sooner the recruitment team can assess your application and pass on for your specialty panel to review you.  The sooner this occurs, the sooner you will be able to access the interview times and book your preferred date/time.

Interview Structure

Our interviews are panel interviews and will include at least 1 consultant and a NRA representative and are currently being held 100% via zoom due to continued COVID-19 uncertainty and contingency planning. Please ensure that you have set up your zoom account at time of application and provided your nominated email address attached to your zoom account. 

To set up a zoom account please follow the link:


You are welcome to have Whanau, family or other support persons with you during your interview if you wish, however please let your Recruitment & Allocation Consultant know ahead of time via email so that they can brief the interview panel. Whether you choose to use Whanau and or family support, or not, this will not affect your eligibility or the selection decision in any way.

On the day of the interview please ensure you allow plenty of time before your interview (at least 5 to 10 minutes before the scheduled time) to login to your email and test your audio and camera settings. If you wish to withdraw from an interview for any reason please let your Recruitment & Allocation Consultant know as soon as possible.

The interview will be approximately 30-60 minutes long, however the time may vary dependent on specialty. The interview will be structured and professional with the interview panel introducing themselves and giving you an overview of the interview process.
