A range of great benefits


As you’d expect from a leading New Zealand health brand, Southern Cross Healthcare' employees have access to a great range of benefits as part of their employment within our wholly-owned facilities.  These include competitive remuneration, KiwiSaver options, Southern Cross health insurance subsidies, and long service recognition, as well as relevant professional education support and access to employee assistance programmes.

Looking after our people

Southern Cross Healthcare has a focus on providing appropriate workplaces, equipment and training in our facilities.  We provide mandatory safety training and courses addressing areas including manual handling, working with machinery, energy and hazardous materials, infection control and emergency preparedness. 

We look to combine fun, healthy activities, informative presentations on healthy lifestyle options, and online resources. Our employees have access to an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), free flu jabs, nutrition information and more.  This all adds up to a package that supports our people to be successful and creates a safe and positive working environment.

Work-life Balance

We do all we can to make sure that we give you the right tools and resources to help maintain a positive work-life balance.  Our work environment is family-friendly, in that Christmas and New Year brings a welcome break with friends and family for our hospital-based teams.  We are happy to discuss study relief, and our employees’ participation in selected professional forums that support our work to improve the quality of the healthcare services we offer.
