Mō tēnei tūranga mahi | About this role

Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Whatu Ora - Capital, Coast & Hutt Valley District

Location: Hutt Hospital

Service: Newborn Hearing Screening

Contract: Permanent, Part-time

Salary: $65,975 - $80,193 per annum 

Kōrero mō te tūranga - About the role

We are looking for a dedicated and friendly person to join our small newborn hearing screening team at Hutt Hospital.  The role is for 2 days a week (2 x 8hr shift), Wednesday and Thursday with flexibility to work public holidays as needed.  The role is based mainly on the maternity ward at Hutt Hospital where whanau are offered newborn hearing screening for their new baby.  Screening is completed in the maternity ward, in the audiology outpatient department or in homes in the community.  Full information on the hearing screening process can be found via the National Screening Unit website

Mō tō mātou rōpū - About our team

The newborn hearing screening team is made up of a UNHSEIP coordinator/Team Leader and two part time newborn hearing screeners.  We work closely with the maternity and audiology staff.  Our team is welcoming and supportive, working in a busy environment where the work load varies as babies are born every day and at any time.  The team will provide full support to complete the required national training and become competent in performing newborn hearing screening.

Moū - About you

Meeting whanau shortly after birth of their baby is a special time and so you need to be able to develop rapport quickly, be sensitive to the whanau's needs and be comfortable in a hospital setting.  The newborn hearing screening programme is a nationwide service with clear policy and procedures so you need to be comfortable around technology and have an attention to detail and accuracy.  As part of the role you will need to be available to work one full time week (5 days) to complete the practical training with a designated UNHSEIP national trainer outside of the Wellington region.  All costs will be covered to complete the training including flights and accommodation as needed.
