Non-Clinical Workers - COVID-19 Help

COVID-19 Incident Management Team – Timaru Hospital

Casual Roles Available


Every moment matters is not only our vision, it is our commitment to enhance the health and independence of the people of South Canterbury. There has never been a more important time to ensure we use everything we can and every person we have in the community in working together to fight COVID-19.

Although our COVID-19 pandemic response requires help from clinical workers, we potentially need help from non-clinical workers too. You will be our support staff, proudly standing right alongside our frontline clinical workforce. Your tasks will mainly involve administration, front desk, or telephone operating work. By doing these tasks, you will be helping free up the clinical staff to do what they do best.

You will be key in helping out in the main hospital, at the COVID-19 testing clinic, or anywhere else in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation.

To avoid confusion, please indicate in your application cover letter which areas/tasks you are trained in or which areas you are willing to work in. Also, for H&S reasons, please indicate whether or not you are currently working in another healthcare facility (e.g. aged care) or other high-risk environment.


With your help, we can unite against COVID-19 and get through this difficult time together.


Please note that even though you are a ‘non-clinical worker’, by working with us, you will be considered and defined as a ‘healthcare worker’. Please note that there will no expectation for you to work once the COVID-19 situation has entered a recover phase or as demand for healthcare services due to COVID-19 decreases.
