ASMS | Industrial Officer | Wellington

Closing date: Friday 27 September 2019

  Industrial Officer

The Association of Salaried Medical Specialists (ASMS) represents the professional and industrial interests of salaried senior doctors and dentists throughout New Zealand.   Most of our members are employed by district health boards as medical or dental specialists.

Our small, high-performing industrial team in Wellington is growing in response to ASMS’ increasing membership and expectations, and we are seeking an Industrial Officer to join the existing team of experienced industrial advocates based in Wellington.

You’ll need excellent judgement, a proven track record, the ability to gather information quickly and offer sensible advice. You will need to be hard-working, well-organised and enjoy working with people.

You will also need empathy with senior doctors and dentists, who make up our membership, and with the union movement.  You will be required to travel regularly throughout New Zealand.

In return, we can offer you a great working environment with plenty of support, a competitive salary and excellent conditions, interesting work that makes a real difference, and the chance to support people who are highly skilled at delivering and leading health care in New Zealand’s public hospitals and communities.

Ideally you will have a good knowledge of New Zealand’s employment law, several years’ experience in an industrial relations field, and a tertiary qualification.  However, experienced candidates who do not meet all of these criteria should still apply.

More information is available in the job description for this position, which can be obtained from the ASMS national office: phone 04 499 1271 or email [email protected]. You are also welcome to contact Angela Belich, ASMS Deputy Executive Director, to discuss the position at [email protected].

Confidential applications should be made by 4pm Friday 27 September, and can be emailed to [email protected] or posted to ASMS, PO Box 10 763, The Terrace, Wellington 6143.
