Making the move to WFA

Please tell us what role you're interested in

The people, the place, the culture

Wellington is the capital city of Aotearoa, New Zealand and is the central city for the region of Wellington Free Ambulance. It's known for its connection to Weta Workshop and Lord of the Rings. It's also known for being the coffee capital of the country with green hills and a sparkling harbour. 

The home to the nation's Parliament, Wellington is culturally diverse, known for its creativity, thriving art scene and connection to the great outdoors.   

Wellington is also on the doorstep of the Wairarapa where you can tramp, fish, surf and enjoy award-winning vineyards - there really is so much to enjoy about this little slice of perfection. Find out more here. 

Boutique service with a family feel


Wellington Free Ambulance has been described as having a boutique feel due to the very specific region we serve.   The population base that Wellington Free provides support to is around 500,000 people.  

This enables us to be nimble and responsive to new ideas, technology and ways of working.  We are innovative and supportive of collaboration and learning. 

We are committed to supporting international recruitment through our People and Culture and Education team and provide individualised support to any candidate joining our crew from overseas. 

Some of the ways we will support you if joining us from offshore: 

  • Financial support for the Visa application process (you'll still need to pay for your actual Visa) 
  • Individualised support and advice around relocation
  • Financial contribution towards relocation costs 
  • Support with registering with the Paramedic Council

Don't delay - apply today!
