On Wednesday, April 29, we sent you an email with links to our surge workforce website, where a shortlist of health and disability workers are available to help employers who need extra staff to manage New Zealand’s COVID-19 response.

We’ve been made aware that this link in our previous email may not work correctly for some of you, so please see the full link to that page here for future reference:


If you know any healthcare providers who are looking to employ extra staff, or any health and disability workers looking to return to the workforce and help manage the COVID-19 response, please let them know they can find out more information and register their details using the link above.

Kind regards,

The Surge Workforce Team
