Frequently Asked Questions

How do I search for and apply for jobs?

You can search in the box on our home page or on any of the job pages. Sign up for job alerts to ensure you are the first to hear about new vacancies.  

You can search by keyword, job category or location. When you find a role you are interested in, click “apply” to be taken to an applicant portal where you can create your profile and upload your cover letter and CV. Please note, we only accept online applications.

How do I withdraw my application?

Login to the applicant portal and select the job you want to withdraw from, and follow the instructions. If you have accidentally withdrawn an application, please contact us.

I’ve applied for a job, when will I hear an outcome?

Given the high volume of applications, it can take up to two weeks to get an update on your application. 

If you are shortlisted for a role, you will be contacted by phone or email to arrange an interview. Unsuccessful applicants are informed via email or phone.

Can I apply for more than one job at a time?

Yes, you can apply for multiple roles. If you are interested or able to work in more than one location, please specify this in your cover letter.

What can I expect from the application process?

Following an application, our selection process may include:

  • Telephone or video interview
  • Behavioural/competency-based interview
  •  Site visit and/or meeting with the Hiring Manager
  • Reference checks
  • Police vetting check or Ministry of Justice check
  • Compliance checks (e.g. professional registration with relevant NZ Board, degree certificate)

Does APM accept overseas applications?

If you are a New Zealand Citizen or resident you are eligible to apply for any of our roles. If you do not have existing working rights, we may consider an international application if we are unable to source locally and it meets the current criteria for critical health worker in order to meet the border exemption criteria (e.g. Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Psychologist).  We prefer applicants to have obtained registration with the relevant NZ Board before applying.  See our section on International Applications. 

Please check the NZ immigration site for further information on visas and entry into the country.
