Working at St John

We’re on a journey towards becoming a truly integral part of New Zealand’s community health care solution of the future. The Vision for St John is enhanced health and wellbeing for all New Zealanders.  St John is run and staffed by people who are passionate about serving their communities and caring for fellow New Zealanders. We are a charity and have a volunteer ethos, with paid and volunteer members working side by side.

St John has existed in New Zealand since 1885 and is part of a global organisation known as the Order of St John, which is active in more than 40 countries. The Order of St John can trace its history back to a hospital set up in Jerusalem during the Crusades over a thousand years ago.

Diversity & Inclusiveness

Diversity means more than race and gender. At St John we understand the value of creating environments where many different voices are heard and all opinions are valued and considered.

These voices come from people who may or may not be of the same gender identity, race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, access need, personality type and/or thinking style. 

At St John we draw upon these unique experiences, perspectives and backgrounds to advance our organisational goals and better help the communities we serve.
