Our City
Palmerston North is a family friendly city where you can enjoy the New Zealand countryside lifestyle without missing out on the advantages of a big city. Housing is more affordable in comparison to the larger metropolitan cities. With a diverse artistic community, Palmerston North is home to a multitude of cultural events, cafes, restaurants and sports activities. Its central place in the lower half of the North Island makes it easy to access the beautiful ski fields 2 hour’s drive north, Wellington 2 hours south, vineyards 2 hours east, wonderful hiking and biking areas 10 min east and the west coast beaches only a 30 minutes’ drive west.
MidCentral District Health Board is committed to ensuring that children and young people are safe from abuse and harm. As part of our commitment to children and young people, and in line with the Vulnerable Children Act 2014, appointment to positions that involve regular or overnight contact with children will include worker safety checks. These checks are in addition to the requirement to have a satisfactory police clearance. Further information will be provided to shortlisted candidates. To find out more information about the Vulnerable Children Act 2014 click here.

 
MidCentral District Health Board employs more than 2500 staff at Manawatu, Palmerston North, Tararua and Horowhenua and Otaki districts.
 
Palmerston North Hospital is a 350 bed secondary hospital, which services an urban population of 80,000 and a total population catchment of 168,000. In addition, the hospital is a teaching hospital, and is associated with both Auckland and Otago medical schools.
 
Palmerston North is a major university city and is at the hub of key routes to the central North Island ski fields, and river adventures. Wellington the capital city, is only a two hour journey by road, as are the wine growing regions of Hawke's Bay and Wairarapa.
