Description
Kiwi owned and operated caring health staffing and services company with a specialist focus on aged care/older NZers. We attract and recruit people who are not only knowledgeable, skilled and professional, but are also ‘people who care’. Our values have come from and are driven by Jane Clements and Andi Sizer – our owners. Medcall has cool IT systems, flash business processes, best practice recruitment processes, brainy accountants and experienced mentors supporting us to run a ‘smart business’. However, ultimately we are all about the people we are, the things we care about, how we behave, and the services we deliver. We want Medcall people to be recognised as caring, fun, straight-up and genuine people! Care comes before commercial.

What we do best, is help great people find their next permanent career move for professionals seeking jobs including health management jobs, clinical leadership jobs, nurse coordinator jobs to name just a few and our bureau has opportunities for nurses and caregivers.
Testimonials
Medcall has been a marvellous company to work with. They have experienced and friendly mentors who have guided me through my journey at Medcall. One can work the shifts that best suit their lifestyles. - Preet Sawara 2015

After 10 days in hospital. I had Teresa from Medcall caring full time for me at home. Teresa was a cheerful efficient lady who gave me great care, cooked excellent meals, and did the house keeping which was very well done.

Having Medcall in my home was a great way to recover. I would recommend Medcall to anyone who would prefer in home care rather than going to a care home - J. Monty

I can honestly say that the support, information sharing and accessibility of Andi at Medcall has made the whole recruitment experience very seamless and has achieved a great result.
I have worked with a few agencies before but believe that Medcall has demonstrated one of the best processes and experiences for me so would recommend them wholeheartedly to any potential Healthcare employee.
Thank you so much you were amazing.- B Watkins Business and Care Manager

I rang you, desperate, at 5 minutes to 5 - but you still managed to get someone for me. Unbelievable!! The tasks they did, especially, not knowing anyone was amazing. S Durham - facility manager!
