Finding Employment

The Board does not maintain a list of employment opportunities nor can it help psychologists find positions. (These are not Board functions under the HPCA Act.) The Psychologists Board provides the following information as a public service but does not endorse or support any particular employment consultant.

Newspapers, ‘job seeker’ websites, and the newsletters and websites of the NZ College of Clinical Psychologists and NZ Psychological Society are also good sources of job advertisements for psychologists.

It is recommended that overseas-trained psychologists complete a “Self-assessment of eligibility for registration” before seeking employment in New Zealand. Please note that registration is not a guarantee of employment suitability.
