Clinical jobs involve contact with patients. They will usually require formal study and training after you have finished school.
Non-clinical jobs are the support system to our health workers. Most of them aren't unique to health and can be found in other industries.
These include anything from accountants to project managers. And let's not forget, jobs like Libby's on Shortland Street!
Working in these roles provide a challenge not found in many other sectors of NZ and also make a difference. There aren't many other jobs you could say that about.
