MSD has a COVID-19 vaccination policy that encourages, but does not require, employees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and its variants, unless the role is identified as requiring vaccination at the time.

Why join MSD?

Our people are as diverse as the communities we serve.

We care about the wellbeing and success of our people and provide a supportive and inclusive working environment where people can thrive, feel valued and appreciated regardless of their gender, age or ethnicity.

Equality, diversity and inclusion

At MSD we're growing an inclusive culture where everyone is valued. Diversity is about empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different.  Inclusion is about the behaviours and social norms that ensure people feel welcome and have what they need to participate equally and thrive.  We aspire to be a trusted and proactive organisation that demonstrates manaaki for clients and employees to reflect, understand, value and enable people, their whānau and communities.

Flexible working

Flexible working is about people having options regarding how they work and can include adjustments to when and where they work.  Because our people and the work they do is so diverse, flexibility will be different for our people, depending on the work they do, the team's situation and their individual need.
