I am wanting to apply for deferred entry to medicine but have only just decided I want to take a gap year. I intend to go to New Zealand as I have dual nationality and am hoping to get a job. The main problem is that I'm not sure where I would work, I could get a job as a lifeguard, waitress or ideally in a health care setting. This early in advance it is difficult to make exact plans of work and so I'm wondering how I can say what I plan to do and gain from it when nothing is 100% set in stone.

Just write that you plan to go to New Zealand and work - it's not a massive issue

If your plan is to work in healthcare and that's relevant to your application then why not say so? I wouldn't dwell on it at length (particularly if plans aren't firm and/or might not happen) but a line that says you intend to spend 12 months in New Zealand working as a healthcare assistant (or similar) isn't untrue.
