General Practitioner job opportunity close to Wellington, New Zealand's capital city. 

We are looking to hear from General Practitioners (GP) who are interested in joining a fantastic community practice only a short distance from New Zealand's capital city of Wellington. This exciting opportunity will give you the best of both worlds. Live that big city life but practice in the heart of a community.






  • Immediate start date
  • Permanent, full-time position 
  • Excellent salary and benefits package
  • Salary $160,000 to $210,000 NZD (up to just over £100k)

New Zealand is one of the quickest with a lower amount of initial outlay for registration and immigration approval than that of other locations worldwide and can see you out there ready to start your next adventure within 2-3 months. 

Wellington was ranked the 4th best place to visit in the world by Lonely Planet in 2011 and 15th in the "2018 Quality of living Rankings"  

It is also the political and cultural centre of New Zealand, offering the luxury of living in a small city with big city advantages, with a magnificent harbour framed by hills. It speaks for itself and needs little introduction. The relatively young and affluent population is reflected in the huge range of cultural events and more cafes and restaurants per head of population than New York. (by the way, Wellingtonians love their coffee and would say it's the best in the world) 

Where will your adventures in New Zealand take you?
