We have an exciting opportunity for a GP who is looking to relocate to a large practice in the heart of Gisborne on the North Island of New Zealand. 

Gisborne which is the first place in New Zealand (and the world for that matter) to see the sunrise each morning features a prevalent café culture and many restaurants, which serve local products, including some of the best New Zealand food and wine.

  • Start day ASAP
  • 8-9 sessions per week
  • Practice open Mon - Fri 
  • Fantastic salary and benefits package  


Local schools are excellent and real estate is affordably priced. The region is well known in NZ for its laid back way of life and generally enjoys warm summers and mild winters and is one of the sunniest places in New Zealand with average yearly sunshine of around 2200 hours. Outdoor enthusiasts and families of all ages can enjoy a truly balanced lifestyle

Why NZ?

New Zealand is becoming more and more a location of choice for those who previously considered Australia as the most desirable location down under. Its rapid growth compared to other developed countries has recently been referred to as a “rock star economy” and it was voted the best place in world to raise a family by the 2014 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey, with the report describing it as “an ideal destination to raise active, outdoorsy and healthy children.”

Medical professionals are well-remunerated and enjoy great working conditions and an excellent work life balance in New Zealand. There’s never been a better time to look more closely at what NZ has to offer:​
