We are looking for a General Practitioner to join a small community practice in the heart of the picturesque Marlborough Region on the South Island of New Zealand. 

The Marlborough Region is best described as a lifestyle. Sitting at the top north-east corner of the South Island, it enjoys one of New Zealand’s sunniest climates with hot, relatively dry summers and crisp winters. It is also well known for the picturesque Marlborough Sounds and can also lay claim to starting the modern New Zealand wine industry.







  • Start date ASAP
  • Live that work-life balance 
  • Great salary and benefits package
  • Large, well established community-run practice 

The Marlborough Region has a wide range of leisure activities that can be enjoyed by everyone. It is home to some of New Zealand's most recognised native wildlife. You can enjoy swimming with dolphins in the Marlborough Sounds and watching whales in Kaikoura and whilst walking through the bush and along the rugged coastline you may be lucky enough to spot the shy wild pigs (who were once released by Captain Cook at Ships Cove). There is never a shortage of places to see & things to do. The region also offers spectacular scenic boat cruises, fishing, water-skiing and kayaking for people who have a love of the water.  

This is a highly sort after location in New Zealand and regardless of the time of year, there is always something going on.

Why NZ? Well, why not!!! 

New Zealand is becoming more and more the location of choice down under. Medical professionals are well-remunerated and enjoy great working conditions and an excellent work-life balance. There’s never been a better time to look more closely at what NZ has to offer:
