Taranaki is a region on the West Coast of the North Island and enjoys a temperate climate with warm summers and mild winters and is one of the most beautiful regions of New Zealand.

Situated mid-way between Auckland and Wellington, this region is one of those places in the world people visit and find they never want to leave. From the majestic mountain with excellent winter sports, rugged coastline with world-renowned surf to the arts, culture, cafes and outdoor living mean, it's a fantastic place to work, live and play.

  • 8 sessions

  • Flexible with start date
  • Rural community practice situated 30 mins drive from New Plymouth

This is a fantastic opportunity for a GP who is looking to work in a practice that provides a full range of high-quality primary care for the community and surrounding districts. You will be part of a team that is committed to providing a warm & friendly environment for its patients. 

The region is especially suited to anyone who loves the great outdoors or to families looking for family life and excellent schools and affordable housing.  The temperate climate and high sunshine hours (3rd highest in NZ), combined with a welcoming and multicultural community makes Taranaki a great destination.

Why NZ?
