We have an exciting, short-term opportunity for a GP who would like to experience living and working in the thriving town of New Plymouth on the North Island of New Zealand. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to try something new and work in a warm & friendly environment whilst helping deliver high-quality care in the community.

  • 6-7 session
  • No After Hours or Weekend work
  • 12-month Contract starting April 2019 
  • Competitive salary & relocation package 

New Plymouth is in the Taranaki Region and is situated on the West Coast of the North Island and enjoys a temperate climate with warm summers and mild winters. Why not enjoy life in 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. The small yet thriving city is situated in between a majestic mountain with excellent winter sports and a rugged coastline with world-renowned surf, great career opportunities, arts, culture, cafes and all the outdoor living mean it's a fantastic place to work, live and play.

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?

Well, why not... 

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 recently voted the 2nd safest country in the world to live and Auckland has been placed 3rd and Wellington 15th in the Mercer Quality of Living Rankings.

New Zealand has so much to offer.
