We are looking for a General Practitioner for an exciting opportunity in the heart of the university city of Palmerston North on the North Island of New Zealand. 

Palmerston North is a major university city and is at the hub of key routes to the central North Island ski fields and river adventures. With only a 90 minutes scenic drive from Wellington or 2 hours from Taupo, this makes Palmerston North a great base to explore the North Island from.







  • Urgent Care Centre
  • Flexible with 8-10 sessions
  • Start date as soon as possible
  • Competitive Salary & Benefits Package available

Palmerston North, which is New Zealand’s 5th largest city, is home to a thriving music scene with many national and international acts touring through the town, as well as there being many local acts performing regularly. There are also theatres, thriving wine industry and expect to spend a lot of time outside because the area’s geography has inspired an exciting choice of mild, medium and wild adventures. Rafting, kayaking, horse trekking, mountain biking and rock climbing are just some of the adventurous things you can do.

Then after all that adventure and whatever the occasion or mood, there is a café, bar or restaurant to cater to your tastes which are complemented by the best of local produce. Whether you are relocating for that sought after work-life balance or you are relocating with family and thinking ahead to their future education options, this could be the opportunity for you. 

Why NZ? Why Not!!!

New Zealand is becoming more and more a location of choice down under. The Mercer Quality of Living Rankings has seen Auckland ranked 3rd and Wellington ranked 15th in the world and with Its rapid growth compared to other developed countries, it has recently been referred to as a “rock star economy”.

Medical professionals are well-remunerated and enjoy good 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:​
