Are you a General Practitioner who is looking to relocate? What about being a GP in the stunning location of Rotorua on the North Island of New Zealand? 

We are eager to speak with GP's looking to work in an environment where they can have face-to-face consultations, 15-minute appointments, that highly sought-after work-life balance and have the freedom to relax in their free time.

  • Flexible start dates 
  • Part/Full-time position (8-10 sessions)
  • Great salary and benefits/remuneration package on offer
  • All Specialist Interests welcome along with General Practice
  • A short-term contract  will be considered but would prefer a longer-term commitment 

This well-established, innovative community Cornerstone Accredited practice is located close to the heart of Rotorua and they are looking for a GP to come and join the team.

Offering a full range of medical services, the practice is open Monday - Friday & closed on weekends & public holidays. This is a salaried position and the overall, attractive benefits package on offer will be negotiated depending on the successful candidate's qualifications & experience. 

If you’re not familiar with this part of New Zealand, it is visually stunning and an area of unique natural beauty and geothermal activity, offering a great outdoors lifestyle, perfect for taking advantage of the region’s hot summers and mild winters.

There are 13 different lakes in the immediate area and easy road access to the rest of the North Island and Auckland, so day trips to the beaches in the East and to the seasonal ski slopes in the West are only an hour away by car. Although this location is a small city (population 59,000), it’s vibrant and has a huge tourist and adventure sports industry that drives the local economy and welcomes tourists from all over the world, all year round. (Well it did pre COVID and will return to this once the borders are reopened fully)  

It is also an area steeped in New Zealand history and Maori legend and offers a variety of opportunities to learn more about the indigenous Maori culture.

New Adventure, New Lifestyle, Why not make It New Zealand 

Why NZ?

New Zealand is becoming more and more a location of choice. Medical professionals are also very well-remunerated and enjoy great working conditions and an excellent work-life balance. 

Next Steps
