We are looking for a General Practitioner to work at a practice in the heart of the community in the stunning town of Taupo on the North Island of New Zealand.

Taupo needs no introduction and lets the breathtaking landscape do all the talking. 

  • Start date late 2018
  • Long term commitment
  • Competitive Salary/benefits package 
  • General Practitioner required for 8 sessions
  • Vacancy is due to a GP in the practice retiring 
  • Participation in out of hours & weekend roster required - 1:10 

Not only is Taupo a busy holiday destination with bustling cafes and restaurants, it is situated on the shores of a stunning clean fresh water lake which is the largest in Australasia. Taupo is becoming increasing popular due to the close proximity to world-renowned trout fishing, golf, hunting, and skiing. It is also a fantastic location for anyone who has a love for the outdoors. A gorgeous lakeside setting that doubles as the sky diving capital of New Zealand, midway between Auckland and Wellington with its's central location makes it an excellent base for exploring the attractions of the North Island. 

Why NZ?

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 voted the best place in world to raise a family by the 2014 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey, with the report describing it as “an ideal destination to raise active, outdoorsy and healthy children.”

Medical professionals are well-remunerated and enjoy great working conditions and an excellent work life balance in New Zealand.
