We have an exciting GP job in a community practice in southern Upper Hutt, part of the Wellington District which is just 30 minutes north of New Zealand's capital city on the North Island.
Wellington was ranked the 4th best place to visit in the world by Lonely Planet in 2011. It is the political and cultural centre of New Zealand, offering the luxury of living in a small city with big city advantages, with a magnificent harbour framed by hills. It speaks for itself and need little introduction. The relatively young and affluent population is reflected in the huge range of cultural events and more cafes and restaurants per head of population than New York. (by the way, Wellingtonians love their coffee and would say it's the best in the world)
- 8 session per week
- large Cornerstone practice
- Excellent salary and benefits package
- Potential long term opportunities in a more managerial role
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.”
