Are you a General Practitioner with a passion for healthcare, a love of the great outdoors and interested in working in a practice in the heart of the community in the stunning town of Taupo on the North Island of New Zealand? Well look no further....








Taupo needs no introduction and lets the breathtaking landscape do all the talking. 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, this central location makes it an excellent base for exploring the attractions of the North Island. There are numerous adventure sports to get involved in or if you prefer to take it a bit easier, there are lots of amazing lakes and beaches to explore. Not only is it 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 the Australasia.  

  • Flexible with 8-10 sessions 
  • Suitable for a sole GP or a GP couple
  • Fantastic salary and relocation package on offer 

The Lakes Region is an ideal location if you are looking to achieve that sought after life/work balance and the chance to experience a true wholesome New Zealand experience. 

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.

There’s never been a better time to look more closely at what NZ has to offer:​
