About the Job

The Opportunity

If you are looking for a great work life balance, Nau Mai Haere Mai, this is the place to be! 

Recognised as an ideal place to raise a family, Tairawhiti Gisborne is one of the most beautiful and sunny parts of Aotearoa New Zealand.  A relaxed city offering access to outstanding leisure pursuits and a caring, safe community. The city has superb outdoor facilities, golden beaches, a warm climate and a vibrant local economy based on wineries, agriculture and tourism. It’s little wonder that it is the work destination of choice for many medical professionals. With a population of just under 50,000 with approximately 80% in the city of Tūranga-nui-a-kiwa Gisborne the region is culturally rich and unique with a high population of Māori (55%). 

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our fantastic Orthopaedic team who provide a comprehensive service for the population of Gisborne and the wider Tairawhiti region.  We are seeking an Orthopaedic Surgeon  who is proficient in general orthopaedics including arthroplasty and trauma.   An interest in a speciality area such as upper limb would be of benefit to the team too but not essential.

About you

To be part of our team, you will have:

  • Registration as a Medical Practitioner with the New Zealand Medical Council of New Zealand or eligible for registration with the Medical Council to enable you to practice medicine within New Zealand.
  • Demonstrated clinical expertise in management of a variety of orthopaedic conditions
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills, including the ability to develop partnerships and work collaboratively within a team

Our Organisation

Situated on the eastern coast of New Zealand's North Island, Gisborne “Tairāwhiti” – “The light shines on the water” is the first city in the world to see the rising sun of the new day. Our region offers vast golden sand beaches, bush clad mountains, lush farmlands, with significant historical landmarks, natural wonders and a deep connection to Māori culture. We enjoy a pleasant climate, short commutes and a relaxed approach that creates a work-life offering that is enviable to most that are not yet here.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please apply online and attach an up to date copy of your CV for consideration.
