Psychiatrist Jobs in New Zealand - View the latest vacancies on our Psychiatry Microsite - New Zealand

Consultant - Psychiatry
Ref: 5108 Date Posted: Tuesday 20 Feb 2018



I have recently taken over our Psychiatry Division for New Zealand and I am now actively working with Psychiatrists on 2018 vacancies in a variety of different locations across both islands.

I have a number of opportunities at present across General Adult (Community and/or Inpatient), Child & Adolescent (Inpatient & Community), Addictions, Forensic (including Youth Forensic), and Maori Mental Health (which is totally unique to NZ).

Settings range from coastal towns, main cities, tertiary centres, teaching hospitals, rural communities, North Island and South Island locations, so there is something for everyone depending on subspecialty areas of expertise, how long you would like to work for in NZ (minimum 12 months fixed term or more long term) and the places which appeal most.

I have also recently re-launched our Head Medical NZ Psychiatry microsite, which features all our latest jobs and provides more details on the process and requirements, as well as the remuneration packages and other benefits you can expect. Please click on the link above to view these updated details and latest jobs I am recruiting to. This microsite will be continually updated as new jobs come in through the year.

If you are interested in exploring these opportunities further, please don't hesitate to let me know. I am based in New Zealand, having made the move myself in September 2017, but I'm always happy to have a confidential chat about the options available and how I can potentially assist. 

I understand there are many factors associated in deciding whether to take the plunge and apply for a job overseas, especially somewhere like NZ, however, by getting in touch with your CV, I can provide initial advice on your eligibility for medical registration in NZ and from there, we can arrange to have a further chat to help you in your decision making. 

Please feel free to contact me at 

For those who like a more face to face approach and who are based in the UK, we are holding our Making the Move event over the weekend of 24th & 25th March 2018, in London, featuring not only New Zealand but also Australia, the Gulf, the Maldives, China, and Singapore. This is a general session for all medical specialties and our recruiters discuss jobs and eligibility requirements, medical registration and visa processes, as well as factors to consider in an international move. There's an active Q&A session to close the sessions and an opportunity to speak to our team on a one to one basis too.

To register your interest and book your place on the 24th or 25th March, please email  

Meantime, if you are keen to focus on New Zealand, please do get in touch with me or have a look at the microsite to see if any of our roles catch your eye.
