Consultant Psychiatrist - Addictions
Mental Health and Addiction Service

Employment Type: Permanent - 1 FTE

About Our Client

Situated in the sunny Eastern coast of New Zealand's North Island, the Bay of Plenty really is just that, offering vast golden sand beaches, bush clad mountains, lush farmlands and more. Its pleasant climate means that the area has become a favourite for holiday makers, retirees and those looking for a different lifestyle outside of the main cities.

Tauranga is a vibrant city and the surroundings are spectacular with beautiful beaches and wilderness areas all close by.  There is outstanding access to wide-range of schooling options, both public and private, an Institute of Technology and a recent addition is a University of Waikato Campus. Lifestyle options are diverse and you can live 20 mins from the hospital on a lifestyle block, in the bush, on an estuary with a boat or kayak or in the trendy beach area of Mt Maunganui.  The Coromandel and Auckland are an easy drive away and there is close enough access to the ski fields in winter.

Our health board is spread across a vast geographical area and centred across two hospitals based in Tauranga and Whakatāne.  We are one of the region`s largest employers with over 4000 staff.
