Head Medical are currently seeking an experienced Psychiatry Senior House Officer or Registrar for an initial 12 month contract with the potential for extension.

This is an excellent opportunity to join the mental health and addiction services department within a comprehensive, well-equipped secondary hospital with modern facilities based in a small city on North Island. 

Locals enjoy easy access to a fantastic untouched natural environment, which lends itself to such outdoor pastimes as surfing, paddle boarding, fishing, sailing, swimming, mountain biking and hill walking etc. It’s also a popular holiday destination for other visiting Kiwis in the summertime, drawn to the hot summer weather, annual music festivals, vineyard tours and surfing competitions. 

The local airport has regular daily flights to Auckland and Wellington airports (1 hr flights), making international connections easy, as well as making other domestic destinations such as Queenstown and the Bay of Islands easily accessible.


You won’t find a better location to experience the laid-back kiwi lifestyle whilst having a truly unique learning experience.
