Employment at the Southern DHB

We directly employ a wide range of health professionals - we are the employer, not an agency - and welcome direct enquiries regarding employment opportunities with our hospitals and health services in southern New Zealand.

With some of New Zealand's most famous scenery and holiday spots on our back doorstep (Queenstown, Wanaka, Milford Sound, Stewart Island, and more), our region also offers affordable living, plenty of opportunities for families, and a relaxed way of life without a traffic jam in sight.
