About the Southern DHB and our Teams

Southern DHB has the largest regional coverage of all the New Zealand health boards, providing services to 350,000 people in diverse communities across a huge geographical area. We take pride in all the services we provide and our aim is to improve, promote and protect the health of our region. Our customers-patients, staff and communities – are at the forefront of everything we do.


Our physiotherapy teams work within the broader interprofessional team covering a range of inpatient, outpatient and community services.  Our teams on both sites (Dunedin and Invercargill) enjoy the short commute to work, leaving ample time for what matters to them most. Add to this the close proximity to some of New Zealand’s most famous scenery and holiday destinations (think Queenstown, Wanaka and Milford Sounds to name but a few!) you can go from seaside to ski-slopes in a matter of hours.


If you want to be part of a large, diverse organisation committed to excellence but don’t want the big-city headaches, why not consider all that is on offer here and gain a better work-life balance for you and your family.


The work visa is applied for through Immigration New Zealand  As an accredited employer, we are generally able to support work visa applications if an offer of work were to result from a recruitment process.
