About the team
We are a team with an enviable mix of skill, knowledge and clinical experience, committed to delivering a high standard of service to our patients. 

About the opportunity
This is a unique opportunity to work and live in Southern NZ!

You will be based in our Speech-Language Therapy department at Dunedin Hospital with our supportive and dynamic team of therapists. It would be an advantage if you have experience working with tracheostomy, ICU / HDU, videofluoroscopy, but not essential. 

About you
Ideally you will bring to us at least 3-5 years’ experience. This is a role for someone with experience and enthusiasm for Speech-Language Therapy who can manage their caseload while supporting the growth of other therapists. We are looking for an experienced Speech-Language Therapist who enjoys working with an established team, has excellent communication and interpersonal skills and is driven and proactive in their ongoing development of advanced skills. You will have a degree in Speech-Language Therapy and hold an Annual Practising Certificate with the New Zealand Speech-Language Therapy Association.

Why Dunedin?
Now to the city itself, Dunedin offers the opportunity to have the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of. Boasting excellent education and restaurants, competitive costs of living and a beautiful coastline, life can be as relaxed or as energetic as you want. Our team enjoy the short commute to work, leaving ample time for what matters to you most. Add to this the close proximity to some of New Zealand’s most famous scenery and holiday destinations (think Queenstown, Wanaka and Milford Sound to name but a few!) you can go from seaside to ski-slopes in a matter of hours.

Sounds too good to be true? Rest assured, you can have it all here. Why not come see for yourself!
