We are looking for an enthusiastic team-player to join the Dunedin Hospital occupational therapy team on a fixed-term basis until end-January 2022.

You will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and have a proactive approach towards learning.  Self-motivation, a flexible attitude, and a keen drive to work as an integral team member are essential.

This position would suit a new or recent graduate and will provide the opportunity to undertake clinical roles in the acute and/or rehabilitation settings at Dunedin Hospital.  You will provide assessment and treatment for a variety of patients on a one-to-one basis or in a group setting, and will be working alongside teams of health-care professionals to deliver quality patient care and service delivery.

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 Sounds 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!
