There's a lot to look forward to in New Zealand

Have you been thinking about your future lately?

Consider this: you could work in a brand new teaching hospital with the very latest technology. You could work in a city centre, and time your daily commute in minutes. And on your days off, you could choose mountains or beach, city or garden. That will be your life in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Expect support to develop

Whether your specialty is Recovery, Surgical, or Anaesthetic, you'll find a strong and immersive healthcare environment.

As the South Island's largest employer, CDHB provides the following:

  • Proactive teaching and training
  • Opportunities for project work
  • Focus on internal development
  • A drive to improve services and expertise

As well as the career opportunities, you'll find a welcoming, supportive team. We bring a positive attitude to work and help each other develop.

Every day's an interesting one

We see a huge range of patients and work. Our DHB serves a large population spread over a wide area. So you'll work with a huge cross-section of society, all with different needs and challenges.

That makes us ready for anything. Are you?

You'll love it here

If you like the outdoors and good weather to enjoy it in, Christchurch is the place for you. And with the rebuild well underway, you'll enjoy the positive, cheerful vibe too.

You'll work in the centre of town, so there's plenty of choice about where to live and how to commute. There are great schools, lots of activities for everyone, and a strong sense of community.

Can you think of a better move?

It's not just a job that's on offer here. It's a career path. It's a chance to build skills with the newest technology, in a modern hospital setting. It's a chance to enjoy the atmosphere of excitement and looking forward that you won't find anywhere else in New Zealand.
