About us

Working for the Canterbury District Health Board - working for the Community. At its core, our vision is dependent on achieving a truly collaborative, 'whole of system' approach where everyone in the health system works together to do the right thing for the patient and the right thing for the system and our community as a whole.

About the role

Our team of dynamic and motivated Dietitians, based primarily at Christchurch Campus provides support to adult and paediatric patients across a range of clinical specialties including oncology, orthopaedics, otolaryngology, respiratory, neurology, general medical, surgical wards and outpatients.

We have an exciting and challenging role that will capitalise on your passion for education as well as your ability to enthuse your patients and motivate real behavioural change. You'll be working as part of multi-disciplinary teams, liaising with health providers and you'll be driven to ensure best health outcomes for people with nutrition related disorders.

We have causal vacancies available, for flexible dietitians looking to support a great team at Christchurch hospital and to meet the needs of our patients.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, positive team player with a good mix of clinical experience and a desire to learn more. Working as part of a close-knit team, you will receive regular supervision and opportunities for professional development and you will also be encouraged to develop your skills and professional interests. You'll be self-motivated, organised and enjoy a challenge. Your relationships with your patients will be crucial to this role so your strong interpersonal and communication skills will shine out.
