Job Description

Our Purpose: What We're Here For

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you're part of something very special. We're world leaders in the delivery of integrated health care, and we're always striving to Make It Better. From the carers on the front line working directly with patients and communities, to our talented support teams who enable that care, we plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. And we're all about putting people at the heart of everything we do.

Our Culture: What Matters To Us

Ko Te Whatu Manawa Tangata
Putting people at the heart of all we do

For us to continue putting our communities at the centre of our health system, we're putting our own people at the centre of everything we do. Because health is ultimately all about people. What's important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility that all our people take for delivering outcomes, and that we go about our work with integrity in all we do.

What matters to us is doing the right thing, valuing everyone, and being and staying well ourselves so we can care for our community.

The Role: What This Opportunity's All About

The Community Rehabilitation Enablement Support Team (CREST) is at the forefront of community based healthcare, working with clients to optimise safety and independent functioning in their own homes. As an Occupational Therapist in CREST you will be required to look at clients holistically but focus on the details to meet their safety and rehabilitation needs at home.

We are looking for a Physiotherapist who can hit the ground running with the energy and passion to deliver a high standard of care to patients. Working as a member of an inter-disciplinary team you will need to be flexible and adaptable with an enthusiasm for knowledge sharing across and beyond your discipline. You will have the confidence to work independently, managing and prioritising a caseload. Your ability to establish an early rapport with patients and families will see you negotiating appropriate solutions. You will have the ability to think on your feet and use initiative when required. Working within a multidisciplinary team and interacting with a wide range of people from varying backgrounds, you will have the opportunity to put to use your excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

Registration with the NZ Physiotherapy Board and an Annual Practicing Certificate is essential and preferably you'll have demonstrated specialty area experience and professional development.

This is a permanent, part-time (0.5 FTE) position with days of work to be discussed at interview stages.

Belonging Here: Becoming Part of Our Story

Our people enjoy access to a fantastic benefits scheme, flexible working arrangements and a genuine and ongoing focus on career development.

We hope you'll seriously consider joining us, but if this isn't a good fit for you, please share the opportunity with your personal networks and help us find our next rock star!
