Job Description

  • Excellent skill enhancement opportunity
  • Very supportive team culture

To this role you will bring at least two years of post graduate experience within New Zealand and a commitment to make a difference in the lives of others. Based in the on site health centre you will become part of a small supportive team of like minded health care professionals.

This role has 2 key components; holding clinics within the health centre which operates on an appointment based triage system and completing medication rounds within the facility.

This is a truly unique opportunity where you will be involved in the many aspects of general practice including assessment, treatment planning and implementing plans of care.

As a professional you are open to working within a multicultural environment, you have a certain robustness while respecting others backgrounds. An understanding of culturally appropriate delivery of health services to Maori is important.

You are confident and competent in your clinical ability, self managing and happy to work independently. The health centre operates a rostered shift system over 7 days from 6.00am – 10.00pm so flexibility is needed.

A current APC and full drivers licence is essential and we are seeking applications from those already working in New Zealand. 

At Ara Poutama we have five values that act as a guide for everything we do. They are:

Rangatira (Leadership) - we demonstrate leadership and are accountable
Manaaki (Respect) - we care for and respect everyone
Wairua (Spirituality) - we are unified and focused in our efforts
Kaitiaki (Guardianship) - we are responsive and responsible
Whanau (Relationships) - we develop supportive relationships
Kotahi ano te kaupapa: ko te oranga o te iwi
‘There is only one purpose to our work: the wellness and wellbeing of people'
