Orthopaedic SurgeonScdhb New
Timaru

"Why not have your cake and eat it too?"

Looking for that elusive balance between public hospital work, while managing to maintain an active personal life?

If you are an Orthopaedic Surgeon with an interest in hip and knee arthoplasty in particular, then this could be the ideal place for you.

We have a genuinely rare chance for an Orthopaedic Surgeon to join our team of 4 colleagues, who seem to have found that almost elusive combination of balanced work and personal time. Initially this is a fixed term role for 3 months, but may well convert over into a permanent opportunity, so here is a chance to "try before you buy" potentially.

While this role is full-time, there is real scope to create the personal time to commit to other interests, as our after-hours expectations are not overwhelming.

Based in the family friendly environment of Timaru, with genuine ease of access to a host of outdoor activities, together with many outstanding local sporting facilities, there is truly something here for most to pursue or develop interests in outside of work.

Professionally speaking we are looking for a generalist orthopaedic surgeon. You would be working in a facility with CT/MRI on-site, in an informal (almost extended family like) atmosphere.

Sound like your sort of team and work/lifestyle environment?

Please apply for this vacancy online at https://scdhb.careercentre.net.nz/job/orthopaedic-surgeon/timaru-hospital/9700

Questions? Please contact our Human Resource Adviser on +64 3 687 2388.

Please be aware, if you are an overseas candidate The Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) have introduced a new method of primary source verification. Please visit the NZMC website for more details about these changes, and the other requirements needed to be met toward gaining NZ Registration https://www.mcnz.org.nz/get-registered/
