MidCentral District Health Board currently has a new advanced clinician / leadership position in the acute mental health occupational therapy.

We are seeking someone with enthusiasm commitment and creative thinking that has the skills and vision to grow occupational therapy, support staff and work alongside others to develop the model of occupational therapy services for our consumers. You will work across the care continuum at top of scope to lead change and bring innovation and transformation to acute mental health occupational therapy.

Occupational Therapy is a critical service to be part of a new model of care focused on primary health and community rehabilitation integration to deliver positive health outcomes for patients and communities. Career development opportunities in allied health strategic leadership positions are also emerging as part of restructuring with a clear priority to develop allied health practice within the district.

MidCentral is the major provider, funder and planner of health and disability services throughout the greater Manawatu region, including the 300-bed Palmerston North Hospital.

A major drawcard of living and working in Manawatu is its central North Island location and the great lifestyle available. Lengthy commutes are not commonplace, home ownership is achievable and rental costs are not excessive. Recreational activities are plentiful to achieve an ideal work-life balance.

Employing around 2500 people, MidCentral DHB can offer a meaningful career that offers challenges, opportunities to further your skills and experience, as well as personal satisfaction of contributing to public healthcare.

International relocation package will be available.
