The Opportunity / Te Whiwhinga mahi

We are keen to hear from a registered Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist who is looking for the opportunity to work as a Lymphoedema specialist in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

A key focus for the Bay of Plenty District Health Board is to build a sustainable workforce at Whakatāne Hospital whilst achieving equity in health outcomes for our Eastern Bay community.

About you | Ko wai koe

Our preferred candidate will have:

  • Experience in Lymphodema service provision and will be able to hit the ground running.
  • A current Annual Practising Certificate.
  • Passion and a drive to make a real difference through your work and have a strong cultural awareness.

We can offer you:

  • Orientation and support from the wider Outpatient team.
  • Opportunities to attend ongoing training courses.
  • Onsite Hospital gym.
  • Free carparking spaces.

Living in the sunniest place in New Zealand isn’t the only reason people have to smile in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.  Our stunning region offers NZ’s recently voted favourite beach, endless other coastlines to ancient forests and is blessed with breath-taking landscapes and rich Màori culture.  We showcase the perfect place to explore a wide range of nature-based pursuits – you don’t have to forsake your career either, in fact why not enhance it with a better work-life balance.

Bay of Plenty District Health Board recognises Te Tiriti o Waitangi as the founding document of New Zealand.  Article III of Te Tiriti o Waitangi grounds our commitment to improving equity for Māori as tāngata whenua (people of the land). It is essential that our whole workforce engages effectively with Māori and our culturally diverse community. There are opportunities here to support you to identify resources, build knowledge, and link with networks related to improving health equity.

The Bay of Plenty District Health Board has an innovative culture where staff share the principles of Compassion, All-one-team, Responsiveness and Excellence in their daily work.

All applications must be made online.
