Invercargill, Southland 

Permanent, full-time (40 hours per week)

Here at Southern DHB, we’re up to the challenge of realising our vision of Better Health, Better Lives, Whanau Ora; and to help us achieve this we’re very focused on bringing into our organisation people who display our values of being Kind, Open and Positive, with a sense of Community.

We are looking to recruit a suitably qualified and experienced Mental Health Professional to fill this role working with children and adolescents (and their families), with mental health difficulties. If you have experience in the provision of psychotherapy on an individual or group basis and you’re passionate with an unwavering belief in people’s recovery – then you might just be the one for us!

You must be a Registered Health Professional, with a current APC – Registered Nurse, Occupational Therapist or Social Worker with experience in working within a mental health sector with children, adolescents and their families.  You will also require a full NZ driver’s licence.

Joining our multi-disciplinary team of Psychiatrists, Clinical Psychologists, Registered Nurses and Social Workers, you’ll work with a broad-based generic caseload, utilising your mental health experience with excellent assessment and intervention skills.  As someone committed to the MDT approach with a focus on excellent service delivery, you’ll also appreciate that we offer ongoing tailored professional development specific to our Mental Health team.

Down here in the South, life is good!  You’ll have heard about the mountains, epic scenery and the genuine friendliness of the Southern people, but there is more to know…so don’t hesitate.  Contact us now for more information or if this sounds like the place you want to be, then apply now.

Closing date: Friday 26 October 2018.
