Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi. Engari, he toa takitini.

Success is not the work of one, but the work of many.

Step into the future of Allied Health!

Full-time permanent – 80 hours per fortnight

We’re offering an experienced Occupational Therapist the chance to showcase their skills in an award winning team at the Hawke’s Bay DHB. The nationally recognised ORBIT team has won numerous awards for their approach to improving outcomes for older people. This is an exciting opportunity to join this innovative, forward thinking team!

What are the benefits to you?

  • Flexible rosters giving you regular three to four days weekends and free weekdays. Only work eight days a fortnight!
  • Excellent pay rates including penal rates for weekends and statutory holidays
  • Extra leave allowance for shift work and statutory holidays worked
  • Study support and opportunities for formal and informal CPD
  • Professional supervision and mentoring to support career development and growth

You’ll work in a rapid assessment and discharge planning capacity, keeping people in their own homes for longer and supporting those returning home. You’ll be part of an inter-disciplinary team working alongside our Emergency Department, Acute Assessment unit and Ambulance Service. You’ll have the opportunity to learn skills beyond your traditional role.

We’re looking for people with big ideas – you’ll need to be fearless, think “outside the box” and be a natural problem solver. You’ll have clinical independence and be a decision maker.

You won’t find this opportunity just anywhere, and when you combine this with the chance to live in New Zealand’s own piece of paradise, you have to ask yourself “why work anywhere else”? Take a stroll through the Hawke’s Bay Tourism website and get yourself to Hawke’s Bay!

To discuss this fantastic opportunity, please call Sarah Shanahan, engAGE Team Leader on (06) 878 8109 ext 2888 or 027-3233193 or email [email protected]
