If you are looking to make a difference to the health and wellbeing of tamariki in your community, we have the role for you.

Right now we have an opportunity for either a skilled Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist who has a passion for working with tamariki and their whānau, to join our supportive multi-disciplinary team based in a whanau-friendly setting away from the main hospital.

In this role you will be providing assessment, therapy management, education and support in partnership with whānau to enable tamariki with developmental ncerns aged 0-3 years to achieve optimum function and well-being.

You will have strong communication skills and a proven ability to work both independently and as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
