Physiotherapy department - SCDHB

Permanent, part-time, 30 hours a week, weekdays, office hours

Life is a collection of small moments: meaningful moments, challenging moments, moments to remember. At SCDHB, we want to support our people to enjoy more of the moments that matter. Are you ready to join us?

Right now, we’re looking for a Physiotherapist with a good amount of experience to join our team here in Timaru. You will enjoy the semi-autonomous role of assisting people within their own homes, and the fact that we strive to be the best we can. In this role you will get to experience all variety and challenge you need in physiotherapy.

You will be joining our friendly and experienced team, with good opportunities for career growth and development. Here, career development is taken seriously and we’ll work with you to help you reach your potential.

Ideally, you will have excellent communication skills to help you work effectively within the team and build rapport with patients. Planning and organisational skills are essential for this busy role.

In addition to the experience you bring to us, you will have enthusiasm to further develop your skills and expertise and make a strong contribution to quality patient centered care.

Role requirements include:

  • New Zealand Registered Physiotherapist with a current APC
  • Effective planning and prioritisation skills
  • Experience in manual handling
  • Ability to work under pressure
  • A driver’s licence

You already know what a Physiotherapist does, so why choose South Canterbury DHB?

As one of the country’s smaller DHBs our people always have room to move and grow - you’ll get a wider exposure to specialties and enjoy the benefits of a flat structure: processes that run smoothly and a fun, friendly culture. With us, you’re more than just a number; you’re part of a team where everyone knows your name.

On top of all that, you’ll get to enjoy the fantastic Timaru lifestyle: between the beach and the mountains, work-life balance is truly achievable here.

At SCDHB, integrity, collaboration, accountability, respect and excellence are at the heart of everything we do. We are a proudly diverse team, as we know a diverse and inclusive workforce achieves the best outcomes for our patients and communities. If you share in these core values and bring them into every aspect of your patient care, we can’t wait for you to join us.
