Permanent, full-time/part-time 64 - 80 hours per fortnight (0.8 - 1.0FTE)

Te Whatu Ora Hawke’s Bay has an immediate need for a specialist who is committed to develop their career and work in a very collegial work environment.

The busy service provides over 3,000 endoscopy procedures per year and approximately 2,000 outpatient appointments. The team currently comprises three gastroenterologists, and a team of nurses lead by two registered nurses with extensive gastroenterology outpatient, and endoscopy experience.

As our successful candidate, you will have proven skills and experience in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy. On application, please include a summary of your endoscopy experience. An ability to perform ERCP and large EMR would be desirable but not essential.

The hospital is a modern facility with a full range of surgical, medical, oncology and radiological services, including MRI, and is one of the largest provincial hospitals in New Zealand. The Regional hospital in Hastings also has links to Te Whatu Ora rural services in Wairoa and Waipukurau.

Ruakopito is our newly built start of the art facility, on the campus in Hastings that means all our patient-based gastroenterology services are housed in one place providing 2 procedure rooms, patient recovery, resource and administration areas, clinic spaces and meeting rooms.

The successful applicant should have FRACP and be registered (or is eligible for registration) as a specialist with the Medical Council of New Zealand.

We have no doubt that you will love everything Hawke’s Bay has to offer. Situated on the east coast of the North Island, enjoy the stunning climate and beaches, a wide range of sporting and leisure opportunities, wine, food and cultural activities. An environment and work/life balance that is second to none. Take a stroll through the Hawke’s Bay Tourism website and get yourself to Hawke’s Bay!
