Orthopaedic Surgeon
Timaru

"Why not have your cake and eat it too?"

Looking for that elusive balance between public and private work, while managing to maintain an active personal life? If you are an Orthopaedic Surgeon with an interest in hip and knee arthoplasty in particular, then SCDHB/Timaru Hospital could well be the ideal place for you.

We have a genuinely rare chance for an Orthopaedic Surgeon to join our team of 4 colleagues, who seem to have found that almost elusive combination of balanced work and personal time (all of whom have busy private practices as well).

Based in the family friendly environment of Timaru, with genuine ease of access to a host of outdoor activities,together with many outstanding local sporting facilities, there is truly something here for most to pursue or develop interests in outside of work.

Given this role could sit anywhere between 0.7FTE and full-time, there is real scope to create the personal time to commit to other interests.

Professionally speaking we are looking for a generalist orthopaedic surgeon. You would be working in a facility with CT/MRI on-site, in an informal (almost extended family) atmosphere, alongside of colleagues who will be on your back to participate in outdoor pursuits, just in case you require challenges outside of the work environment.

Sound like your sort of team and work/lifestyle environment?

We think Timaru Hospital allows our clinicians a real chance to "have their cake and eat it too", so why not call and find out if that could be true for you.

Please apply for this vacancy online at https://scdhb.careercentre.net.nz

We look forward to receiving your application directly via our Careers Site.

If you have any questions regarding this role please contact our Human Resource Adviser by phoning 03 687 2388.
