About the Southern DHB

Southern District Health Board (Southern DHB) exists to support everyone across our district to live well, and access the right care when they need it, by delivering high quality, patient-centred and equitable health services to our diverse communities.

We are responsible for planning, funding and providing health and disability services to a population of over 315,000 located South of the Waitaki River. Our catchment area encompasses Invercargill City, Queenstown - Lakes District, Gore, rural Southland, Clutha, Central Otago, Maniototo, Waitaki District and Dunedin City. This means Southern DHB serves the largest geographic region of all New Zealand's health boards.

 

About the Team

We offer you a warm, pleasant working environment in a modern low-rise building, very good resources and the opportunity to work and develop professionally within a progressive and friendly team that is well supported by management.  

 

About You

We’re looking for an experienced Clinical Psychologist to join our multi-disciplinary team, working with children and young people (and their families and caregivers) to provide a wide range of psychological services.

Candidates should be knowledgeable and experienced in the child and adolescent mental health field and be able to demonstrate excellent assessment (including risk assessment), formulation, and treatment planning and therapy skills. You should be a confident and effective communicator, truly passionate about your work and hold an unwavering belief in people’s recovery.

To be considered you must be registered with the NZ Psychologists Board with a Clinical Psychologist scope and hold a current Annual Practising Certificate. A current NZ drivers licence will also be required.

 

The Location

The Southern region of New Zealand offers excellent amenities, schooling, housing and recreation. We’re home to the most beautiful landscapes in NZ, if it’s the great outdoors that presses your buttons; and we’re within easy reach of Queenstown if its adrenalin you seek.  It’s all here waiting - the opportunity to create a fantastic work/life balance is within your reach.
