When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you're part of something very special. We plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. Our primary goal is to put people at the heart of everything we do.

The Team

The South Adult Community Psychiatric Service provides an assessment and treatment service for consumers with mental illnesses aged between 18 - 65 years, and works closely with their families/ whanau - both in the community and alongside inpatient services.

The Role

These two positions will offer autonomy in how you go about your day seeing to the needs of your clients in their homes or in-and-about the community, but are underpinned by close collaboration within the multi-disciplinary team you work in, and an ability to effectively respond to, prioritise, and manage intervention and care of your caseload. You will work closely with family/whanau, primary care, community supports, our inpatient teams, and other specialist services.

This is an opportunity to work with a skilled and motivated team of professionals, who recognise the importance of providing quality care and services to their clients

Working in this position you will provide excellent holistic case management in partnership with the clients and their families/whanau

We have a strong focus on returning clients to the primary health care sector following specialist input

To be considered for this role, you will be a registered nurse with experience within Mental Health and a full clean driver's licence
