Positions Vacant


We have an exciting opportunity for a new permanent position available for a suitably qualified Otolaryngologist.

As a Specialist Otolaryngologist you be joining a team of three Otolaryngologists who work collaboratively and with innovation to provide high quality care to ENT patients with a wide range of acute and elective surgical conditions.

There is ample opportunity to develop a subspecialist interest that will complement the department’s current service. We enjoy good collegial relationships with other departments, allied medical health professionals and close links with tertiary services. The department is well equipped for all aspects of modern ENT health care.

Hawke's Bay DHB is situated in Hastings, New Zealand. It is a large secondary level, 400 bed accredited public hospital providing acute and elective care for a region of over 162,000 people. The hospital is a modern facility with a large range of surgical, medical, oncology and radiological services.

Hawke’s Bay is famous for its weather, wine, food, cultural events and outdoor recreational activities. It is a great place to bring up children with a number of excellent schools. Overall Hawke’s Bay offers an enviable lifestyle for you and your family, with a choice of urban or rural living and no traffic headaches.

You won’t find this opportunity just anywhere, and when you combine this with the chance to live in New Zealand’s own piece of paradise, you have to ask yourself “why work anywhere else”? Take a stroll through the Hawke’s Bay Tourism website and get yourself to Hawke’s Bay!

Applicants must be registered, or eligible for registration, with the Medical Council of New Zealand as a Specialist Otolaryngologist and a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, or equivalent.
