Physiotherapy Job Summary:
Time for a rethink? Time for Timaru!
As a Physiotherapist, you are often dealing with people whose bodies are clearly stressed, recovering from a clinical procedure, or suffering the aftermath of some accident. While your professional focus is on helping others, what about you? You’re not immune to the pressures of big city life. Is it time to think about obtaining a better work/life balance?
Timaru could well be the answer. It’s the best of both worlds - busy enough to be exciting and a good challenge, but small enough to have an incredible lifestyle. At SCDHB, we are looking for a Community based Physiotherapist, who will love the positive, supportive environment, and the fact that you are a hop, skip and jump from the most incredible natural ‘playground’, which is the South Canterbury District.
As an experienced Physiotherapist, you will enjoy the way we work, the way everyone knows each other by name, the semi-autonomous role of assisting people within their own environments, and the fact that we strive to be the best we can. Here, career development is taken seriously and we’ll work with you to help you reach your potential.
At SCDHB we offer staff subsidised gym membership, access to inexpensive holiday accommodation at Lake Tekapo, and there’s even a gala held to celebrate the fantastic work we do. The hours of work for this role are 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday, but part-time hours may be an option.
So why not consider life in Timaru? We offer a great way to live and work.
