Our Purpose: Why we do it

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: What we do

Ellesmere Hospital located in Leeston is a 10 bed busy community hospital which provides a comprehensive range of health services, including general practitioner referrals for short term care, aged residential care (including respite) and palliative and end of life care.

The Role: Where you fit in

You will need sound clinical experience, confidence in your assessment and problem solving skills, excellent interpersonal skills, proven leadership skills and the ability to work autonomously under pressure. We are looking for passionate Registered Nurse who is keen to develop their career and undertake further study to enhance the workplace within Ellesmere. Sound assessment and leadership skills, adaptability, team work, and confidence are imperative to this role.

This is a part-time (0.3 FTE), permanent position. There is a possibility that more hours could become available in the future.
