Clinical Assessor, Older Person’s Health

Our Purpose: What We’re Here For

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you’re part of something very special. We’re world leaders in the delivery of integrated health care, and we’re always striving to Make It Better. From the carers on the front line working directly with patients and communities, to our talented support teams who enable that care, we plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. And we’re all about putting people at the heart of everything we do.



Our Culture: What Matters To Us

Ko Te Whatu Manawa Tangata

Putting people at the heart of all we do 


For us to continue putting our communities at the centre of our health system, we’re putting our own people at the centre of everything we do. Because health is ultimately all about people. What’s important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility that all our people take for delivering outcomes, and that we go about our work with integrity in all we do.


What matters to us is doing the right thing, valuing everyone, and being and staying well ourselves so we can care for our community.


The Role: What This Opportunity’s All About

We are looking for a highly motivated individual who is able to work autonomously but also part of a multi  disciplinary team. Your duties will include liaising with patients and their families to establish discharge destinations when residential care is required.

You will need to be Interai trained or willing to undertake the training required, as these assessments are an integral part of the role.

You will need have superior communication and time management skills.

A portion of this position will include coordination of the interai’s required within OPH.

This is a permanent fulltime time position 1 FTE (40 hours per week). This role is based at Burwood Hospital working across wards to suit the service. 

You’ll be a Registered Nurse or Allied health professional with a passion for Older Persons’ Health and you’ll thrive on the challenge of seeing the bigger picture for each patient.


Belonging Here: Becoming Part Of Our Story

Our people enjoy access to a fantastic benefits scheme, flexible working arrangements and a genuine and ongoing focus on career development.


We hope you’ll seriously consider joining us, but if this isn’t a good fit for you, please share the opportunity with your personal networks and help us find our next rock star!
