Mō te tūnga | About the role

If your idea of a perfect work life balance is being part of a small community with the backdrop of the spectacular West Coast, then this is the role for you!

Outside of work, you will have access to some of the Aotearoa’s best kept scenic secrets, with the Buller especially popular for tramping, rafting, canoeing and many other outdoor pursuits. As well as low cost housing, daily flights from Westport to Wellington and Queenstown.

Although you will be based in the community, you will be provided with access to education, training and support from the team at Te Nikau and collegially supported by your central and southern colleagues providing LMC care.
