Your New Company

Working for the Canterbury District Health Board – working for the Community. At its core, our vision is dependent on achieving a truly collaborative, ‘whole of system’ approach where everyone in the health system works together to do the right thing for the patient and the right thing for the system and our community as a whole.

Your New Role

You will work closely with patients, and alongside Physiotherapists with expertise in their specialities. 

What You Will Bring to the Role

Bring a strong desire to be part of a team and an eagerness to be your best – be dedicated to continued learning and striving for the best patient outcomes.  Strong communication and interpersonal skills as well as the ability to follow direction are essential to your success as you assist your Physiotherapist colleagues in delivering treatment and rehabilitation plans in an acute hospital setting.
