Psychiatrist – Wellington – New Zealand


Wellington is located in the south of the North Island in New Zealand. The city lies on the Cook Strait, the water that separates the North Island and the South Island. Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and has about 178,000 inhabitants. It is also the political and cultural centre of New Zealand. The population is relatively young and well to do and this is reflected in excellent schools, a wide range of cultural events and more cafés and restaurants per capita than in New York. In addition, the cost of living is low and there is a lot of choice for housing.

It concerns a team that provides psychiatric care in different locations, in both clinics and hospitals. Acute and intensive clinical care is offered for people with severe mental health problems. These are patients who are too ill to be cared for at home and who need intensive care, treatment and support. The focus of treatment is on recovery and the return of patients to their homes, usually within 2-3 weeks. The team works together with the patient and his family, clinical teams and each other to promote recovery.


On behalf of this team, we are looking for a psychiatrist for a full-time, permanent position.

You will strengthen a strongly experienced and enthusiastic team. Furthermore, you will have to deal with a challenging patient population where your skills will be tested. Moreover, you will also participate in the on-call roster and should support your colleagues where necessary. The position requires close collaboration between different specialisms so you will have to deal with many different specialists.

Candidates have excellent communicational, collaboration, administrative and management skills. Lastly, one must be in possession of a valid drivers’ license.

The employer offers attractive employment conditions.
