Come and make this the defining role of your career. It’s the chance to excel and grow professionally – surrounded by dedicated, supportive and highly talented colleagues. Yet it’s also a huge opportunity to help shape and guide the evolution of our Blood and Cancer Service – setting us up with the best people, processes, and patient-centred care. What’s more – while you’ll thrive in the professional challenge and satisfaction this creates – you’ll be enjoying it all while living in one of the most enviable locations in the world: stunning Southern New Zealand. We are dedicated to giving everything we’ve got to creating a world-class haematology and oncology service for our communities and our team. So if you’re ready to give it your all to be part of this exciting journey, read on.

This is a remarkable opportunity for a true team player who thrives in a highly supportive, collaborative environment. You’ll be welcomed into a small but highly effective haematology team – one that’s committed to delivering safe, best practice clinical and laboratory services to patients. Expect your experience to have every chance to shine through here, as you help mentor, teach and train others in the team. It will no doubt deliver great professional reward, as will the contribution you’ll make to overseeing the inpatient and outpatient management of our patients undergoing treatment for acute leukaemia, high grade lymphoma and other malignant and non-malignant haematological disorders.

In addition to your impressive experience in delivering a high standard of clinical practice in Haematology, you’ll come to us with an extensive background in clinical and laboratory haematology, with sub-speciality experience and research in aspects of malignant or non-malignant haematology. Equally as important will be your adaptability and, ideally, experience in clinical teaching.

If you share our passion for innovation and continuous improvement in patient centred care and are excited at the prospect of helping us create and navigate our future path, we’re keen to hear from you.

We will be screening applications before the closing date to ensure we can start interviewing once the role closes on Friday, 15 July 2022 but this may be closed earlier.

If this role has sparked your interest but does not match your current clinical skills, we have a range of clinical roles, get in touch as there could be a place for you!
