Job description

Fixed Term Locum options available from 6 - 18 Months (Full time). No on-call requirement.

Planning a change of scene or sabbatical? An adventure in Wellington could be just what you need. With no on-call requirement, this could be just the ticket to getting the most out of this great city and the rest of the country!

We are looking for Locum General Orthopaedic Surgeon to join our highly regarded team of 13 permanent Orthopaedic Specialists for a fixed term appointment. We are happy to consider options from 6 to 18 months in duration.

The Orthopaedic service provides for the management of major injuries and fractures at Wellington Regional Hospital and treatment of injuries, congenital, infective, degenerative and malignant disorders of the musculoskeletal system at Wellington and Kenepuru Hospitals. We provide a regional tertiary service for patients with complex major trauma, revision joint replacement, spinal disorders, scoliosis, paediatric and hand surgery. While the role is for a General Orthopaedic Surgeon there will be a focus on hip and knee arthroplasty.

You will pride yourself on providing a high standard of clinical practice and expertise to the patients under your care. The successful candidate will be a team player and clear communicator, willing to assist with the supervision and instruction of junior medical staff within the Orthopaedic service.

To be considered for this position you must hold FRACS in Orthopaedics, or equivalent, and hold, or be eligible to hold, Vocational (specialist) Registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. CCDHB can assist with Medical Council registration and immigration requirements and can provide relocation assistance for the right candidate.

Wellington is crammed with more bars, cafes and restaurants per capita than New York, and a slew of gourmet producers including many independent coffee roasteries. Year-round you’ll find arts and cultural events in abundance. What are you waiting for?
