Alcohol & Drug Clinician – Adult Community Mental Health & Addiction Services (1.0FTE, fixed term)

This is a full time fixed term position ending late September 2022, working between 8.00am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Are you seeking that role with real impact and meaning? Would you like to see the tangible outcome of your work, in your community, every day? At Northland DHB, we’re driving health equality for Te Tai Tokerau, and we want you to be a part of our diverse and passionate whānau.

Join Northland DHB and you’ll quickly discover you’re more than part of the team – you belong to our family. Right now, we have an exciting opportunity for a skilled Alcohol and Drug Clinician to join our community based multidisciplinary team.

Applicants will be qualified health professionals with a current registration (such as a Registered Nurse, Social Worker, Counsellor, or be eligible for DAPAANZ registration), and have experience working in the alcohol and drug field preferably with skills in assessing and treating people experiencing co-existing disorders.

We are a team that develops good working relationships with other providers, and are looking for a clinician who is innovative in their practice to deliver positive outcomes for our service users and community.
