Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi. Engari, he toa takitini.

Success is not the work of one, but the work of many.

  • Casual position

Do you want to work as part of a diverse service delivering high quality, patient focused care? We are looking for a Registered Health Practitioner to be part of the Emergency Mental Health (EMHS) team.

This will involve working collaboratively with the Emergency Department, Community Mental Health, Home-Based Treatment, Mental Health Inpatient Service, GPs, Psychiatrists and the Police.

You'll join a supportive team who manage crisis situations over a 24/7 roster. The primary function of the EMHS team is to provide comprehensive psychiatric assessment and treatment to people presenting in mental health crisis.

The successful candidate will be joining a department that is committed to continuing improvement for the wellbeing of patient care. You'll be innovative, energetic and show clinical excellence.

For those who aren't already living in Hawke's Bay and making the most of what's on offer, you should know it boasts an enviable lifestyle with great homes, superb schools, a burgeoning economy, and no traffic headaches. Whether you like living by the sea, next to the river, nestled in the hills, in a village community, or an art deco city...Hawke's Bay has it all.

You won't find this opportunity just anywhere, and when you combine this with the chance to live in New Zealand's own piece of paradise, you have to ask yourself 'why work anywhere else'? Take a stroll through the Hawke' Bay Tourism website and get yourself to Hawke's Bay!
