Withdrawal Management Nurse

Applications close 15 October 2020

Are you looking for the opportunity to work closely with clients and their families in the community, to support and promote change?

Does working across the hospital and community setting alike to support fellow clinicians with medical detox should they be requiring input/support and/or training, appeal?

Here you will take on the whole liaison role between families/services/NGO’s and effectively be the one point of contact/conduit for individuals seeking to make a major life change for the better.

What could possibly be more rewarding?

All this, plus the opportunity to develop the role from scratch, we believe makes for one very attractive position, where you will become the 'go-to person' for anyone wanting information around detox.

You would be working in a very positive team environment, where initiative is rewarded with active support.

Based in our small tight-knit multidisciplinary Addictions team, you will have time to invest in your clients and to enjoy an established structure which contributes to achieving the best outcomes for our clients. 

In working alongside your clients, you need to be a NZ Registered Nurse with relevant A&OD mental health experience, able to assume responsibility for coordination of treatment plans for withdrawal management.

So, if you have a passion for, or experience in working with adults who have drug and/or alcohol use issues, we would very much like to hear from you.
