Locum New Zealand

Explore opportunities in medicine on the West Coast

Your medical career meets adventure on the West Coast

We have locum and permanent roles available on New Zealand's west coast. Get ready to immerse yourself in an untamed and natural wilderness. Visit the world's most accessible glaciers, and wander ancient rainforests - surrounded by mountains with beaches not far away you'll feel as if you've escaped to a natural paradise filled with wonders. If that wasn't enough, the bustling CBD of Christchurch is only a 3 hour's drive.

The West Coast is known for its dramatic and stunning beaches. Get amongst the waves (be sure to pack a wetsuit because it is cold), stroll along the shores, or enjoy a bite to eat at the many beachside cafes.
