Information about working and living in New Zealand:
Located in the South Pacific, New Zealand may have a relatively small population (approximately 4.5 million) but we're right up there on the world stage in many areas. Whether it is sports, arts or culture we're proud of what we've achieved and healthcare is no exception.

New Zealand has an excellent public health system. Eighteen Districts of varying sizes are responsible to provide or fund the provision of health services both in hospitals and the community. Each year the health sector works to achieve national health targets, which means there is a continual need for skilled professionals.

Right now, we have opportunities for experienced Audiologists to join our teams across the country - from the winterless north through to the beautiful south. If a work-life balance is important to you, New Zealand could be the perfect place to grow your career.
