Dietitian, Primary Care (Fixed term - 12 months)

Full Time, 40 hours per week
Fixed term contract – 12 months

We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic Dietitian to join our friendly team based on the West Coast, Greymouth.

Because this position will challenge your innovation, clinical competence and communication skills, it is our preference that you have some experience with primary and community dietetic services, however, new graduates will also be considered and provided with support and mentoring.

This role primarily involves working with our general practices to support people in their weight loss journeys, their lifestyle changes to reduce their risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and provide education for our primary care teams.

NZ Dietetic Registration and a current driver’s licence are essential.

The West Coast PHOs focus is to promote and enable better health for the population on the West Coast.  With this in mind staff working at the PHO are expected to lead by example and therefore only non-smokers should apply for this position.

 

Applications close 5pm Friday 26 May 2017.
