Consultant Geriatric Psychiatrist

Medical Specialty: Psychiatry

A fantastic opportunity in our Capital City, Wellington, which took over the role of capital in 1865. Today, Parliament and the Beehive building alongside it, are national icons.

Wellington itself is built on dramatic hills surrounding one of the southern hemisphere’s largest deep water ports. The Wellington region takes up the southern end of the North Island. Most people here live in the four cities at the south western corner – Wellington, Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt and Porirua. The Wellington region consists also of the Kapiti and Wairarapa regions.

Wellington City is wedged between steep hills and the sea. Rugged mountain ranges (the Rimutakas and the Tararuas) are beyond the harbour. The diversity of natural resources means within 10-15 minutes, you can be walking or mountain biking in native bush or kayaking around the coastline.

The capital’s location has created a walkable central business district that encourages a now-famous café and craft beer culture. The creative, IT, education and government sectors combine in a way that means it always does feel like there’s something going on. The Lonely Planet called Wellington the world’s “coolest little capital”. Our team are in agreement on this.
