Living Here

Life in New Zealand is paradise. Life in southern New Zealand is even more stand-out.

Welcome to what almost everyone would describe as New Zealand’s most beautiful region. Not only are we home to the snow-capped mountains, impressive glaciers, flowing rivers and mirror lakes that are the stuff of movies and postcards – we’ve also got the lifestyle and work to match. Our communities are welcoming and family-friendly, with great schools, an extremely affordable cost of living, and plenty to do on your time off – from skiing, water sports, world-class food and wine, and cities and towns full of culture and charm.

We’ve got two large, modern hospitals in Dunedin and Invercargill, as well as a range of smaller rural hospitals – so there’s plenty of opportunity for you to grow your career. We can’t wait to welcome you with our Southern smiles!
