Working here

We’re always on the lookout for people like you; people who want to make a positive difference to those around them. With planning for the rebuild of Dunedin Hospital under way, we are actively looking for those who love the idea of going beyond traditional ways of working and who ask the questions “How can we do this better?”. It’s that kind of thinking that’s going to shape the future of healthcare at SDHB, so what are you waiting for?

“Right now, we have the almost unprecedented opportunity to rethink the whole health system, so we can get it right for our community and set us up for the future, It’s an incredibly exciting time.” Chris Fleming, Southern DHB CEO

We looked to more than 3,500 of our people and community members to develop our values because we wanted them to represent US. These values highlight what we feel is important when it comes to working and communicating with others; patients, whanau, colleagues, providers or other DHBs.

Our Values.

It’s as important to us, as it will be for you, that ongoing education and research are part of the intrinsic culture of our Southern health system. As a teaching hospital, our long-held partnerships with the University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic and Southern Institute of Technology enable us to learn with and from the best.

Education Partners

As you will know, the size of a hospital matters when it comes to choosing where you’ll take your next (or first) step in your career. Our hospitals are the perfect size to offer you the opportunity for hands-on, specialist-led experience. We’re also able to offer the lifestyle opportunities that are missing from most large hospitals.
