Salary Band – $70k-$78k


  • Are you a creative problem solver?
  • Are you a people person?
  • Then come and help us save lives!
  • Permanent, fulltime position (40 hours per week)


There’s a lot going on in health, with the creation of a new national agency; Te Whatu Ora Health New Zealand, and the building of the New Dunedin Hospital, now is the perfect time to jump in and help us get things done!


Mō te tūranga | About the role

This is a new role, in a new team, within Facilities & Property. You will be the Leasing & Spatial Planner, and your role is making sure all the departments across the hospitals have a suitable space to deliver their service.

Whether it’s making sure there are enough desks for a back office team such as finance or IT, or making sure there is enough waiting space and good patient flow for a clinical team like physiotherapy or ophthalmology, your role combines people and place, and will involve negotiation, interior design and planning. Sometimes it will feel like playing Tetris with departments, slotting them all in the right place, whether that’s in one of our existing buildings, or whether it’s leasing space in external properties, the ultimate aim is helping improve the health and wellbeing of your community.


See position description.
