Radiation Oncology in New Zealand’s South Island

As a Radiation Oncologist, you’re already making a difference every day, in the lives of patients, their loved ones and the wider communities who benefit from your expertise. But now you have the rare opportunity to make a difference, somewhere different – namely in the South Island of New Zealand. In many ways not much will change – you’ll still provide world-class oncology care, surrounded by world-leading technology and colleagues. Yet in other ways so much is set to change. 

Along with relocation support, Radiation Oncologists are on Tier 1 of New Zealand's Green List. Meaning they are eligible for the Straight to Residence Visa and can apply for New Zealand residency before you arrive, provided you have a job offer from an accredited employer, like us!

The quality of life here has to be lived to be believed – this is a place like no other on earth. So if you’re ready to bring true balance back to your life, while being part of an innovative, progressive and passionate oncology team, we sure have something for you. We have opportunities across two tertiary hospitals, one in Christchurch and one in Dunedin.
