Full time - 40 hours per week 

Come for the nursing, stay for the lifestyle.  Gisborne is one of the sunniest places in New Zealand with warm summers and mild winters.  Its natural attractions include an extensive coastline of sandy beaches with renowned surfing breaks to natural bush and farm land. 

Hospice Tairawhiti is a small team, big on performance, providing quality end of life care in our close-knit and caring community.

We are looking for a talented, compassionate palliative care nurse to lead our small team of community hospice nurses.  The Community Hospice Nurse Team Leader is an active team member, undertaking a community nursing role, with the addition of team leadership responsibilities.  

Team fit is very important to us - you will need to be professional, caring, a great communicator and team player, have a calm and confident nature, and a positive attitude. 

You will also need a current NZ practising certificate; a minimum of 2 years experience working in a hospice or palliative care environment; a post graduate qualification in palliative care, or commitment to further study; proven or emerging leadership skills; and a  full drivers licence.

 If you feel you meet the criteria, are passionate about providing quality end of life care, and looking for that next step in your career we would love to hear from you.
