Clinic Manager / Registered Hand Therapist – Dunedin

Dunedin; A Lifestyle Destination

This is a fantastic opportunity to fix that work life balance you have been thinking about with a shorter commute, affordable local housing (many still under $500k), mountains and beaches on your doorstep. Why sit in traffic for hours when you could drive to work in 5 minutes or even walk??

Sick of lockdowns? Geographically, Dunedin is far away from Covid hotspots and may provide you with a more stable environment to live and work.

With a flight time of less than two hours, you can fly directly from Dunedin to Auckland so friends and family are never far away.

The Role

Our current manager is moving to Wellington to take over one of our larger clinics so this is a great opportunity to develop and lead a team of hand therapists working closely with multiple referrers. You will oversee a varied caseload including acute trauma, post-surgical intervention, ACC and Ministry of Health patients, providing comprehensive assessment, treatment and rehabilitation service to patients referred with upper limb conditions.  We certainly have a diverse and interesting client base.

Our proven career pathways develop competent and passionate clinicians who genuinely make a difference in their patients’ lives. High job satisfaction ensures we retain the best people, passing on their knowledge to the leaders of the future.


Our remuneration packages are aligned with the skills and experience you bring to the role, and we are happy to discuss potential rates with you. We also have a Wellness package that includes an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), free flu jabs, fruit available in the clinic and an App for retail discounts.

Hours of work

This is a full-time role but we are happy to consider how those hours would best suit you so that you could work around children or leisure activities to get the best work/life balance to suit your priorities.
