Looking to travel abroad and expand your career? Is working and living in New Zealand on your bucket list? Let us help you make it happen. We have a wonderful opportunity for you here in beautiful Christchurch, South Island, NZ.

Our practice is based in the pretty suburb of Merivale, ten minutes from Christchurch’s City Centre.  We are currently seeking applications from Podiatrists to join our team. Our practice offers several key specialist areas including; Lower Limb Injury, Pain and Injury Prevention, Sports & Dance Podiatry, Ingrown Toenail Management and Cosmetic Nail Solutions. Our team of experienced Pods and dedicated admin support allows us to focus on our vision of changing the way people engage in lower limb solutions.

Have a look around our website to see who we are and what we look like. You can read our client reviews and see we are well established. 

With an emphasis on work-life balance, Merivale Podiatry’s team of Pods work flexible hours around their active lives. Your hours can be anything from 20 to 40 hours per week, depending on your adventures. We pay our Pods a salary to provide surety of income, rather than a contract rate per patient.

Our preference is for you to have at least two to three years’ experience in podiatry and be confident in what you do. Our practice is small, but we go above and beyond with our patients. We punch above our weight with specialist services, in a great community.

We can assist you with planning, visas, accommodation in the first few months, knowledge on travel, where to live, schools, doctors, and any other things you may be unsure of when moving to New Zealand.

Experience New Zealand

Christchurch, New Zealand’s most English of cities, offers you a home away from home, with the bonus of the great outdoors at your doorstep: the Southern Alps with seven ski fields within 90 minutes’ drive; mountain biking at the Christchurch Adventure Park and around the Port Hills; surfing; hiking on the multitude of trails and idyllic holiday destinations of Hanmer Springs, Akaroa, Tekapo and the West Coast. With an International Airport 15 minutes from the city, you will be superbly located to explore the rest of New Zealand, Australia, and the Pacific.

Our sporting province of Canterbury is one of the most successful in New Zealand with excellent new facilities catering for all events. Our new indoor stadium under construction will attract international sporting fixtures and concerts.

If sport and adventure is not your thing, rest assured metropolitan Christchurch has a vibrant cultural and hospitality scene.

We welcome applications from UK, Scotland, and Ireland.

No need to stress about spending hours on a CV if you don’t have one - just send us a message with an overview of what you’re currently doing and why you want a change, and we can organise a video call to discuss.
