Role 1 is a role working with young people who present with an eating disorder. Preferably we would like someone with Family Based Therapy training (Maudsley).

Role 2 is a Nurse Practitioner role however we know these professionals are “as rare as hens teeth’ in CAFS and so we are opening this up to either Nursing or Social work.

Role 3 is for a Clinical Psychologist, covering assessment, therapy, preferable training in CBT, DBT, ACT.

We feel our team is unique, we genuinely like each other, are able to work and to play together and appreciate humour.

We have a great mix of experienced and fledgeling staff who are motivated and full of creative energy and a management team who are keen to support us in our creation of a CAMHS centre of excellence!

If you have clinical experience in a CAMH Service and are a registered professional we can offer you some challenging and rewarding experiences, great team support and access to some ever-growing training opportunities!
Palmerston North has access to wonderfully wild beaches (25 mins away) an incredibly friendly population and because of the university a diverse and energetic city scene.
