This is an exciting opportunity to move into a senior support/leadership role within a passionate and motivated team who deliver excellent specialist palliative care to patients in the Nelson/Tasman region.

Hours of work are expected to be Mon, Tue, Thurs & Fri 8-4.30, however, additional hours may be required from time to time to cover leave.

You will be able to inspire and motivate a team while working alongside them with your flexible and supportive approach.
