We are looking for an enthusiastic Clinical Psychologist to join our General Paediatrics Team, in a fixed term parental leave cover position for 13 months.

In this role you will participate in all aspects of our clinical service, teaching, and quality improvement and assurance activities. On-going professional development and clinical supervision is provided in collaboration with our Consult Liaison Service.  

We provide a flexible work environment, with a team of like-minded professionals who are passionate about their work. We offer a nice balance of autonomy and team work, and collegial support from other psychologists who work in child health.

Starship Child Health is the only tertiary children’s hospital in New Zealand. The General Paediatrics service provides specialist paediatric medical assessment and management for children and young people who live in the central Auckland area, with additional support for children with complex health needs from around the country.

The role is outpatient based. Children and young people are referred by members of the General Paediatric team, and you will work closely with the team. In addition you will occasionally take acute calls during normal working hours for our inpatient Consult Liaison Service (one day every few weeks).

We highly value people who can apply professional judgement and common sense to sometimes undifferentiated presentations, and make the most of their skills to the benefit of young people and their families.
