Just 15 minutes from the capital, hop on a train, bus or ferry to explore seaside villages and New Zealand’s first organised European settlement. Discover art, boutique shopping, craft brews and beverages made using pure artesian water – on tap for you at Te Puna Wai Ora.

Lower Hutt's riverside location makes it attractive in any season. It is an outdoor haven filled with picturesque walking and cycling trails, expansive coastal views and nature sanctuaries including a chance to wander hills where wild native kiwi roam.

The Infant Child Adolescent Mental Health Service (ICAMHS) is a community mental health service, which is part of Mental Health, Addictions & Intellectual Disability Service (MHAIDS) 3DHB. This covers Capital and Coast DHB (Wellington), Hutt Valley DHB (Lower Hutt) and the Wairarapa (Masterton).

This role is based at Hutt Hospital which allows you the options of Wellington or Lower Hutt as bases for you and your family.

Wellington’s location at the centre of New Zealand won Wellington the role of capital in 1865. Today, Parliament and the Beehive building alongside it are national icons. Wellington is approximately 8½ hours from Auckland by road, about an hour by air. The South Island is a three-hour scenic ferry ride away across Cook Strait.

Wellington itself is built on dramatic hills surrounding one of the southern hemisphere’s largest deep water ports. The Wellington region takes up the southern end of the North Island. Most people here live in the four cities at the south western corner - Wellington, Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt and Porirua. The Wellington region consists also of the Kapiti and Wairarapa regions. For now, the region has 3 separate District Health Boards: Capital and Coast, Wairarapa and Hutt Valley; although they work together to form 3DHB.

Wellington City is wedged between steep hills and the sea. Rugged mountain ranges (the Rimutakas and the Tararuas) are beyond the harbour. The diversity of natural resources means within 10-15 minutes, you can be walking or mountain biking in native bush or kayaking around the coastline.

The capital's location has created a walkable central business district that encourages a now-famous café and craft beer culture. The creative, IT, education and government sectors combine in a way that means it always does feel like there’s something going on. In 2011 Lonely Planet called Wellington the world’s “coolest little capital”;

The DHB is seeking a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist to join the multi-disciplinary teams, comprising of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, psychotherapists, and administration staff.
