Clinical Needs Assessor

Permanent Part Time 0.7 FTE


An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our Allied Health team as a Clinical Needs Assessor at Dunstan Hospital.  We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated Clinical Needs Assessor predominantly based in the community. The applicant must be a qualified, registered Allied Health Professional or Nurse with a current practicing certificate and New Zealand driver’s license.   


The role involves assessing client’s health and social needs using the interRAI assessment tool, creating a care plan that is client centered and goal focused.  This includes developing multi-agency care packages to support and maintain the health of older people in our region.


The successful applicant will require exceptional interviewing, assessment, and problem-solving skills. You will have high standards of professional practice and the ability to work in a rural interdisciplinary setting. 


Ideally you will have experience working with older people in either a hospital, community, or an aged care environment.  Previous experience with the use of interRAI is preferred but not essential. Training in interRAI is available and on-going support is provided.  The interRAI assessment tool is electronic, so excellent computer skills are essential.

Our Clinical Needs Assessors service Central Otago and the Queenstown Lakes Area. 


Applicants for this position must have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
