CHOOSE Christchurch where Radiation Therapists are the superheroes of healthcare. We’re ordinary people providing extraordinary care and achieving amazing outcomes for our patients.

Want to be a superhero– committed to high quality patient care, and using your problem solving skills with the most sophisticated technology, then Christchurch Hospital is where all the action is. There’s always something happening, we’re always looking at changing, improving, doing things better.

We’re decision makers not button pushers. Our radiation therapy suite is state of the art – with the most modern Elekta and Varian technology –you’ll be part of some exciting work. We’re internationally acknowledged for our integration of image-guided radiation therapy into daily treatment. We’re actively engaged in multi-centre research trials exploring the new frontiers of radiation therapy.

Christchurch Hospital staff have the opportunity to rotate through all areas of the department including treatment planning and CT. We spot people with talent who want to develop their leadership skills. We also have specialist roles within the team to give you the opportunity to be a leader in specific areas including HDR Brachytherapy, IMRT, Clinical Education and Information Technology.

We’re proud of our paediatric oncology service (where we are involved all the way through the patient journey) we work with patients and family transforming the radiotherapy experience from scary to exciting.

Be part of a team who are genuinely friendly, fun and very social. We especially like to support and celebrate the people we care for and the people we work with. We are award winning – taking out the “Best supporters” prize at the Hospital Touch Rugby tournament.

Our goal is to make Radiation Therapy the best possible experience for our patients – in every aspect – including meeting their psychosocial needs. After the disruption of the earthquake – we were back on track, treating patients two days later. Christchurch is rebuilding and so is the Canterbury DHB.

Radiation Therapists are exceptional people with very specific skills – and Christchurch Hospital is a great place to be making use of your exceptional technical and patient care skills while making the most of our amazing environment with friendly and supportive colleagues.
