Te whiwhinga mahi | The Opportunity
The Pae Ora legislation gives us the mandate and opportunity to create a system of commissioning that has the needs of whānau and communities at its heart. In this new model, we are not ‘commissioners' holding the power. We are Te Tiriti o Waitangi partners and allies, we are listeners of diverse voices, we are holders of the space for communities and whānau to lead. We are a team of teams who live within and reflect the communities we serve.
We are responsible for designing community-based systems of care, agreeing health and wellbeing plans, executing those plans, and monitoring outcomes which then feed into the design process. We work in partnership with our Te Whatu Ora and Te Aka Whai Ora colleagues to shape system-wide public health services across the motu.
The Senior Locality Manager is the most senior commissioning manager within and across a set of localities. They are responsible for establishing localities alongside Locality Development Advisors and developing authentic long-term relationships with IMPBs, health providers, wider social sector funders and providers, local government, and communities across their localities.
Their role is a path smoother for localities, helping to solve identified problems and issues through working with their Te Whatu Ora colleagues, Te Aka Whai Ora and the wider social sector across their localities.
This role is based in Whanganui. Location can be discussed at time of interview.
