Job Description

Senior Communications & Engagement Manager

Lead the development of communication and engagement strategies

In the role of Senior Communications & Engagement Manager you will work with a dynamic General Manager who is the former Managing Director of one of the largest PR agencies in NZ and former NZ head of the largest PR agency in Australasia. Company Strategy, Organisational Performance and Human Resources are other responsibilities of the General Manager and your team mates, so you will be at the beating heart of the organisation.

NZ Health Partnerships is a young organisation open to innovation, doing things differently and finding ways to evolve in order to meet the needs of DHBs which are our customers and shareholders.

You will lead the development of a Communication and Engagement Strategy for a transformative national-level multi-year project that will provide real value to the country's 20 DHBs. The ultimate goal of the project and indeed that of NZ Health Partnerships is to support DHBs to provide the best possible care to the communities they serve.

This role will suit an energetic individual with at least eight years' experience in communication and engagement within a PR agency, corporate or public sector environment.


Why you are the ideal candidate:

This is a communications role so we expect that your written communication skills are superb. Let's repeat that...your written skills are superb. You can also translate complex ideas and processes into compelling visual communications and diagrams.

You are tertiary qualified in communications, public relations, media or related discipline and possess an excellent working knowledge of communication and engagement methodologies.

Our stakeholders are really important to us and in this role it is essential that you have solid experience in building stakeholder engagement in a sensitive and complex environment. Government and media relations experience are also desired.


About NZ Health Partnerships:

There are increasing demands being placed on the health system, from an aging population, the cost of new technologies and growth of long term conditions such as mental health issues and obesity.

One way we can help mitigate rising costs is by facilitating greater collaboration amongst our shareholders. By thinking, acting and investing collaboratively, DHBs can achieve greater savings and realise greater value than they would by operating independently.

However, what we do is about more than cost reduction. While the organisation's primary focus is on administrative, support and procurement activities, most of our work has direct or indirect clinical benefits. Ultimately patient-care is at the core of what we do. 


If you are an experienced communications professional, highly motivated and want to make a difference to the health and wellbeing of New Zealanders, please apply online. Should you wish to learn more about NZ Health Partnerships please visit Applications close Sunday 22 October.
