About the role
The Portfolio Manager is responsible for strategic management and planning of integrated population health services. This includes the direct management of maternal and child wellbeing provider contracts, monitoring and reporting, and wider project and portfolio contributions in population health services. This latter work includes supporting the Population Health Service Manager and the Primary Health Service Manager with their program and portfolio planning and advancement.
Accordingly, in this district-wide role, an understanding of the layers of different strategic planning and policy environments is critical to ensure alignment of population health service development with localities, and annual, regional, and national planning.
As a natural relationship builder, you will be comfortable actively engaging with a range of stakeholders at all levels of the organisation.
To be successful in this position, you will also need to demonstrate the following:
- Experience in portfolio management, financial planning, and budget management
- Commitment to application of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and developing an equitable health system that achieves positive outcomes for all
- Ability to apply risk assessment approaches and mitigation
- Excellent computing and organisational skills
Experience in health would be an advantage but is not essential. Orientation to the health system will be provided for the incumbent to support getting up to speed if required.
As this is a district-wide role, travel may be required, therefore a full, clean NZ driver's license is required.
The Southern district offers the benefits of excellent amenities, first class primary through to tertiary education, affordable housing, and outstanding recreational opportunities. Whether it's surfing, kayaking, or sailing; skiing, hunting, or fishing; theatre, live-music, or art - there's literally something for everyone.
