Kōrero mō te tūranga – About the role
We are seeking an enthusiastic, passionate and experienced nurse coordinator to join our team.
This role is within a team of 3 clinical staff, one being a senior medical officer and the other another clinician. This team of 3 works in partnership with one of our Māori NGO providers, providing clinical oversight to 12 beds at an acute alternative mental health facility in the community.
The role coordinates the care of tāngata whai ora at the facility and works in close partnership with both the NGO provider, and the other members of the team.
You would be responsible for ensuring that the facility is occupied to its full capacity, and, more importantly, supporting tāngata whai ora and their whānau during their time at the facility.
Māori are significantly over represented across our service and you will need to have an understanding of inequity for Māori. Being able to work with Maaori across all levels including tāngata whai ora and whānau and Māori staff is essential to this role, so together we can achieve better outcomes for Māori.
Mō tō mātou rōpū – About our team
It’s the perfect time to join the team as we are currently in the process of reviewing the model of care, looking at strengthening our relationships with our NGO provider, and improving the experience and outcomes for tāngata whai ora and their whānau during their time within the service.
Moū – About you
A ‘you can do it’ attitude is vital part of the role, alongside being a team player. An eagerness to be part of something different with a focus on making a difference for an individual tāngata whai ora and their whānau, are all essential skills you will need to hold.
Your relationship management skills will be exceptional and you will have a proven track record of being able to bring people together to improve health outcomes and reduce Māori inequity.
