Ko wai mātou | Our Organisation
At Te Toka Tumai | Auckland DHB we are committed to upholding Te Tiriti o Waitangi and providing culturally safe care. We value role modelling manaakitanga as demonstrated by Ngāti Whātua in the gifting of their whenua on which our hospitals stand. We aspire to having a workforce reflective of the communities we serve and achieving equitable outcomes for all.
Health inequities for Māori and all indigenous peoples, are not random, and exist because of the impacts of colonisation and its continuing processes, including structural and institutional racism (Starship, 2021). We believe that inequities in child health are preventable, unnecessary, costly and breach human rights. Starship is committed to enacting transformational change to rectify these health inequities and providing world-class care regardless of gender, ethnicity, geographic location and socioeconomic status.
It is our intention to thoroughly alter and change the fundamental nature of the current healthcare system and structure and in particular Child Health. Starship’s radical transformation will be guided by our vision of “leading equity, innovation and excellence in Child Health”. Cultural safety is widely accepted as a key capability required to achieve health equity and Pae Ora. It is referenced in most strategic documents as a key capability for our healthcare workforce, as well as most medical colleges and councils. It is a key focus for Te Toka Tumai, Auckland DHB.
Te whiwhinga mahi | The Opportunity
We are looking for a Project Manager who will support the development and implementation of a framework to build cultural safety capability within Starship. This role will focus on capability development for Tangata Te Tiriti but will encourage engagement and participation of both Māori and non-Māori kaimahi.

This programme of work will directly support our organisational strategic objectives to uphold Te Tiriti of Waitangi and achieve health equity. The role will be a critical enabler of Te Kauae Runga – Starship Child Health (Starship’s overarching strategy).
