Can you bring a Pacific worldview to the work we are doing to achieve better health outcomes for Pacific people in Aotearoa? We know many areas of the health system are not working well for Pacific people, aiga, ngutuare tangata, famili, kāinga, magafoa, kaiga, vuvale and kaaiga (families) and communities. In fact, Pacific health inequities are observed throughout the lifecourse, from pregnancy and early childhood through to older age.
In Pacific Health, we have a clear vision of a system that allows the strength of Pacific families and community voice to be at the heart of what we do, delivering equitable health outcomes for Pacific people and a future where Pacific families live longer, healthier lives.
The Pacific values of family, service, love, reciprocity and respect, along with Pacific culture and customs, influence the way we think and every action we take.
We have an opportunity for a Group Manager, System Design and Provider Development to join our Commissioning team in a key leadership role. The primary focus of the role is to support the design and implementation of the Pacific Health commissioning framework by ensuring high trust and effective engagement across the sector and Pacific communities through proactively working to provide opportunities and eliminate issues for Pacific providers. While leading the commissioning framework development and implementation for the Business Unit, you will maintain the relationship with Pacific Providers, conduit between providers and system.
