Ko wai koe | About you

Are you able to hit the ground running, understand the demands and needs of an executive leader and proactively solve problems? Do you enjoy using your initiative and juggling multiple tasks while remaining calm under pressure?

We are looking for someone like you who as a key member of the Chief Executive’s office will work closely with the Executive Management team, HPA’s Board and the wider organisation. Your relationship skills will be a key strength and your secretariat skills and discretion will ensure the Office of the Chief Executive is well supported while the current incumbent is on parental leave.

If this sounds like you and you would like to be part of a team that leads and supports initiatives to encourage New Zealanders to live healthier lives, then we would like to hear from you.
