The New Zealand Psychologists Board is a responsible authority established under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 (HPCA Act). Its purpose is to protect the health and safety of members of the public by providing mechanisms to ensure that health practitioners are fit and competent to practise. The Minister appoints a variety of people to responsible authorities.
On behalf of Hon Dr David Clark, Minister of Health, we are currently seeking applications/nominations for two health practitioners, and one layperson for two year terms of office.
Health Practitioner applicants must be registered to practice in New Zealand.
Ideally, you will be registered, or qualified to practice as a psychologist.
Layperson applicants cannot be, or qualified to be, registered as a health practitioner.
For all applicants, it would also be beneficial if you have experience in board/committee governance in the health or NGO sector, and experience in strategy, communications and marketing. Applications from psychologists holding a non-clinical scope of practice (eg education, industrial/organisational, counselling) would be preferred to ensure balance in board membership.
Applicants from across New Zealand are also welcome.
To nominate someone, or apply yourself, the following are required:
a declaration form for the relevant position, completed by you/the nominee (attached)
a covering letter, detailing your/the nominee’s experience that is relevant to the New Zealand Psychologists Board and why the position is of interest to you/them
a current CV.
Nominations/applications must be made using the Ministry’s online Career centre and close 30 November 2018.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email the Government and Executive Advisory team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
