About the Group
The Historic Claims Team works with claimants through an alternative dispute resolution process to help them understand their past experience in care. We acknowledge and recognise harm done, and take steps to put this right. We also provide Oranga Tamariki and other care providers with information about what has occurred in the past to help ensure claimants’ experiences do not happen to others. A key focus of the team is continual improvement based on feedback from all parts of the system to ensure we deliver the best possible outcomes for claimants, and that they encounter mana manaaki (a positive experience every time) whenever they come into contact with us.
About the Role
The Information/Senior Information Coordinator provides timely responses to requests for information that support the assessment and resolution of claims for people who have been abused in State care.
