Permanent full-time role, Wellington based

A strong primary health care system is central to improving the health of all New Zealanders and reducing health inequalities between different population groups. Our primary health care system needs to: support people to live well, stay well and get well; ensure people understand and are able to access the care they need; provide care closer to where people live and work and; keep people at the centre of decision-making.

If you are an enthusiastic, passionate person with lots of energy and a keen interest in working to help improve health outcomes, then read on as we would love to hear from you.

We have an opportunity for someone looking for a new challenge, to work as an Advisor in the Primary Care team. The role is an ideal opportunity for you if you are wanting to: share or advance your understanding of the primary care health system; contribute to service design and implementation; be part of a busy collaborative team; and make a strong contribution to a key health priority.

It would be an advantage if you:

  • are a skilled oral and written communicator
  • engage well with internal and external stakeholders
  • have relevant tertiary qualifications
  • have skills in understanding and analysing data and
  • can demonstrate an ability to work both independently and as part of a team with a flexible, ‘can do’ attitude.

You will also ideally have an understanding of the health and disability sector (primary health care sector an advantage) and experience in working in central government.
