You will assist the co-ordination of a group of Māori Public Health professionals within the Public Health units while advocating for systemic and institutional change to achieve equity.
You will be encouraged to support the office with your knowledge of Te Reo me ōna tikanga and will bring with you strong networks that span Māori health professionals, promoters and Māori community leaders.
You will be accountable for the work you do and contribute positively to future outcomes for the association and public health in New Zealand.
