Māori Health Authority – Interim Board Nominations

Tēnā koutou katoa

The government is establishing an independent Māori Health Authority to drive hauora Māori and lead the system to make real change. As part of this reform, candidates are currently being sought for the Interim Māori Health Authority Board.

Ngāti Koata Trust has been asked to put forward nominations from the iwi so we are now seeking applications from any registered whānau members who meet the below criteria and who would like to represent Ngāti Koata on the interim Māori Health Authority Board.

We welcome expressions of interest (EoI) from those who meet the following criteria:

  • A Ngāti Koata whānau member.
  • Proven experience working in the health sector in a senior or Governance role.
  • Hauora Māori expertise (including comprehensive knowledge of Māori health issues and experience working and/or advocating for Māori outcomes).
  • In depth knowledge of the current health system.
  • A clear understanding of the shifts required to address the current health inequities.

The work program will require a significant investment of time through until 1 July 2022. It is envisaged that this could be up to 1 day per week for individual directors and up to 2-3 days a week for the Chair.

If you would like to submit an EoI please submit a full Curriculum Vitae and cover letter as part of the application process for selection by the appointments panel.

Please note that, if successful, your nomination will then be submitted via the government health reform process application procedure, which closes on Friday 18 June 2021.
