  • About the Opportunity

    Our Planning & Funding have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Project Manager to join the team on a fixed-term basis until 30 / 06 / 2023.

    This critical role has been developed to work as part of a team to advance planning and system development initiatives in the South.

    About you

    This is a role where your exemplary aptitude for networking and facilitation will be well utilised. You will be working with a wide variety of clinical and non-clinical stakeholders to pull together outputs including :

  • An evidence and health data informed assessment of future population health needs in Central Otago / Queenstown Lakes
  • A plan and recommendations on the necessary health services to meet these needs.
  • As such, developing connected partnerships from across the health system will be required, alongside pulling together insights and assessments from different stakeholders.

    You will be able to adapt and respond to enthusiastic stakeholders in an environment that is complex and challenging.

    Previous experience in the health or social sector, or evidence of transferrable skills is required. Note that the use of data and intelligence to bring evidence to planning activities is central to the role.

    While stakeholders will support generation of epidemiological and system performance data, you will need to develop a high-level understanding of different data sources that services use for planning and monitoring outputs and outcomes, to synthesise and communicate findings that are relevant for planning.

    You will need to be resilient, persistent, and focused on the end goals as we want to make a significant difference, but you will be supported by extremely professional colleagues - all dedicated to lifting the bar.

    This really is a unique opportunity to help set us up for the future as we continue to transform the models of care and services we provide to our diverse communities.

    If you are looking for a challenging role with great job satisfaction, then apply now!
