About our team / Mo te tima
The Division of Health Sciences Maori Health Workforce Development Unit (MHWDU) are seeking a dynamic and highly motivated individual to join our team.
This is an exciting opportunity to step into a high energy, frontline role delivering Te Whakapuawai, a comprehensive (and very successful) programme to support Maori students into and through the academically challenging Health Sciences First Year (HSFY) course.
The overarching goal of Te Whakapuawai is to increase the number of Maori HSFY progressing into Otagos health professional programmes and health science degree study, ensuring that students feel well-supported and well-informed to achieve their goals.
The role / Te mahi
This is an academic position wherein the ideal candidate will be provided full support and training to develop a high level of expertise in programme delivery, evaluation and student advising in a kaupapa Maori office environment.
This role requires a proven ability to establish rapport and the skills to foster whakawhanaungatanga / a sense of belonging, amongst Maori HSFY students.
An excellent understanding of the factors associated with successful transition of students through university study is an advantage.
Outstanding organisation and communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team are imperative. Data management (tracking and monitoring) and research and programme development are integral components of the role (development in this area will be fully supported).
Experience working with Maori and knowledge of tikanga (or a willingness to learn rapidly) are essential. Ideally you will be familiar with the university environment or tertiary sector and eager to learn more.
If you feel you have the skills to make a significant contribution to support Maori students to achieve academic excellence and to take the HSFY Maori Te Whakapuawai programme to the next level, we would like to hear from you!
