As part of this three-year programme we now seek a leader experienced with workforce development. As a talented Workforce Development Lead, we expect you to lead and manage a variety of workforce related duties associated with the Whānau as First Navigators programme.

You will be accountable for workforce planning, capability development, and relationship management associated with the newly launched programme.
