People matter at Counties Manukau Health and we need someone who wants to help us hire and support people with disabilities.
This role is FTE, working 16 hours a week across Monday to Friday, days and times are flexible. The role is part of our Organisational Development (OD) team who work on improving our colleagues experience of working at Counties through better people practices, and better management and leadership.
About us :
Counties Manukau Health is the largest employer in South Auckland employing over 8,000 staff spread across 23 different sites, working within a complex environment providing the best care for the community we serve.
Our vision is to work in partnership with our communities to improve the health status of all, with particular emphasis on Maaori and Pacific peoples and other communities with health disparities.
It’s a great time to be joining the health sector. The changes we will go through in the next few years will make our work more exciting and interesting.
We were pleased to be awarded the Accessibility Tick in 2020 and this represented welcome public recognition. More importantly, it reinforces our intention to make it easier for Counties Manukau Health to become more inclusive and accessible for employees with disabilities.
About you :
This role presents an opportunity to partner with colleagues to improve our inclusion of employees with disabilities, and to contribute to a positive, people centred culture.
Ideally, you will also bring expertise in OD disciplines, including organisational assessment, facilitation, and coaching.
You will work to make Counties a more accessible workplace through helping us attract and employ people with disabilities, and through supporting their (and their manager’s) work experience.
You need to be a champion for people with disabilities; and, a confident communicator who can engage effectively with senior leaders, staff, and colleagues.
You will have the confidence to build strong relationships, especially with employees with a disability and their managers.
You will thrive on making things better, understanding the root cause of an issue and solving immediate problems. Great work has already occurred to put in place an internal Employment Disability Support Service to support employees, applicants and managers through the hiring and on-boarding processes.
You will help continue this work. Depending on workloads, you may also work on other OD related initiatives and projects.
We are a values based and inclusive organisation that is committed to delivering the best health outcomes for our community.
To help us achieve this we need a workforce that reflects the population we serve. We strongly encourage applications from all backgrounds and from people who share our values and have a passion to work in our community.
We would greatly value seeing applications from people with disabilities, and from our Maaori and Pacific communities. It’s important to us that the diversity of our OD team reflects the diversity of the people in our community.
