Te whiwhinga mahi | The Opportunity
Funding has been made available for the Allied Health workforce to expand capacity and capability across the Te Manawa Taki region. The workforce development is the response to a high demand for specialty resourcing requirements in our critical care services. Allied Health have signalled the need for educators and coaches to provide ongoing education and upskilling of key members of the workforce to ensure resilience and retention of staff. Embedded throughout the critical care workforce development is the need to grow and develop a workforce that reflects the community we serve to ensure we improve the health of Maaori and Pacific people.
The educator roles will be profession specific with the allocation of a Principle Educator within the group to support the coordination and collaboration across the interdisciplinary team, critical care units and region. As these roles will work across the Te Manawa Taki region, in the adult critical care service, the ability to travel between sites is essential. There is some potential flexibility in the FTE outlined below.
The following roles fixed term until 30 June 2024:
0.5 FTE Occupational Therapy
