Partners in Care Improvement Facilitator

Supporting change and improving Primary Health service delivery

Are you a passionate health professional who is keen to support change and improve service delivery in primary health? 

Mahitahi Hauora is a newly formed primary health entity established to transform how primary healthcare is delivered in Northland.  Our vision is to support a primary health care system that sustains equitable self-determined wellbeing and ensures every person in Northland can live a long and healthy life. 

Our Partners in Care Improvement Facilitators work closely with our general practices, and Maori health providers supporting them through change programmes, new models of healthcare and service delivery to improve and ensure the delivery of services to our enrolled primary health population is sustainable and accessible.  

Ideally you will have worked in primary health, however, if you are passionate about improving primary healthcare service delivery, supporting practices and providers that are delivering the services, and have some form of healthcare background, then this opportunity could be for you.  This is a busy role that would suit a health professional looking for a position that does not have direct patient contact but one that supports those that do. 

This role would also suit a relationship-driven person who likes to make a difference, enjoys an autonomous role while also being an integral part of a team.

The role requires someone with:

  • The ability to develop strong relationships with other health professionals and clinicians in primary care
  • Experience in facilitation of organisational change, and implementation of new strategies and initiatives
  • Proven ability to engage with and influence people to adopt new models or systems
  • High level of IT competency including MS suite
  • Excellence in verbal and written communications
  • A commitment to quality improvement in general practice and primary healthcare

 A New Zealand registered health professional would be preferred for the role but we will consider other candidates with applicable skills. 

You must have an unencumbered NZ Driver Licence and the legal right to work in NZ.  Health professionals will be supported to maintain their Annual Practising Certificate.

If you have the above skills and are committed to supporting and developing primary care teams to deliver healthcare initiatives, then please apply. 

If you have the skills and experience detailed, please apply by forwarding your covering letter and CV to Joanne Mason, HR People First Organisation Assistant, at

Applications close: Wednesday 25 September, 5pm
