With a head office based in Palmerston North, Te Pae Oranga has deep relationships with iwi across our rohe, and plays a critical role in advancing health equity for Māori.  As well as our roles in advocacy and monitoring, we are now also developing our commissioning role.

Our mission is to “influence and advance Hauora Māori planning, commission monitoring and success across our rohe’s wellbeing sector, through a mātauranga Māori lens, underpinned by whanau voice.”

As our Chief Executive you will lead our organisation while working closely with our board, mana whenua, community, the health sector and other key stakeholders.  You will role-model an unwavering focus on our values, inspiring and empowering our kaimahi, as well as championing equity and innovation.  You will ensure effective delivery of our work programme whilst remaining agile and open to change given the ongoing changes in the health sector.
