The Board of Te Ao Maramatanga has created a new role of College Manager and invite all interested parties to get in touch.


Are you looking for a change and want to be part of a team leading the profession of mental health nursing in New Zealand?

We are looking for a person who demonstrates an inclusive and engaging leadership style and has proven ability to work effectively with Māori to achieve organisational goals. If you are a nurse with an understanding of the mental health sector in NZ and looking for a part-time role with flexible hours, then this maybe an opportunity for you.

As the College Manager, you will have an integral coordination and leadership role in the day to day operations of the College. You will act as the conduit between the Board and College contractors (who support the delivery of College Operations), to ensure actions are delivered and those responsible are held accountable for their contribution. 

Your role will include supporting our Credentialing Programme that supports and endorses enrolled nurses, registered nurses or nurse practitioners, working in primary healthcare settings, who wish to develop their knowledge, skills and experience to provide best practice mental health and addiction responses and interventions in a primary care setting.

We would contract you to work 16 hours a week. These hours are negotiable over the course of the month as some weeks may be busier than others. After-hours work would be required as the voluntary board meets monthly in the evening. As required this role would fulfil the secretariate function for the board. You will directly report to the College President. The term is for 12 months and will be then reviewed.

Please take time to read the job description.
