Do you thrive in an environment where you can be part of shaping something new? Are you looking for a role that will have a positive impact on the lives of all people in Aotearoa New Zealand?

The Mental Health and Wellbeing Commission opened its doors on 9 February 2021 to bring leadership and oversight to the transformation of our mental health and addiction system, and to contribute to better and equitable mental health and wellbeing outcomes for all people in Aotearoa.

This is a fixed-term position to support the establishment of project processes and the monitoring outputs in the coming year.

The Corporate Services team supports the organisation's work programme. As part of the team the Project Coordinator plays an important role in the delivery of critical pieces of work including the Commission's work programmes.

In addition, the role:

  • coordinates reports around wellbeing, mental health and addiction services
  • establishes processes and procedures on how to coordinate projects in the Commission
  • provides timely project support in coordinating the Commission's work programmes, ensuring operational capability
  • works alongside technical experts to ensure projects are delivered to standard on time.

We are looking for someone with proven experience coordinating or managing projects such as the delivery of an external report or publication. Ideally, some of your experience will be within the process development space or you are proactive in creating processes, developing, and refining them.

This is a great time to join our small team and contribute to improving mental health and wellbeing for Māori, for our priority population groups, and for all people living in Aotearoa.

As a Te Tiriti o Waitangi-grounded organisation, we are committed to fulfilling our responsibility as an independent Crown entity to honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi and work in partnership with Māori as tangata whenua.

We want our workforce to be a reflection of our communities across Aotearoa and are actively seeking applications from people who represent that diversity.
