About the Service | He aha te mahi

Adult Mental Health and Addiction Services provide community-focused mental health and addiction care, underpinned by recovery and harm reduction models. The community services are supported by a 24-hour seven-day a week acute/crisis service and acute admission inpatient services. The Tauranga acute inpatient unit, Te Whare Maiangiangi, provides 24 beds and the Whakatāne acute/crisis inpatient unit, Te Toki Maurere, has 10 beds. Mental Health and Addiction Services are currently in a changing environment and there is opportunity to support transformational change for future integrated service models.

The opportunity | Te Whiwhinga mahi

This is a great opportunity to make a real impact in a service which has significant opportunity for change. We are looking for two exceptional individuals to join our leadership team in Mental Health and Addictions – one in Tauranga and one in Whakatāne. These positions are new to the service and are designed to create leadership capacity and presence across both BOPDHB sites.

The successful candidates in these two positions will work collaboratively with the teams and clinical leaders to support the wider team in delivering exceptional care to our adult tangata whaiora and their family/whānau. These people will also work with PHO, NGO and other stakeholders to improve integration.

The position in Whakatāne has an additional scope to support our inpatient and child/youth services in quality and patient safety activities. You will find more details within the individual position descriptions.

About you | Ko wai koe

We are looking for professionals who are looking to utilise their leadership abilities, passion, dedication, experience, and skills to deliver the services of the future. You will be committed to building a culture of high performance and the team will appreciate your inclusive, supportive, and collaborative leadership style. You will be known as a resilient and visionary leader amongst your peers. We are looking for someone with a proven leadership and operational management experience, ideally you will have post graduate experience in Mental Health (if you are a Nurse you will also need to have Mental Health in your Scope of Practice). You will be a problem solver, a creative thinker, and enjoy thinking outside the square.
