Youth Consumer Advisors – Te Roopu Kimiora

Have you used or are currently using youth services? If you have, we are looking for a young, motivated and energetic individual like you to come work with us in Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services. If you are studying this could be ideal as it is one day a week initially.

You will provide advice on service design and delivery, and how we can improve the experiences of both youth and their whānau.

Northland DHB is committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and holds stewardship for equitable health outcomes for Māori as Tāngata Whenua as the highest priority.

Part of the role will be that you will work closely with other organisations in order to build resilient youth networks. That means that we need you to be comfortable with connecting with youth and their whānau.

As part of the management team, you will help us ensure that we are always client focused. We will also need you to be open to supervision and have a willingness to learn new skills needed in the job. Lastly, we need you to be able to bring to us the thoughts, feelings and voice of the youth community as it impacts on us all.

To be considered for this role you must hold or be able to obtain a full drivers licence.

If this opportunity interests you, come join us on our journey.

A career with Northland DHB will see you action meaningful change in the region we love, and in your professional development – all whilst enjoying everything the stunning North has to offer. You really can enjoy the best of both.
