Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki Vacancies


Te Korowai Hauora is a holistic Kaupapa Maori Health organisation, providing a range of services to the Hauraki rōhe. We employ passionate, professional staff to fit with our friendly team culture. We value highly skilled, committed community focussed individuals to support this kaupapa. Due to internal staff movements, an exciting new and challenging opportunity has arisen for:

Kaiarahi Whanau Ora Navigator

2 roles overing the Hauraki Rohe 

As a Kaiarahi Whānau Ora Navigator you are responsible for empowering and enabling whānau and families to access services they need, to work together and build on whānau strengths to achieve self-reliance and whānau aspirations. Providing ‘wrap around’ services to whānau you will work with colleagues to ensure all whānau are met with regularly to receive identified supports. 

Navigators reflect the importance of working with all whānau members, of providing advocacy and support in accessing services and helping whānau learn new skills so they can transition from dependency to tino rangatiratanga - sel-empowerment, or as self-managing as possible.

This role is fast paced with clear contractual outcomes so strong time management and attention to detail is a must to meet targets. You will work autonomously with a caseload of 30 whānau, with wider team support from skilled health practitioners.

To succeed in this role you must have:

  • Knowledge of whakawhānaungatanga me te reo me ngā tikanga Māori concepts, as well as a willingness to learn and strengthen your knowledge of tehse concepts; 
  • A strong commitment to achieving Whānau Ora (wellness) for tangata and their whānau,
  • Relevant whānau ora tertiary qualification (health, social science) and/or experience, and/or agree to undertake Whānau Ora Diploma study.
  • Current and full drivers licence.
  • Time Management and organisation skills
  • A high level of computer literacy
  • Well established networks and strong relationships with clinical practices within tertiary, secondary and primary careboth within the local and wider communities. 
  • People skills - being able to connect through positive influence with whanau

This challenging yet rewarding role is action packed and dynamic, therefore the ability to adapt is highly essential; you must be actively organised and prepared to support whānau on their journey. Due to the nature of working with priority whānau and the urgency it involves, Navigators must be capable of working under pressure.

In return for your outstanding skills and expertise we offer a supportive and professional working environment with regular professional development opportunities and a strong focus on our core values of Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga and Kotahitanga.

To succeed in this appointment you must have a commitment to improving the accessibility of service provision to Hauraki whānau and a clear understanding of Te Taha Maori.
