Pacific Health Promoter needed at Community and Public Health

Wednesday, January 12, 2022   Posted in: Vacancies By: Administrator With tags: pacific health, health promotion, public health, vacancies

Utilise your in-depth knowledge of Hauora Māori and your strong connections with Canterbury Pasifika communities to promote healthy environments. Bring your passion for health and wellbeing and make a difference in the Canterbury community.

This is a fixed term full time position (40 hours per week) until October 2022.

The Communities Team has an equity focus in helping communities to identify and address their specific health priorities, including but not limited to housing, active transport, sexual health, nutrition, mental wellbeing and smokefree. We work in various settings such as kura/schools, churches, and workplaces to promote health and wellbeing, reduce inequalities and work alongside focus populations to support them in building on their strengths to address identified needs.

In this role, you will be responsible for:

  • Taking a community development approach to delivering culturally appropriate health promotion;
  • Working collaboratively with other relevant health providers and communities to identify and address health priorities;
  • Developing and implementing health promotion strategies based on the identified community needs;
  • Building and maintaining trusted relationships with communities and external health agencies.
  • Strengthening community action to support the health and wellbeing aspiration of the Pasifika community.

Note that because this role is based in a public health unit, the role’s usual responsibilities may be suspended in part or in full in order to support our public health unit to respond to the demands of COVID.

Skills required for this role include:

  • Health promotion experience along with experience working with community development is highly desirable;
  • Health promotion qualification is advantageous but not essential;
  • An understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its application to working with communities to promote health and wellbeing; and
  • A minimum of an NZ restricted driver’s license is essential (a full license is advantageous).
