Te Roopu Kaitiaki – Expressions of Interest

To submit an application, please submit your CV and Cover letter outlining the following aspects:

We are seeking expressions of interest to form a Roopu Kaitiaki, comprised of members drawn from whānau, hapū, Iwi, communities and local government. They will ultimately be responsible for upholding the mana of the Taikorihi kaupapa and the voices of Te Hiku.

We are seeking members who live in Te Hiku, and ideally, have knowledge of the health and wellbeing aspects of whānau, as they will also be required to support the development of processes and policies for the Taikorihi operations team. 

In the group there will be two whānau members appointed to represent the interests of Māori communities in Te Hiku, while two community members will also be appointed to represent the wider Te Hiku community at large. 

The Roopu Kaitiaki will serve the collective interests and aspirations of the people of Te Hiku, while developing proactive, future-focused and robust leadership as the Taikorihi objectives start to be realised.

The Roopu Kaitiaki will be a key tool in the Taikorihi model. We hope to receive a wide range of diverse expressions of interest from people who are passionate about seeing the people of Te Hiku thriving in a local health system that meets their needs.
