Cancer Society Auckland Northland - Te Kahui Matepukupuku o Tamaki Makaurau me Tai Tokerau

Poipoia te kakano – kia puawai

Nurture the seed and it will blossom

 

Cancer Society Auckland Northland is looking for a proven health promotion manager to lead its team working on effective public health strategies to prevent cancer.

 

The Cancer Society’s mission is to improve community wellbeing by reducing the incidence and impact of cancer. Reducing cancer inequities is a priority for the organisation, especially for Māori who experience a disproportionally high burden of cancer mortality and morbidity. Te Tiriti o Waitangi is foundational to our work to address this both internally and across the health system.

 

We are looking for someone who can provide public health leadership in implementing evidence-based cancer prevention strategies in the areas of tobacco, alcohol, obesity and UV radiation. Our focus is on working collaboratively to influence policies and legislation that ensure healthier environments. This includes using research evidence, engaging relevant communities and stakeholders, building relationships with decision makers and undertaking media advocacy.

 

The Health Promotion Manager is responsible for a small team based in Auckland and Northland and is part of the Division’s Senior Management Team. All departments in the Division are engaged in addressing cancer inequities, in consultation with the Federation’s Chief Executives, Boards and Te Roopu Māori. 

 

If you are a proven leader with strong networks and relationships, a good understanding of evidence based public health practice and experience in policy advocacy, we would love to hear from you.

 

Skills and experience we are looking for include a strong track record in establishing effective collaborations, cultural competency, a clear understanding of the Te Tiriti o Waitangi and effective communication and presentation skills. An appropriate qualification in Public Health, Health Promotion or other relevant qualification is essential.

 

A dynamic and supportive work environment and full use vehicle are available to the successful applicant. Free car parking is also provided.

 

If you can say yes to the above, then please apply now with an up-to-date CV and cover letter that outline why you are suitable for this role. If you have questions about the role or would like a job description, please email Sally Liggins - sliggins@akcansoc.org.nz
