Explore careers in Health

Do you want to make a difference to people’s lives every day, contribute to improving Māori health and wellbeing, and be a change maker? If you want great job opportunities and a meaningful job that is going to be needed in future, you might be interested in a career in the health and disability sector!

The Health and disabilities sector needs Māori workers! In Taranaki and Aotearoa our Māori population is growing rapidly!  There is a big need for Māori health professionals, both in clinical and non-clinical roles, to work with our whānau and communities.  Health and disability careers are exciting and rewarding – there is no time to get bored!

In health the pay is good, there is heaps of variety, many opportunities to grow and the chance to make a difference every day for your whānau and communities. Our Māori whānau often prefer seeing Māori who can understand and relate to them, and being Māori means you can bring a relevant and highly valuable perspective to the sector

The health sector has major shortages in many areas and this is likely to continue – for example there is a huge national shortage of nurses currently. There is no shortage of jobs available which means great job security! Jobs are currently available for all education and experience levels – anybody can start a career in health.
