About the mahi
Harbour Hospice is future focused. We strive to deliver the best possible care and support to patients, family and whānau. We also play a key role in developing our external communities in their palliative care practice. The Education Manager will ensure we have a highly skilled and future ready workforce aligned to our strategic objectives.
The role has a wide scope, but the key focus is on developing the clinical skills of our workforce and strengthening palliative care practice in our external healthcare communities. We’re looking for someone to also take ownership of learning across the organisation, who will conduct skills gaps analysis, then develop and implement a variety of learning interventions for both clinical and non-clinical roles.
This role is ideally full time, but we will consider applicants looking for 32 - 40 hours per week.
With experience in a health care environment or clinical education, you have a natural curiosity and love to inspire and motivate others. You may have designed and delivered learning programmes and materials using a wide variety of tools and methods including e-learning, to a range of learners. You can effectively engage with diverse groups of health professionals, at all levels. You’re well organised and self-motivated, with the drive to set and exceed high standards. You will also demonstrate:
- Qualification in a health related area, and/or education, adult learning or similar
- Proven experience as a leader educating and developing teams
- Understanding of the particular learning needs and challenges in the health sector (preferred)
- Knowledge of principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and biculturalism
- A valid, clean full driver’s licence
