The Southern DHB has the largest regional coverage of all the New Zealand health boards, providing services to over 315,000 people. We take pride in the services we provide and our aim is to improve, promote and protect the health of our population. Our customers – patients, staff and communities - are at the heart of everything we do.

In order to continue meeting the needs of our community, we are working towards a system that better identifies mismatches between staffing levels and patient needs and facilitates solutions to mitigate the risks associated. Known formally as Care Capacity Demand Management, we are on the lookout for a Senior Registered Nurse to spearhead this in a Programme Manager role.

This is a fantastic opportunity to make your mark on health services across the district, through assuring patient safety and satisfaction, supporting staff health and well-being and ultimately maximising organisational efficiency.

  • Leading and collaborating on programme development, communication and implementation, and feedback loops to ensure ongoing engagement across the board


About You
