Whether it’s Matariki, Tongan Language Week or Pride Month, Kāhui Tū Kaha is a workplace where the diversity amongst us is valued and celebrated. We particularly welcome applications from people from communities that are most affected by the health inequities that we seek to redress, such as from Māori, Pacific people, disabled people, and takatāpui and rainbow communities.

Te Paepae Pātai | Frequently asked questions

Some roles have qualification requirements to begin with, others don’t. There are opportunities and support offered to work towards relevant qualifications while you work.

This very much depends on role. For some roles there is flexibility to work from home, some of the time. For other roles, the nature of our work, supporting people in times of need, means that being onsite is a must.
