Welcome to Tūruki

Tūruki is the Māori health workforce development strategy for the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board, providing scholarships for Māori, career advice and support, Tuakana/Teina internships and other educational initiatives.

The Hawke’s Bay DHB is the largest, progressive employer in Hawke’s Bay. Healthcare is a personally rewarding job, well-paid and a career pathway for life. Hawke’s Bay has a shortage of Māori healthcare workers and needs more to address the health concerns of Māori people living in our region. If you’re wanting a healthcare career in Hawke’s Bay, or want the opportunity to develop your career, take a look at the following opportunities available through Tūruki.

#MAHIALERT Te Pāti Māori are looking for that special person to join our Leader's Office team, based in Wellington. We are on the hunt for someone who has a range of skills; someone that can advance our strategy, support our Co-Leaders and team, move between writing and coordinating communications, to giving advice on policy; someone who can manaaki manuhiri, a critical thinker that can sweep the floor when needed.

Our Leader's Office structure is one that is integrated and whānau based ("integrated" is code word for "we all do everything"😂) You will join a team of Kaiarahi who you will end up referring to as your whānau.

Ko te mea nui rawa atu - me pūmau tō aronga ki te kaupapa o te Mana Motuhake me te Tino Rangatiratanga. So if you would like to take a risk and step into the Unapologetic World 🌏 of Rawiri Waititi MP and Debbie Ngarewa-Packer, click on the link below ⬇️ and apply now! You will have a blast, we promise!

Ps - You must also come with a sense of humour....lord knows this whare needs a bit of it! 😂
