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.
