Calder Health Centre Practice Manager - Auckland City Mission

A rare, special and challenging opportunity.

Our Mission:

Together we stand with those in desperate need.

We provide immediate relief and pathways to enable long term wellbeing.

Calder Health Centre Practice Manager

This is a role that will appeal to an experienced and skilled Practice Manager who wishes to play a key part in achieving Auckland City Mission’s aim of developing and promoting a model of primary health care delivery which is consistent with the goals and principles of the Primary Health Care Strategy, Te Tiriti o Waitangi and meets the health needs of some of our City’s most marginalised people with multiple health and social issues.

Auckland City Mission

Auckland City Mission has, for almost 100 years, providing a range of Social Services for those in desperate need. While the people, their needs and consequently our services have changed over that time our philosophy of giving not charity but a chance has not.

The services we offer at present are focused on giving a chance to people who are sleeping rough or who are inadequately housed, those who struggle with food insecurity, with drug and alcohol addiction, who need affordable primary healthcare, or any of the above and more.

The Calder Health Centre is one of the “highest need” general practices in New Zealand and is focused primarily on the most vulnerable in the Auckland City Centre. We aim to provide affordable, accessible, acceptable and appropriate primary health care for those enrolled and for those who may present in crisis.

The Role

Reporting directly to the General Manager Social Services the Practice Manager is responsible for the overall management of the non-clinical aspects of the practice, including people management, financial management, and patient communication and follow-up
