Would you like to be considered for ministerial appointment to the Northern, Central or Southern Regional Health School (RHS) boards of trustees for a term of up to 3 years?

RHS provide flexible education services throughout the country to meet the diverse learning needs of school-aged students whose health conditions prevent them from attending their regular school. Each school services a region covered by the various district health boards. The schools’ administrative centres are in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Does this sound like you?

Trustees need a balance of skills and experience. They need to work well in a team, be forward-thinking and innovative and be able to put plans in place for the school's future. Great communication skills, a willingness to ask challenging questions and excellent organisational skills will also contribute to the ongoing effectiveness of the board.

It would also be beneficial to have an understanding of school governance systems and structures or experience or knowledge in areas such as education, finance, law, property, human resources, health and/or the social sector. Understanding the interfaces between health, education and the welfare system and their impact on students is also desirable.

We welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds, including Māori, Pacific and those with disabilities, who will enrich our understanding of the education system.

If you have an interest in the education of these students, you can view the application pack and apply online through our Careers Centre
