The successful applicant will be able to work autonomously, as part of the learning and development team and members of MHAIDS.

  • an excellent communicator who can forge strong relationships with stakeholders 
  • able to manage a complex project and be well organised

Mō tō mātou rōpū – About our team

MHAIDS Learning and Development are a diverse team of Educators, Instructional Designers and Administrators with a range of experience from relatively new to 20+ years of experience in education or training.  Each of our team have their own brief on the areas they deliver education but the vision is to create a supportive cohesive team. The team is responsible for organising and delivering programs that support workforce development and capability across all MHAIDS staff. We also work collaboratively with other subject matter experts (Lived experience, Whānau,) to deliver training in a variety of other areas.

Moū – About you

Our Psychology Intern Coordinator needs to be passionate about growing and developing the clinical psychology workforce.  Ideally, you will have knowledge of the educational requirements and support needs for psychology interns.  You will be a New Zealand Registered Clinical Psychologist with a current APC and professional membership.  You will have proven supervision skills.  Being able to work autonomously and maintain effective key relationships are attributes for this position to be effective.

A good sense of humour would be beneficial but not essential in doing this role but there are times when the challenges can seem difficult. A capacity to work both independently and as part of a team is vital to the role.
