The Wise Group is a family of community organisations sharing a common purpose: to create fresh possibilities and services for the well-being of people, organisations and communities. Established in 1989, Wise Group currently employs over 1000 people across New Zealand who have a shared passion and determination to make a difference.
Together the Wise Group is one of the largest providers of mental health and well-being services in New Zealand, their work spanning health and well-being services, education and training, workforce development and research, information services and software development, employment and navigation services and business support services.
Te Pou o te Whakaaro Nui (Te Pou) is a key member of the Wise Group family, taking its place as the national centre of evidence-based workforce development for the mental health, addiction and disability sectors. Primarily funded by the Ministry of Health it partners with a range of organisations and people including service providers (DHB and NGO), training and education providers, researchers and international experts to co-design resources, tools and support to improve the sectors workforce performance.
With the recent departure of the organisations Chief Executive, Robyn Shearer, after ten years at the helm to the Ministry of Health as the Deputy Director General Mental Health at the Ministry of Health, Te Pou is now searching for its next inspirational leader to guide the organisation forward at a time brimming with opportunities. In part these opportunities relate to what is possible following the Governments Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction, its far broader review of the New Zealand Health and Disability System and its intention to establish the country’s first ever well-being framework and budget.
