Working at NRA

NRA is a limited liability company registered under the Companies Act. It is owned by 3 Auckland DHBs, with equal voting rights.

NRA is governed by a Board comprising of 2 directors from each shareholding DHB and 2 directors appointed from Northland DHB.

The Chair of the NRA is appointed by the directors and holds office for a 2 year period, following which the directors will elect a new chairperson.

NRA’s organisation structure comprises 3 hubs which align with its 3 key areas of focus:

  • Workforce Development and RMO Operations
  • Regional Health Services -  Planning, Coordination and Delivery
  • Corporate and Business Support

These hubs are managed by Portfolio Managers who ensure the delivery of NRA’s goals and targets.

NRA is committed to the principles of Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), and it takes its responsibility as a good employer very seriously. The organisation has undertaken considerable work to ensure its employer obligations have been met and policies are in place to guide staff and managers.

The NRA regularly reviews its workforce profile, analysing its current situation, identifying gaps and issues of concern. It will take action to address issues, evaluate the effectiveness of these actions and plan future actions in order to ensure that any discrimination and unintended barriers to Equal Opportunities are eliminated. This assists in ensuring that the NRA has productive and talented staff who reflect the wider community.

Delivering on its stated outcomes requires robust Leadership, Partnership, Integrity, Innovation, Respect, Professionalism and Equity to be in place. The success of this objective is measured by high staff morale, staff confidence in the organisation and staff perception of fairness and equity.
