Below is an intro from Carole: 

Kia ora e te whānau
Ko wai au

Ko Whakarara tōku maunga,
Ko Ngamoko tōku awa,
Ko Ngātokimatawhaorua tōku waka,
Ko Wainui me Te Ngaere ngā marae,
Ko Ngāti Ruamahue tōku hapū,
Ko Ngāpuhi tōku iwi,
Ko Taiapo tōku whānau,
Ko Carole ahau.

As the Technical Delivery Lead, Carole will be working in the ICT team to manage the delivery of a new technology solution for medical devices. 

Carole has many years of experience working within the public and private sector. Her last role was with Oranga Tamariki in the Programme Management Office.

Carole places whakawhanaungatanga high on her list of values and is excited to join the whānau at Te Pātaka Whaioranga.

Increasing diversity in our workforce is a target we have set for ourselves as part of our Te Tiriti o Waitangi accountabilities. We hope to attract more diverse talent, so our workforce can better represent the communities we serve.
