Atu mo te mahi | About the role
Every year, more than 3000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with bowel cancer and more than 1200 die from it. Māori and Pasifika people are more likely than other groups to die from bowel cancer, partly because they are more likely to be diagnosed at an advanced stage.
The National Bowel Screening Programme is free for people aged 60 to 74 years. It aims to save lives by finding bowel cancer at an early stage when it can often be successfully treated. This is your chance to be part of a bowel screening programme aiming to help reduce inequities through early diagnosis and treatment.
As a service co-ordinator you’ll be handling calls to answer questions and encourage people to take part in the programme and entering data into the database.
Our Wellington call centre operates Monday – Friday (8 – 6 pm, rostered).
