Fulton Hogan

In Dunedin in 1933, Jules Fulton and Bob Hogan teamed up to start their own contracting business. Times were tough, and they wanted to play a part in building a prosperous country. Through strong teamwork and a desire to get things done, they created the foundations of a company that continues to do good work today. Fulton Hogan employs more than 7,800 people across New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific. We continue to enjoy strong support from both of our founding families as major shareholders in Fulton Hogan. We’re also very pleased to say that over a quarter of our people are shareholders in our public non-listed company.

Strong leadership is an important part of being a successful and enduring infrastructure business. Our Board and leaders provide governance and direction so that together we can achieve our vision – being in, connecting and caring for communities.

We’re all about keeping it REAL

Energy & effort

These are the values at the core of everything we do.

We see sustainability as the only way to do business. That’s why we invest in the communities we work in, bridging gaps and creating economic value. It’s our way of improving the world we’ll live in tomorrow.

We care for the communities we operate in. Fulton Hogan and our people donate time, money and services to strengthen our communities. Through our partnerships we support wellbeing, diversity, environment, education and innovation.

Southern District Health Board

Southern DHB has a staff of approximately 4,500 and is governed by a Board made up of both publicly elected and government appointed members. The Board is accountable to the Minister of Health.

As a DHB, we are responsible for planning, funding and providing health and disability services to a population of over 304,268 located south of the Waitaki River. Our catchment area encompasses Invercargill City, Queenstown - Lakes District, Gore, rural Southland, Clutha, Central Otago, Maniototo, Waitaki District and Dunedin City.

We receive government funding of over $800 million per annum, of which approximately half is applied to traditional hospital and mental health services delivered from Southland Hospital (Invercargill), Lakes District Hospital (Queenstown), Dunedin Hospital (Dunedin) and Wakari Hospital (Dunedin). These services are managed and delivered through our own facilities and staff, collectively known as the 'Provider Arm'.

The other half of our funding is applied through contracts with a range of primary and community health providers. This funding is distributed and monitored by our 'Planning and Funding Team' to providers such as Primary Health Organisations (general practices), pharmacies, laboratories, aged residential care facilities, Pacific Island and Maori Health providers, non-governmental mental health services, rural hospitals and primary maternity facilities.

Our statutory purpose is to:

  • improve, promote and protect the health of our population
  • promote effective care and support for people in need of personal health or disability services
  • reduce health outcome disparities
  • manage national strategies and implementation plans
  • develop and implement strategies for the specific health needs of our local population.

Given the broad scope of our services, we offer a huge range of career opportunities. As well as health professionals we employ management and administration professionals, cleaners, maintenance and security staff, food workers, accountants, IT professionals, telephonists, orderlies, human resources and communications/marketing staff – the list is endless.

Health is a fast-paced environment, which is always changing, making Southern DHB an exciting place to work.

At Southern DHB, they believe in fostering the education of health professionals and providing development opportunities for our staff.

All our hospitals are teaching facilities, working in close collaboration with the University of Otago, Southern Institute of Technology and Otago Polytechnic.
