Sarcha Every, co-Founder/Director of Christchurch-based executive and governance recruitment and strategic human resources consultancy Decipher Group, has recently been appointed to the Board of Trustees of the Māia Health Foundation.

The Māia Health Foundation is on a mission to enhance the health experience in Canterbury – taking it from good to great. With some bold and ambitious fundraising targets, Māia has successfully delivered two vital projects for Waipapa (Christchurch Hospital Hagley) including a larger roof top helipad and clinical support unit and enhancements to the children’s facilities. The Foundation’s current focus is raising funds for an outpatient facility for child and youth mental health.

With their roots firmly based in Canterbury, Decipher Group have been delivering an array of recruitment, organisational design and human resources solutions to businesses throughout New Zealand for the last 13 years. As a founding director, Sarcha Every has worked with a diverse range of businesses and has extensive business management and recruitment experience in New Zealand and abroad. A specialist in executive and governance recruitment, Sarcha has been increasingly providing her support in a governance capacity for other businesses including as a regular guest speaker at Institute of Director (NZ) member events.

“At its heart, our business is all about connecting people, businesses and opportunities. When it comes to client and candidate relationships, we firmly believe that by working together we can all achieve remarkable things. This extends to our commitment to our community. Through fundraising, sponsorship, volunteering and pro bono contributions Decipher Group maintains strong links with and are passionate supporters of, our wider community. It is something that is incredibly important to us and has been the cornerstone of our business since its foundation,” said Sarcha Every.

“The Māia Health Foundation has been one of those organisations that we have been proud to partner with over the years. Having the opportunity to now be part of this amazing group of people and be contributing in a way that will have meaningful impact in helping to build a world class health system is something that is truly special,” added Sarcha Every.

Chair of Māia Health Foundation Garth Gallaway says “Sarcha brings a wealth of business management experience to the Board and she enhances the passion that the Trustees feel for the projects that we support; taking our health services in Canterbury from good to great…and beyond.”

Sarcha joined the Board of Trustees in 2021.
