NZRL is seeking applications for board directors on behalf of an independent appointments panel that manages the recruitment process across the country’s seven administrative zones.
All board positions are for a term of three years.
Rugby league is a sport for all New Zealanders, played at the grassroots and on the international stage.
The sport is “more than just a game” – it is part of the social fabric of our country, and has a critical role in developing young men and women in some of our most “at risk” communities.
The game’s domestic governance model is based on seven geographic zones:
- Akarana (comprising North Harbour, Waitakere & Auckland Central)
- Upper Central (comprising Bay of Plenty, Gisborne & Waikato)
- Mid Central (comprising Hawke’s Bay, Manawatu, Taranaki & Wanganui)
- Southern (entire South Island)
The independent appointments panel is charged with ensuring the zone boards have collective skills and experience in commerce, finance and marketing. Board members will also need to have effective decision-making skills, well-developed relationship-management skills and sound judgement.
The boards are responsible for ensuring sound governance practices and processes, and setting clear goals and measurable targets within the sport of rugby league in New Zealand.
Applications forms can be downloaded here.
All applications will be treated in strict confidence and must include a CV, covering letter and a completed application form.
Applications close 5pm, Monday, March 9.
