The closing date for applications is 5.00pm on 4 May 2018.

POSITION BRIEF INDEPENDENT DIRECTOR NEW ZEALAND RUGBY LEAGUE INC

Background

Rugby league is a sport for all New Zealanders, played from the grassroots level to 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. For more information on the organisation, please visit www.nzrl.co.nz

The NZRL Board plays a significant role in the organisation’s success, providing surety to stakeholders, both within NZ and internationally. It is preparing itself for a busy future. 2018 sees tests against England in Denver Colorado (a first) and end of season tour to the UK and France and a triple header against Australia in October. The game is developing strongly and a guiding hand is required to ensure both domestic and international success for our men and women in all facets of the game.

The Board comprises seven directors; four appointed and three elected. Of the seven there must be three Rugby League Knowledgeable and three independent directors. A Board Appointment Panel, comprising of two independent Sport NZ representatives, an individual nominated from the Zones and a nominee of the NZRL board, is convening this appointment process.

Positions

The Panel is seeking applicants for one Appointed director vacancy. No incumbents are re-applying as this role has arisen due to a current director reaching their term limit. Candidates who have the skill sets set out below and who can bring an element of diversity to the current board mix will be looked upon favourably by the Appointments Panel.

The skills the Panel is looking for in the appointment includes:

Essential
• Experience in creating and implementing High Performance Sports programmes
• Previous board experience

Desirable
• Strategic change and organizational rebuild experience
• Experience of revenue generation in a sporting framework
• Understanding of the New Zealand sport funding landscape / governance network
• Strong commercial and sporting networks, including in Australia

All board members need to understand confidentiality, work collaboratively, possess sound judgment, have good communication and be able to demonstrate leadership ability. Applicants can have a general, rather than specific, knowledge of rugby league.

Time commitment and term As a guide, we expect an average time commitment of 1 to 1.5 days each month per director. Full day board meetings are held monthly in Auckland.
We anticipate the roles starting in June 2018. Typically terms are four years and directors are eligible for re-appointment for one further term.

Remuneration Directors are paid $12,000 per annum.

Interviews
All applicants must be available for interview in Penrose, Auckland on the morning of 16 May 2018.
