New Zealand Rugby League (NZRL) is the governing body for the sport of rugby league in New Zealand. Through its “More Than A Game” philosophy, NZRL aspires to transform lives and community wellbeing through Rugby League.
Ngā Ringa Āwhina is an initiative designed to increase capability across the rugby league network at all levels in New Zealand. A team of trained and supported specialists will be deployed into regions across New Zealand. Alongside and supporting personnel in the regions they will upskill and develop existing personnel, make immediate improvements where possible, and better support the Zones, Districts and Clubs for the future.
This initiative is aligned to Sport NZ’s objectives for Strengthen and Adapt (i.e. fit for purpose, supporting the needs of participants, driving increased participation and addressing inclusion and diversity gaps) and priority focus areas, in particular integrity, disability, women and girls, governance.
The kaupapa of the project comes from the translation of Ngā Ringa Āwhina meaning ‘helping or supportive hands’ and encapsulates the concept of working alongside Zones, Districts, Clubs and communities, as a partner, enabling them to retain and enhance their mana and independence.
The National Capability Officers will work to build the capability of New Zealand Rugby League’s (NZRL) Zones, Districts and Clubs through providing resources, best practice processes, thought leadership, guidance and support. You will be the key point of contact for Zones, Districts and Clubs to ensure they have the right tools and resources to help develop capability, build sustainability and optimise facility/club usage.
You will ensure they have sound financial management and governance practices, assist them to understand the process required to apply for trust / grant funding, ensure their player database and club registration information is up to date as well as promoting professional development opportunities through courses or forums.
This is a rare opportunity to help develop capability, build sustainability and optimize facility/club usage for Rugby League Zones, Districts and Clubs throughout New Zealand!
