About the Role

Sheffield Search is assisting the New Zealand Rugby Commercial Board Appointments Panel to facilitate the recruitment of two independent board members, and now formally invites applications from suitably qualified, international or nationally based individuals, to join the inaugural board. 


Skills and Experience

High level skills and qualities to be considered carefully for the board, which will assist and guide the decision-making process amongst other factors, include either of:

  • Technology/Digital/Content: including digital product management, consumer data, and digital performance marketing designed to engage millions of consumers/fans through superior digital content. 
  • Commercial Experience/Acumen: including broad new product and income stream development and commercialisation at a global level, particularly in the sports and/or entertainment sectors.

NZRC is committed to encouraging diversity in both gender and ethnicity as a source of rigorous decision-making.

A track record of building trust and transparency at Senior Executive, Board and/or complex stakeholder levels in fast paced, dynamic organisations will be crucial in considering potential candidates for these governance positions.
