GM High Performance - New Zealand Rugby League

ABOUT NEW ZEALAND RUGBY LEAGUE:

Rugby league has played a significant part in New Zealand sport for over 100 years. Formed in 1910, New Zealand Rugby League (NZRL) is the governing body for the sport of rugby league in New Zealand. The NZRL catchment is divided into seven zones that service the grassroots needs of the game. These zones compete in the National Championship, as well as women’s, youth and schools’ competitions.

NZRL manages the Kiwis and Kiwi Ferns who are both currently ranked number two in the world. NZRL is not just about success on the field - it is also charged with caring for a community off-field, promoting the values of integrity, respect, leadership, courage and passion. The “more than just a game” philosophy has seen NZRL establish innovative social development programmes using rugby league to help communities improve their lives off the field.

 

PURPOSE OF THE ROLE

Reporting directly to the newly appointed CEO, the GM High Performance will be responsible for leading the strategic direction and management of the High-Performance Team. You will provide innovative, leading edge high performance initiatives for New Zealand Rugby Leagues’ professional athletes and identified amateurs, including Referees, Coaches and Team support, through the delivery of world-class high performance programmes and systems.

Critical to this role will be ensuring alignment across the entire system nationally, developing strong relationships with NRL clubs and providing significant input into the development of pathways from community to professional /national teams for men and women rugby league players in New Zealand.

The GM of High Performance will be responsible for developing the high-performance strategy, creating the platform and environment that demands standards of excellence and accountability as well as delivering world class outcomes on a sustainable basis. You will also provide High Performance support to the Kiwis, Kiwi Ferns and other National Teams’ Head Coaches.

 

KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE AND CAPABILITIES

  • Proven experience leading teams and developing a culture of excellence within a high-performance sports environment
  • Successfully managed internal and external stakeholder relationships that have been critical to the achievement of targets
  • Experience developing and delivering both high performance strategic and operational plans
  • An understanding of the characteristics of effective high-performance athlete, coach and referee development pathways with proven implementation experience
  • A background in a professional rugby league environment as a coach, manager or performance professional would be advantageous but is not critical
  • Tertiary Qualified in a related field

     

This is an exciting opportunity to lead the high-performance strategy and direction of New Zealand Rugby League at an exciting time for the organisation with other recent senior appointments.
