SITUATION VACANT - COMMERCIAL MANAGER

A superb opportunity has arisen for a Commercial Manager for North Harbour Rugby Union.

North Harbour Rugby encompasses a geographical area that takes in 12 rugby clubs from the region bounded by three Harbours, Mahurangi, Waitemata and Kaipara.

The North Harbour senior side plays in the prestigious Mitre 10 Cup which is recognised as the world’s strongest domestic rugby competition; the Harbour squad topping the table in 2016 and gaining promotion to the Premiership. We are also proud to boast a strong line-up of representative teams that take part in both national and regional competitions; approximately 100 secondary school teams, and almost 300 primary school teams – in total over 10,000 registered players.

The Commercial Manager will lead the Commercial function for the Union, driving the strategic marketing and business development of North Harbour Rugby.  An accomplished relationship builder; skilled at stakeholder management; driven by results; you will be both a star ‘hunter’ as well as a ‘farmer’ who will work to diversify and develop the Union’s revenue base as well as contribute to the leadership of the business in this crucial area. 

You are likely to be confident and sociable; well-networked; with excellent communication skills and the ability to converse at all levels.  You can’t be too precious - the role will often demand that you roll up your sleeves and get ‘stuck in’.

The role also demands someone who is community-minded, as this role will also be expected to contribute towards the positive development of club and amateur rugby as well as representative rugby for the North Harbour region.
