The North Harbour Rugby Union is the preeminent sporting body in the North Harbour region with close to 10,000 registered players ranging from children playing ‘rippa rugby’ through to fully professional players, including All Blacks. We work in collaboration with our 12 vibrant Clubs and Primary and Secondary Schools throughout the region to grow and strengthen rugby and the contribution it makes to the rich fabric of our community.

The North Harbour Rugby Union Board is responsible for establishing and monitoring the strategic direction and performance of the Union on behalf of its stakeholders, and works closely with the Chief Executive and his staff to achieve this.

We now invite applications for two positions of ‘Appointed’ Board Members to join the Board. Under the Board rotation policy one Appointed Board Member vacancy arises each year. A recent change in the Union’s constitution has resulted in the need to recruit an additional Appointed Board Member this year, hence the two vacancies. (Applicants should be aware that retiring Board Members are eligible to reapply)

Given the governance role of the Board, applicants will need to have proven experience and success at a senior management or board level, preferably with a strong financial background. They will need to possess a high level of commercial awareness coupled with excellent leadership qualities that will enable them to contribute to the North Harbour Rugby Union and its constituent clubs’ success. A strong interest in rugby, from junior to professional level, and an understanding of the importance of Provincial rugby in New Zealand, is essential.

All applications should include a Curriculum Vitae and appropriate covering letter.


Please forward all applications confidentially to the attention of:

Jacqui Scheib, Executive Assistant, North Harbour Rugby Union,

P.O. Box 300-492, North Harbour, 0752 or email

Applications close 5pm Friday 27th February 2015.
