Working at NZ Rugby

Marketing & Communications Advisor

Wellington - Wellington City

  • Two new permanent Wellington based roles
  • Your chance to market rugby and tell our story
  • Fun and fast-paced workplace

New Zealand Rugby (NZR), is looking for two talented Marketing & Communications Advisors to join our team.

Three to five years of marketing is a must and previous communications experience preferred.

We’re looking for people who bring fresh strategic thinking to their work with a proven track record of converting those ideas to results.

You’ll have strong writing skills, be media savvy, have social media experience and understand NZR’s diverse community.

We’re looking for people who can juggle multiple projects across different teams with a focus on promoting social change and getting more New Zealanders involved in rugby.

You won’t need to know the offside rules, but you will need to be able to spot a good story when you see one, and turn it into a successful communications or marketing opportunity.

As a Marketing & Communications Advisor, you will work with, and support, the Communications Managers to develop and implement proactive communication and marketing plans and programmes.

We are a small team so the tasks will be varied from producing marketing materials, writing and editing content, proactive media relations and helping develop marketing and communications plans.

If you’re creative, strategic, love developing messages that work, like to have fun and want to be part of an organisation that reaches every community in New Zealand, we want to hear from you.

The ideal candidate must obtain a clear Ministry of Justice Criminal Convictions check.

Applications close 5.00pm on Sunday 23 July
