New Zealand Rugby (NZR), one of New Zealand’s largest sporting organisations, is looking for a world class leader, with strong project management capability to join our winning team. The role is to support us in effectively implementing the recommendations from the recently released Respect & Responsibility Review.

This is a once in a life time opportunity to be involved in a truly ground-breaking, cultural change project.

This role will have a focus on the short-term actions and will be responsible for driving solid project management fundamentals and to ensure key milestones are met.
