The Poverty Bay Rugby Football Union invites applications for two vacancies for the position of Independent Board Member.  The two vacancies are for a three year term, commencing 21 March 2019.

The roles require a corporate governance focus, with responsibilities for setting the strategic direction for rugby in the Poverty Bay region and monitoring the performance of all aspects of the business, while taking into account the interests of all relevant stakeholders. The selection panel will make their decision based on a set skills matrix that requires candidates with experience in:

  • Finance and Business
  • Legal and Human Resources
  • Sports Governance
  • Marketing and Revenue Generation.

Although knowledge of and empathy for rugby are beneficial, it is not necessarily a pre-requisite of the positions.

Independent Board Members must not be, or on appointment must immediately cease to be, either an employee of the Poverty Bay Rugby Football Union, or a member of the Council of Clubs.

The appointments are for a three-year term and are appointed, not elected, positions.

All applications should include a CV, confirmation of independence as defined above, and an appropriate covering letter. They should be forwarded to:

Josh Willoughby CEO PBRFU


Mail to: P.O.Box 520, Gisborne, New Zealand
