This full-time role, based in Dunedin, will have the principal aim of increasing the number of girl’s aged 8 – 18 years playing rugby.  This will be achieved through the promotion and delivery of rugby skill-based programmes to schools, establishing pathways for girls to join local rugby clubs and through competitions and festivals that involve Rugby or modified versions of the game. Another key component of this role will consist of overseeing the continuation of the successful Spirit Sisters Activator programme, developed in partnership with New Zealand Rugby.

  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • A passion for developing opportunities for participation in Women’s rugby
