We at Bowls New Zealand have the vision to be the best bowling country, something which all of our participants, athletes, coaches, staff, funders, sponsors and supporters are helping us to achieve.  Our CEO has lead this organisation since its inception in 1996, and is retiring in June this year having helped the sport achieve some significant goals over the years.

Lawn bowls has a strong value proposition as a game for all-“ attracting participants from school age to those in their “˜golden” years.  Whether people take up the sport for fun, friendship or fierce competition, it has the ability to attract and retain participants throughout their active years in every community in New Zealand.  Whilst we have a long and proud history as a traditional sport, we’ve been reinventing ourselves for the modern leisure market and have achieved significant growth in social participants.

We’™re looking for a unique individual who can take the sport and our organisation through the next phase of its development.  We are financially sound with good reserves, have a refreshed strategic plan and a supportive Board who empower the CEO to implement the strategy and lead the organisation.

You will be a resilient, experienced senior executive who has lead teams through challenging times. You will have strong relationship-building skills, with the ability to connect with a wide range of stakeholders.  In return, we offer a competitive remuneration package including a motor vehicle.
