New Zealand Lacrosse Interim Operations Manager: Seeking Applications

The NZL Board under the newly merged NZ Lacrosse has been in place for nine months. Over this time it has become clear that there is work to do in establishing and maturing a merged NZL operational team to support the day to day running of Lacrosse in New Zealand. As a result of this, the NZL Board is in the process of reviewing the operational structure and leadership position required to do so.

Because it may take some time to confirm the role and the funding to support a General Manager position, the NZL Board have made the decision to appoint an Interim Operations Manager for a maximum period of 6 months (or until a General Manager is appointed).

If you are someone who has had previous experience within the Mens and/or Womens operational committees of NZ Lacrosse in the past, we would encourage you to consider and apply for this position. Due to the interim nature of the role and the requirement for someone to hit the ground running, preference will be given to candidates who have previous operational NZ Lacrosse experience.

Role Overview
The Interim Operations Manager role will oversee and own the day-to-day operations of NZL, as well as (where required) supporting the implementation of some of NZL’s strategic goals and priorities.

This role will involve managing daily operational activities, including management of the operational team and ensuring that the NZL community are well led and supported.
