Working at Sport NZ
The essential Sport NZ
We are born to move. Just as movement is the basis of who we are as people, movement is also implicit to the way we think and work at Sport New Zealand.
Sport NZ is committed to promoting activity to all New Zealanders. We aim to approach every project and every challenge with agility, moving to embrace the best strategies and the best teams. And we prize moving forward as an organisation.
What makes Sport NZ such a great place to work?
We believe in ‘walking the talk’ in everything that we do, and as the lead agency in the sport and recreation sector we strive for excellence in the quality and delivery of our work. Our vision is pivotal to how we operate.
There are a whole lot of benefits from working at Sport NZ including knowing that you are making a difference in improving the quality of life for thousands of New Zealanders.
Some of these benefits include:
- our Push Play programme. Staff are encouraged to Push Play 30 minutes a day through sport and recreation. We have a number of sports teams running within our organisation and everyone is welcome to get involved.
- a flexible working environment. Visits from family or friends are welcome. We have a Parents Room available for mothers, bike stands for staff biking to work, and showers for those wishing to Push Play before work and/or during lunch hours.
- access to health care. We offer a Southern Cross healthcare discount membership scheme, assistance with eye examinations, annual influenza inoculations, and our Employee Assistance Programme.
- our belief in staff development. We offer professional development opportunities such as internal and external courses to support you in your new role and develop your capabilities for the future.
