Canoe Racing New Zealand (CRNZ) is the National Sport Organisation (NSO) responsible for flatwater (sprint and marathon) and ocean (surfski) kayaking in New Zealand.

Reporting to the Board of Directors via the Chair, the CEO will lead CRNZ towards its strategic objectives through leadership and contribution to CRNZ activities, inspiring the support of all CRNZ’s community including affiliated Clubs, staff, athletes, volunteers, stakeholders, and investors.

Due to the small size of CRNZ (10 staff), the CEO role requires a balance of leadership and direction with know-how and a willingness to support business operations. This includes understanding high performance (including what it takes to achieve objectives at Olympic Games) and community/recreational sport.

The CEO’s key responsibilities are:

Be the chief advocate for the sport, the organisation, and our people, growing awareness of paddling and the profile CRNZ
Lead a high-performing team and maintain a culture of excellence, inclusivity, and care
Problem-solve and lead the organisation through challenges that arise, and
Maintain the current funding streams while seeking to develop new opportunities.

To be considered for this role you will preferably be tertiary qualified with significant diversified experience in strategic leadership roles, ideally from within a sports environment. You will be a dynamic leader with a proven track record in managing and growing like-sized businesses, budgets and resources, with proven strength and experience across the core functional responsibilities of leadership, governance, relationship / stakeholder management, financial accountability and commercial management.

Your commercial and financial acumen will successfully deliver against strategic objectives whilst building strong networks and relationships across a wide range of stakeholders.

A background in paddling is not required; however you must be committed to providing strong foundations for the growth and success of the sport both at the elite and community/recreational levels.
