Secondary Schools Sports Advisor – Sport Manawatu – Manawatu

What’s it like to work at Sport Manawatu?
At Sport Manawatu we live and breathe sport every day.  It’s what drives us to get out of bed every morning and head to work. Sport is our passion. That means we don’t always work 8-5, sport happens at night and on the weekends as well. It means we work with kids, adults, volunteers and even athletes competing on the world stage. It also means that from 3pm on a Friday we head out and do what we love: sport.

At times we face challenges on our journey but it’s overcoming those challenges that make the successes so great. At the end of the day we are privileged to be able to help make it easier for people in our region to play, recreate and compete in sport. From kids, club participants and volunteers through to our elite athletes; we are proud to support them all.

At Sport Manawatu we value integrity, excellence, leadership, and our people.
