Full Time

High Performance Sport New Zealand (HPSNZ) was established in 2011 to lead and deliver on key aspects of the High Performance (HP) Strategy in New Zealand. The HPSNZ vision is ‘Inspiring the nation through more New Zealanders winning on the world stage’.

Coaching is a top priority for HPSNZ. New Zealand has a small talent base of coaches, so it is critical that HPSNZ support for coaches assists them to accelerate their development and performance.

Reporting to the Manager HP Coaching, the primary purpose of the High Performance Coaching Consultant is to enable HP coaches and National Sport Organisations to provide carded athletes with the coaching they need.

The HP Coaching Consultant will be a member of HPSNZ’s HP Coaching Team which comprises, in addition to the Manager, five HP Coaching Consultants and the Manager of the Coach Accelerator Programme. The HP Coaching Team is responsible for delivering HPSNZ’s NZ HP Coaching Plan.

The role will suit candidates experienced in influencing and facilitating behavioural change in people and organisations. These experiences may have been gained directly in high performance sport either as a Coach or High Performance Director or alternatively through working in a leadership, coaching or mentoring capacity with high achievers in a non-sport environment. Regardless, candidates will need to demonstrate a clear understanding of the requirements of high performance coaches and best practice in high performance coaching.

This is an exciting time to be joining HPSNZ. You will be part of a world's best organisation and working alongside a highly professional, committed, passionate team with an absolute focus on ensuring New Zealand's athletes and teams win on the world stage.

If you know what makes a successful High Performance coaching program to create winners on the world stage then this could be the role for you!
