We like our boats at Yachting New Zealand and need someone to make sure a lot of our systems tick along the way they should. 

We're looking for an administrator with a yachting background to support the organisation, particularly around big-boat sailing (keelboats, multihulls and trailer yachts), race officials and volunteer training.

The successful applicant will also work in the front of house, providing a professional and friendly face to everyone who contacts Yachting New Zealand and enquires about sailing and boating in this country.

Based in our Takapuna office, this is an exciting opportunity for a highly-organised administrator who has the ability to multi-task. It is a permanent and fulltime role.

  • the Yachting New Zealand national boat register
  • the national yacht handicapping system (PHRF)
  • the implementation of race official and volunteer training
  • keeping the Yachting New Zealand office humming
