Major Events Manager

Fixed Term role to May 2026 (or one month post New Zealand Open 2026, whichever date comes later)

Badminton New Zealand has secured hosting rights for several international badminton events over the next four years. As a result, we are looking for an experienced event professional to join our team to lead the delivery of these key events. You do not need to be a badminton expert for this role, but your ability in organising large multi-participant events will be crucial to achieving success.

While an Auckland location is preferred, as this is where all six events will take place, the role could be based elsewhere in New Zealand.

Key aspects of the rule include:

  • Leading all six Major Events for Badminton New Zealand from 2023 to 2026.
  • Delivering the events successfully, within budget, and minimising any financial risk to Badminton New Zealand.
  • Partnering with external stakeholders, such as sponsors and other funders, to ensure their desired outcomes for the events are achieved.
  • Coordinating event support from the Badminton New Zealand team, volunteers and the wider badminton community.

In addition to the above, there will also be opportunities for the Major Events Manager to support the Badminton New Zealand team at our own domestic events. This will enable the Major Events Manager to “learn” badminton and to foster relationships within the badminton community.
