Working in Rugby

We have a strong focus on creating a workplace culture which promotes flexibility and ensures the wellbeing of our people, with a number of us working outside of our main offices, as well as a variety of flexible working arrangements to better suit people’s individual family needs.

As well as the 149-strong corporate team, we have many experienced team members in many specialist areas – including coaches, managers, trainers, referees and players.

NZR is proud to be Rainbow Tick Certified.

The Rugby Way | Te Ara Ranga Tira


The Rugby Way is a collection of shared behaviours and values for everyone in our game that unite us together in a common purpose.


Rugby is more than just a game, it builds communities and fosters a lifelong love of the sport. We love what we do – participating because it’s fun and we connect with others. We act for the good of the game, respecting its heritage, history and heroes and we're team players, connecting with people and the community for the greater good.

Be Passionate


We strive for excellence on and off the field, driven by a belief that rugby can improve people’s lives. We are committed to improvement, whether that be in the search for winning games and competitions or by simply participating. We aim to create more rounded people by investing in their development and we take our opportunities to positively influence and support the community.

Be Our Best


Rugby is a game for all, regardless of our backgrounds, beliefs, or identity. We are open to all communities that want to be involved in our sport. We create meaningful pathways for all people to be involved in rugby whether that be in playing, coaching, management, refereeing or administration; and we promote an inclusive culture in every rugby club, field and office that welcomes all ages, genders, ethnicities, sexualities, religions or physical abilities.

Be Welcoming


We do what we say we’ll do and act with honesty and integrity at all times. We play with respect on the field. We respect the officials, our opponents and teammates and their safety. We behave with integrity off the field, taking responsibility for our own behaviour and are part of a culture where we look after our mates and step in – we are what we walk past. We front when we get something wrong. We own the action and the consequence, but we also believe in the power of the game to restore people and improve them.
