Vacancies: AFF Board Members

Auckland Football Federation is seeking applications from two suitably qualified and interested parties to join the Board as an Appointed Board Member.

AFF is one of the seven regional Federations of New Zealand Football (NZF), organising and promoting the coaching, refereeing and playing of amateur football in the southern half of the Auckland Region.

Our vision is to lead, inspire and develop the game in Auckland, working to the nationally-aligned strategic direction and programmes from NZF, with nuances and emphases that reflect Auckland’s specific needs.

With over 20,000 players out of 31 clubs AFF has the largest Federation playing base, in the smallest geographic area, bringing both opportunities and challenges unique to our area.

The game has grown rapidly in the last 10 years especially in junior and youth grades, with 75% of players being aged 5-17, and football is now the largest youth sport in New Zealand. With 14 staff operating out of Mt Smart Stadium, and a turnover approaching $2 million, AFF is a substantial Regional Sports Organisation in one of New Zealand’s leading and now mainstream sports.

Candidates should ideally have an understanding of the role of governance in the not-for-profit sector, and have general management or specific management skills in finance, marketing, operations, compliance, legal or sport.

The commitment is for at least one meeting per month including the AGM.

The Board are all volunteers.

Interviews will take place in late February.
