Yachting New Zealand are looking to make a big difference in both the educational and environmental spheres and need someone to help deliver that. It’s why we’ve created a new full-time role for someone to oversee our new schools’ programme as well as supporting the implementation of our environmental strategy.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and organised educator with experience in planning, project implementation and curriculum development who also has a passion for the water and the environment to join our team at Yachting New Zealand. We’re the national sports organisation for sailing and boating in New Zealand.

We recently reinvented the way we engage with schools and kura throughout Aotearoa New Zealand by developing a schools’ programme called RŪNĀ (follow your star) that uses an integrated, experiential curriculum that helps kiwi kids develop water skills while researching local history (korinorino), harnessing the power of the wind (kōkōkaha) and restoring marine ecosystems (moanamana). It is the first of its kind in this country and the first module (kōkōkaha) was introduced in schools throughout New Zealand in 2021 to overwhelming success. Now we want to take it to the next level.

The successful applicant will support the ongoing implementation of kōkōkaha and help coordinate the sailing experiences delivered by our RŪNA providers and Yachting New Zealand’s roaming trailers. As well as help with the design and implementation of our 2 further modules, korinorino and moanamana, so experience in curriculum design, website engagement and teacher resource development will be valuable in this role.

We also need someone who can help implement our environmental strategy and support our network of clubs and class associations as they become more environmentally savvy. You don’t need to be David Attenborough, but a love of the environment is a necessity, as is good computer and communications skills.
