Searching for a Board Observer - Rotorua Regional Airport

Board Observer - Rotorua Regional Airport Ltd. Self-development and exposure to the role of a CCO board.

Rotorua Airport Limited is searching for a candidate to sit as an observer on its Board of Directors.  

This opportunity will provide an individual with first-hand exposure to the role of a board, its decision making and operations as well as training and mentorship designed to provide this observer with important skills that they can carry through to their own business.  

Observers will learn about: 

  • the issues confronting the organisation 
  • the fundamental principles of the work and function of boards 
  • the roles and responsibilities of board members 
  • financial processes
  • other governance priorities.

“Being a board observer for the Rotorua Airport was lots of fun.  The insight into tourism industry impacts during COVID-19 was a perspective I never expected to gain but provided real-time thinking and strategizing in parallel with what-if scenario placement.

The contrast of governance experience with day-to-day operational activities was invaluable.”

‘’Having the opportunity to be a Board Observer and learn from a governance level was good experience for myself. I have had no prior board experience and being in business for just one year, I was able to contribute my knowledge and also learn from all those who sat at the board table to assist with my own company . If anyone is thinking of applying to be the next Board Observer I say YES give it ago’’

For 12 months from appointment the board observer will participate in all aspects of RAL board work without voting rights. 

The preferred candidate would have no prior board experience and own a business within the Rotorua area. The role will suit someone who can contribute knowledge, experience and/or ideas to assist the Company in achieving its key priorities

To register your interest for the position, please submit your resume and a 300-500 word cover letter/brief essay explaining the key challenges facing your business, the skills and attributes you would bring to the board and why you would like the position, what you would hope to achieve and how it fits with your future aspirations.  

Expressions of interest close 5.00pm Friday, 6th November 2020 and can be submitted to Mark Gibb, Chief Executive Rotorua Airport, mark@rotorua-airport.co.nz
