The small print

See the terms and conditions for advertising a director vacancy.

All New Zealand registered companies are required under the Companies Act 1993 to have at least one director who either lives in New Zealand, or lives in Australia and is a director of an Australian company.

The Institute of Directors provides board appointment services like director search, director vacancies, and board appointment support for bona fide director appointments. We do not provide these services for director appointments in name only or in a company before it is registered in New Zealand, for example to satisfy the director residence requirement.

We had 36 responses, most of whom were highly qualified. This made shortlisting difficult but we interviewed six applicants and chose two, although any of the six would have been acceptable.
