Seeking new CEO after Sullivan's Departure

NT Rugby are on the hunt for a new CEO after the confirmation of the departure of Shane Sullivan in November.

Sullivan has been in the role since November 2020 and confirms it was a tough decision to move on.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the NT and with NT Rugby. I have been welcomed with open arms and it will be sad to leave. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, Board, Associations, Clubs, volunteers and individuals that have all made my role easier with your support.

Also a big thank you to the NT Government, Major Events and NT Rugby's partners as I have loved our partnerships and the support provided to rugby union. I am excited by the opportunities the rugby community in the NT will have leading into the 2027 and 2029 Rugby World Cups in Australia and will be watching from afar the strengthening of the game under NT Rugby and Rugby Australia."

Applications are now open for the Chief Executive Officer role via Sportspeople and Seek.

  • Lead and grow a strong team in a State Sporting Organisation
  • Hands-on strategic leadership and stakeholder management role
  • Great lifestyle and environment in the NT
