The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Rugby League Club is an iconic brand within Australian sport. Since 1935, Canterbury-Bankstown has provided many of the greatest moments that the game of Rugby League has seen. The Club actively engages with its community, harnessing the Game's popularity to deliver programs that make a difference in people's lives across Australia.

The Bulldogs compete in the NRL, and in a new joint venture with Mounties Group will field teams in the NSW Cup, Ron Massey Cup, Canterbury Cup and Harvey Norman Women's Premiership. The Club also manages the successful Canterbury-Bankstown District Junior Rugby League.

There is an immediate need for an experienced Chief Executive Officer to take the helm of the Bulldogs Rugby League Club. This person will ensure the Bulldogs will be seen as the benchmark for success in the rugby league world both on and off the field in the years ahead.

Success in this role will be the ability to significantly grow the consumer, corporate and membership base whilst also working closely with the Football program to deliver sustainable long term team performance.

This individual will be a proven senior executive with exceptional leadership capabilities. He/she will need to be both commercially and financially savvy and able to analyze metrics and manage budgets.

The successful candidate will be a dynamic individual with political maturity and will be able to manage a diverse range of stakeholders. Extensive experience with the media will be crucial as the CEO will be the face and voice of the Bulldogs.

A good working knowledge of professional sport and/or rugby league will be advantageous.

Given the profile of the Bulldogs and the scale of its operations, this role is clearly one of the most highly prized sport-business positions in Australia.

We’d like to hear from you if you believe you have what it takes to lead this iconic sport business. All enquiries will be dealt with in strict confidence.

The Bulldogs CEO search and recruitment process is being managed exclusively by Sportspeople Recruitment - a specialist division of People Recruitment Group.
