Glenn Eyers


Kia ora, my name is Glenn and I was on the Sport NZ Graduate Programme from 2015-2016. My time on the Graduate Programme gave me a thorough and unique understanding of the New Zealand sport system.

In my first year I was based at the Sport NZ office in Wellington and was fortunate enough to work on projects such as the development of the cutting edge talent plan that is now being implemented. In my second year I was placed at Sport Bay of Plenty and Cycling New Zealand. During this time, I had the opportunity to work on a range of projects such as school sport reviews, youth engagement, major sporting events and was able to gain experience and observe two completely different organisations.

I am currently playing semi-professional hockey in England and learning about international sport systems, however I plan on coming back to New Zealand in the near future to further progress my sport management career.
