Facilitation Opportunities

Kia ora and welcome!

We are very excited that you are interested in learning more about becoming a facilitator of a local business networking group. 

Are you a member of a business or a business owner who has a genuine love of people, networking, and the desire to make a positive impact in your local community?

The Networkers® NZ is always looking for caring, people-focused Facilitators to run weekly networking groups. This is a great opportunity to step-up and develop your own leadership skills, while supporting an inspiring group to bring out the best in them and their businesses.

About Us

The Networkers® NZ is a heart-based social enterprise that is guided by our core values. These are:

  • We do what we say
  • We create opportunities for everyone
  • We give you a voice
  • We are fun to be with

Our primary focus is establishing local business networking groups that are facilitated by local people, to cater to the needs of their local business community.

Our weekly meetings run for an hour over coffee and are supportive and collaborative environments, full of collaboratively minded people across all walks of business life. We aim to connect people and encourage them to work together to celebrate each other’s successes, assist with challenges, exchange business and be supported in professional development.


About Facilitating

Our Facilitators are responsible for working alongside their regional Franchise Partner [LINK] for the continued development, success, and growth of their group. As a Facilitator you prepare and run the interactive one-hour weekly meetings, set the tone of your group, bring out the best in each member, and support your group members as their needs change.  

You’ll be well supported by our team, with the meeting structure and presentation provided. There’s no complicated admin and you’ll have access to a great community of other Facilitators to kо̄rero with.

The role requires a time commitment of approximately 1.75 – 2 hours a week. This includes the one-hour meeting, plus time either side to set up and pack down (10-15 minutes), and about 10-15 minutes during the week to prepare for the next meeting.

We provide full admin support, training and weekly support at your meetings during the first weeks as you step into this role, then attend infrequently or as needed (approx. every 4-6 weeks). Our reward for your time and efforts is free membership to the group (includes online profile) and you receive 30% of income from member invoices.

So, our question to you is, are you…

  • Passionate about networking, and resonate with our core values
  • Inspired by the success of others, with a desire to help bring out the best in people
  • Comfortable bringing people into a group environment in a way that makes them feel welcome and supported
  • Organised and committed – you’ll be the ‘glue’ that holds your group together
  • Ready to develop and grow alongside your group
  • Able to follow our processes and communicate clearly with our admin team
  • Have clear communication and good listening skills
  • Professional in your manner and a team player
  • Wanting to be contribute to your local business community
  • Collaborative and constantly seeking opportunities to build and strengthen connections
  • Willing to learn, train, and adapt – you don’t necessarily need to be a confident speaker right now; we are looking for someone who is prepared to step up and become confident over time
  • Is positive, receptive, forward thinking, adaptable, and enthusiastic
