Sarah Rodger

Area Managerview all people

My first job within the industry was working at the TAB throughout university. I loved it and knew I had found a passion for something I previously knew very little about. I graduated and moved in to my field of study, while also continuing to work at the TAB on the occasional weekend – just for fun!

A few years later, an opportunity became available within the People Team at NZRB. I jumped at the chance to get back in to the industry and became a Capability Advisor. Drawing on my experience as a TAB operator my job was to find, develop, and implement learning and development opportunities for the retail network.

After some time another opportunity within the business came my way. Today I am an Area Manager for the TAB and I am responsible for the implementation and delivery of retail training programs, operations support and selected project execution. I am just one of many who started their NZRB career working part time at the TAB and I think it is a real testament to the nature of the NZRB that there are opportunities available to move throughout the business.

Besides having a passion for racing and sports, the people make the NZRB a fantastic place to work. Whether it be
catching up for coffee with someone from Finance, having lunch with someone from Broadcasting, or discussing an outcome from a sports game with someone from Strategy - every Business Unit is full of people who are willing to help and make you feel welcome.

I feel lucky to be part of an organisation that is so unique and full of people who share the same passion. It’s awesome to know I am contributing to something literally thousands of people across New Zealand care about.
