About our partnership

Find out more about our partnership with the Athletics New Zealand, Performance Potential Squad. 

At Robert Walters we're raising the bar

The Performance Potential Squad (PPS) is a high-performance athlete development programme at Athletics New Zealand (NZ). The PPS prepares and equips athletes to maximise their potential and sustain future success in their athletic careers. 

The skills and attributes required by athletes to succeed vary widely, and just like Robert Walters does for our candidates, they identify these unique skills to drive ongoing career development. Careers aren’t linear, and it’s our job to help you identify what your transferable skills are and where your next career move could be.

Robert Walters and Athletics NZ aren’t about just participating, we work with purpose. We are about identifying unique potential, collaboration and success.
