Atlas Professionals New Zealand seeks charity nominations for Points for Charity programme

Atlas Professionals New Zealand, in partnership with the Taranaki Rugby Football Union, will fundraise by a so-called Points for Charity system in the upcoming Mitre10 Cup Rugby season. For every point scored by the Yarrows Taranaki Bulls in a home game, the company will donate $50 to a Taranaki charity nominated by the Bulls’ supporters. 

Strong community ties

Atlas Professionals is a global recruitment and HR services provider for Energy, Marine and Renewables. In Australia and New Zealand, Atlas Professionals support clients within the offshore oil and gas sector with the full cycle of recruitment, manning and support services, with approximately 1500 staff across the region. Its office in New Plymouth has strong ties with the local community. Formerly known as Programmed Marine, the company has been a major sponsor of the Taranaki Bulls for several years. 

Dave Bishop, General Manager New Zealand, says: “Atlas Professionals New Zealand has a long standing relationship with the TRFU. Giving back to the community in which we, our employees and their families live and work is vitally important to us, and despite the recent news regarding the challenges ahead with Yarrow Stadium, Atlas Professionals remains committed to Taranaki Rugby and our community. This year we are delighted to launch our “Points for Charity” programme during the upcoming Rugby season, and look forward to once again giving a little back to our community.”

Points for Charity

On this page, the public is able to nominate and vote for Taranaki community-based charities.

Geoff Hitchcock, Commercial Manager Taranaki Rugby, says “We are excited to be a part of this new initiative with Atlas Professionals and it is great that they are giving back to the community.
