Netball South have begun re-advertising their chief executive's position and hope to have someone in place before Christmas.

Southern Steel boss David Bannister was offered the top job for the new Netball South entity - which is a merger of Netball Southland and Netball Otago - but turned it down to move back to Australia to be closer with his family.

The CEO role is being advertised on employment website, Seek, with applications closing on December 9.

Netball South chairman Paul Buckner said they had been approached by several interested parties and was optimistic an appointment could be made before Christmas. They will begin interviewing candidates on December 14.

''Initially we thought, not to rush it and to deal with it in the new year, but that would cause complications with getting close to the start of the season,'' he said.

''We want to embed someone as soon as possible.''
