We’re a city - and a council - that’s all about quality over quantity. We’re here to help you develop your career, with a wide range of pathways available, always with an emphasis on equal employment opportunities). We actively encourage both formal and informal training opportunities and encourage you to create your best life in Whangārei, at work and at home.

We pride ourselves on high standards and best practice with a work environment that is highly professional and respectful, amongst colleagues who you’ll find to be genuinely friendly and down-to-earth.  We’re about working smarter not harder. Just quietly, we’ve nailed the often-elusive work- life balance (overtime heroes need not apply).
