We're looking for people who share our passion for Wellington and have the same values that we do – to make our city an even better place to live and work.

One of the best things about working at the Council is the people. We’re passionate and committed and we care about our city and community. We’re proud of our mahi and every day we see how the work we do helps make Pōneke a better place to live, work and play – from our libraries, to our parks and gardens to our pools and streets.

Our people love that they’re making an impact – we help keep our city safe and we are kaitiaki for our people, our places and our environment, protecting them for future generations.

Our people feel cared for – they know their health, safety and wellbeing are supported and we take that committment seriously.

Like our city, our mahi is diverse and exciting. Our people feel encouraged to learn, grow and develop. And we’re on that journey too – we’re always improving and looking at how we can be more creative, diverse and inclusive, so we all feel like we belong here.

We are building a diverse and inclusive workplace that positively impacts kaimahi (employee) wellbeing.

We want the Council to be somewhere you can be yourself and feel comfortable bringing all the different aspects of who you are to work.
