Careers at New Plymouth District Council

If you don’t believe you can have your cake and eat it too, think again.  Because in New Plymouth it is possible to enjoy the best of both worlds – a huge range of career opportunities and a quality of life that’s second to none. After all, our city wasn’t named New Zealand’s top town and the best city of our size in the world by chance.  Naturally, we’re blessed with an environment that provides just as much on the lifestyle front as it does awe-inspiring vistas.  Economically, we truly punch above our weight. We have one of the country’s highest levels of business confidence and economic growth.  Socially, we think we’ve got the mix just right - a friendly, down-to-earth and welcoming place that’s focused on the future, yet very true to its roots.
