Work for Waikato District Council

Have you heard? We're doing things differently at Waikato District Council. We're overhauling our operations, breaking down hierarchy, smashing silos and improving community planning. We're cultivating an innovative learning culture and pushing co-design when it comes to our community.

To make this change successful we need great people. Are you one of them?

Our head office is based in north Waikato's Ngaruawahia, just 10 minutes from Hamilton. You've got the benefits of an easy commute, free parking, work-life balance and the chance to hit the Hakarimatas on your lunch break. What more could you want?
