Work for Waikato District Council

Our communities are at the heart of all we do. From enabling new business to grow, connecting whanau or just bringing friends together, we have a genuine desire to create lasting memories and a place where everyone wants to be.

Working with us

At Waikato District Council you will find a welcoming and inclusive workplace that supports, challenges and encourages you to stay continually ahead of the game.

What we do has the ability to transform and grow the Waikato as well as your career.

We offer great work/life balance where staff can enjoy surfing the left-hand break in Raglan or a run up the Hakarimata Summit during lunch or after work.

Our head office is based in Ngaruawahia, just 10 minutes North of Hamilton, so with no traffic or parking issues, your journey to and from work is stress free.
