Like to make things happen?  Don't like being a small cog in a big wheel?  Are you just an all-round awesome person?  Perfect, you'll fit right in!

Kaikōura District Council covers a diverse district where great things happen.  Unlike larger councils we don't have a huge team, so when you work for us you won't be placed in a specialist niche were every day is more or less the same. 

Our District is evolving and growing.  With varied development projects and challenges we require a more flexible approach to working.  We build teams that make the most of our employee's talents and play to our collective strengths to get the job done.  And we try to have fun on the way.

We also offer a place to work in a spectacular location nestled between the mountains and the sea.  Leave behind the hassles of a big city and enjoy the outdoors on your doorstep with fabulous scenery, fishing, diving, cycling, walking and beaches.
