For the curious, for the driven, every day brings new opportunities when you are part of our team at Taupō District Council. Our diverse organisation is recognised for its vibrant energy, optimism for the future, ambition to act boldly and willingness to do things differently to secure the best result. From large-scale infrastructure to co-governance initiatives or customer experience to employee engagement, we take a balanced and community-focused approach that allows us to strive with consideration on behalf of our district. We are motivated by and dedicated to the part we play in ensuring the most livable and prosperous district in Aotearoa and hold this greater purpose in mind in all that we do.  


Our people have worked across diverse sectors, locations and in challenging environments.
