Careers

We offer an exciting and challenging range of career opportunities.

Our data and expertise underpins New Zealand’s economy and the wellbeing of our communities. It enables government, businesses and communities to make a whole range of decisions that make a powerful difference to people’s lives.

We’re specialists in geographic information – the data that tells people where things are in the world, on land or under the sea. Our property survey and title system, on which all New Zealand land ownership and development is based, is world leading. We’re also experts at managing land and property for New Zealand.

Our challenge is to get more people using more of our data when making vital decisions about New Zealand’s future– whether that’s rebuilding a city, planning for sea level rise or managing our iconic high country.
