Life at Toitū Te Whenua

Strong foundations enable smart decisions.

Our supportive working environment is built on our manaaki tangata values, meaning we encourage everyone to bring their whole self to work and enjoy a healthy work-life balance. Enjoy working from home? Looking for flexible hours? Let’s chat.

We’re stronger together. Our people are friendly and supportive, and we encourage collaboration among experts across the business to achieve better outcomes. Teamwork is the key to our success, and our supportive environment is what drives it.  

Hear from our people

From the time we open our week with our karakia, to Friday when we gather for waiata, our people work well together and enjoy each other’s company.
