Living and working in Palmerston North

Move to Palmerston North and soak up the easy-going city lifestyle in the beautiful surroundings of the Manawatū.

Palmerston North is just so liveable. We have all the essentials for a vibrant city life – a multicultural, family-friendly and creative community, excellent public facilities and transport, affordable housing, short commutes, diverse job opportunities and natural beauty.

There is a wide range of employment sectors, and with a population base of 86,300 residents, the city is small enough to be efficient, and big enough for a wide range of businesses to find their niche.
