Your Council

Diverse roles

How does working for one of the most diverse organisations in the city sound? You can specialise in your dream job while gaining experience in other aspects of local government.

Working at Council is all about making Palmerston North a vibrant, caring, innovative, sustainable and prosperous city. Not only are we responsible for the maintenance, infrastructure and management of the city, we are also responsible for the future planning and wellbeing of our city and community.

There’s an incredible diversity of roles here at Council. Whether you’ve just left school, graduated from university, or are looking for that fresh start in an exciting new environment, we’re positive we can provide you with a stimulating and challenging career with many opportunities.

Practical hands on roles like our gardeners, refuse and recycling operators, civil works staff and carpenters are as essential as our behind the scenes workers like our engineers, accountants, planners and advisors. Our community facing roles such as librarians and customer service representatives play an integral part in realising the vision for our city.
