Work at Council

 TCDC Recruitment_2022_1920x1080px.jpg

We're looking for people with ability and passion to create sustainable change in our community.

As one of the largest employers in our district, we offer a diverse range of career opportunities. These including finance, engineering, planning, policy, customer services, administration, and many more.

Why choose Thames-Coromandel?

The Coromandel offers breath-taking scenery, golden beaches, and remarkable rainforests. Our district offers a peaceful, restorative atmosphere with plenty of opportunities for adventure.

Our district is only 90 minutes from the big cities: Auckland, Tauranga, and Hamilton. Close enough for a regular commute, but far enough for a complete change of pace. That sets our district apart.

Leave behind the stress of the city and unlock one of New Zealand's most beautiful areas.
