Work and live ‘your way’ in Wellington

With flexible work hours, friendly colleagues and a focus on finding a good work/life balance, you’ll wake up everyday excited to work in Wellington.

Work your way flexibility at a cafe

We know life’s not all about clocking in and clocking out and Wellington businesses are rapidly changing to fit the modern, flexible workforce.

Working in Wellington doesn’t have to mean spending 40 hours a week behind a desk. Flexible hours, state-of-the-art offices and social work cultures mean going to work becomes less of a chore and more of a fun way to spend your day. Some tailor their work days to leave and pick up their kids from school, while others manage a four-day work week to make the most of a public holiday weekend.

Culinary capital

Wellington is a foodie’s paradise with top quality cafes, restaurants and food markets throughout the region. Whether it’s having your morning meeting over a perfect flat white, popping out of the office for a quick lunch or wining and dining with your family and friends in the evening, Wellington has it all.

We’ll also find any excuse for a morning or afternoon tea featuring all the Kiwi home-baking classics, including welcoming new colleagues, commiserating departures, celebrating newfound parenthood and more.

Commuting's a breeze

The daily commute is made easy with trains, ferries, buses, and electric bikes and scooters connecting you from home to work, with the average Wellington commute being just 25 minutes. Or take advantage of our compact city and walk to work or your next meeting.

And when you need a break away from your screens or the office, nature is right on your doorstep. You can use your lunchbreak for a run along Wellington’s waterfront or use your weekends to catch a train to Kāpiti or Upper Hutt and Lower Hutt and take on one of Wellington’s hundreds of walking or bike trails.
