Whanganui District Council Careers

Whether you are ready for a change of career or lifestyle or both, the Whanganui District Council loves welcoming talented and enthusiastic new people to our place.

Our Council is the kaitiaki (guardian) of our district, and our awa (the Whanganui River) is the focal point of our settlement.

We are a place resounding with community spirit and there is an underlying essence that underpins what it means to be from or in Whanganui. We support each other, work in partnership, are resilient and can handle challenges. We keep talking to each other and are pulling in the same direction. We know where we are heading but celebrate and champion diversity. Our roots run deep.
