Why work for us?


He oranga Whenua, He oranga Tangata, He oranga Wairua. Tihei Mauriora! If our land is cared for, if our people are looked after, if the spirit is strong, we can build a better future for all!

At Rangitikei District Council, we believe in bringing together thoughts, perspectives, and expression from all kinds of backgrounds. Our team strive to create a space and culture where you feel like you belong. We also believe in a balance between work and play that allows you to enjoy life.


We want to work as a team to deliver the best outcomes for our district. We are building our organisational culture around the principles of delivering for our customers, our organisational values, working together, and focusing on outcomes rather than tasks. That means we will:- provide strong customer service to all our customers- operate collaboratively as a total Council team, and- deliver our services in a way that is best for the district (as opposed to best for the Council). In short, we want to work as a team to provide great services to the residents of our district.


Our values and culture come to life in our people - culture being the way we behave, communicate and interact with each other and our community. Being part of a team is important to us. Because we are a small organisation we can do things a little differently and we celebrate that. Each area has its own unique personality, while working within a framework of shared business goals and values. Our values are critical to our decision-making and interactions with each other.
