Staff Benefits

At the ManawatÅ« District Council, we are committed to providing a community to be proud of - both in our Council offices as an excellent employer and out and about in the ManawatÅ« by providing great services. 

We believe in providing our staff with a happy and harmonious work environment that helps them achieve their professional goals while maintaining a healthy work/life balance. 

We provide ongoing professional development and study opportunities for our staff because we value and want you to continue to learn and grow.

We have a fun bunch of people here who know that life is not all about work! Our social club organises regular events that you are welcome to be a part of. 

We are very protective of the culture we have developed here at Council, so you know that when you join our team you'll have extra curricular activities such as our Te Roopu Waiata singing group that can ignite your passions.

ManawatÅ« residents can enjoy a charming rural lifestyle at the foot of the Ruahine Ranges. At the heart is Feilding where we are based - a charming rural town, with a close-knit community and an atmosphere that greats you with a warm elegance and a welcoming community. We have won New Zealand's Most Beautiful Town no less than 16 times with free parking and an array of shops and eateries that make it a vibrant hub where you are met with a friendly smile, and welcoming hospitality.
