We want our people to know they’re valued and have the resources, flexibility and support they need to thrive and succeed. Read about our range of benefits and get a feel for our culture and way of working.
Flexibility and work/life balance
Five weeks annual leave and flexi leave
We offer five weeks paid annual leave each year. But that’s not all. We allow employees to buy up to an extra three weeks of flexi leave in a calendar year. The cost of each additional week’s leave is 2% of your total remuneration.
Working from home equipment subsidy
We’ll contribute up to $800 for equipment to help you set up a safe and functional home office. This benefit is available to permanent employees and fixed term employees with an employment agreement of 12 months or more.

- reimbursement of up to $500 each financial year to spend on your wellness
- in-house wellness seminars and morning teas

- confidential counselling for you and your immediate family members through the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
- individual workstation assessments
Generous parental leave
Expecting mums and dads are provided five days of paid leave (at the time of birth or adoption), and a one-off additional five days of wellness leave upon return. We offer an ex-gratia payment of 11 weeks remuneration for eligible employees who return from a period of at least three months approved parental leave.
We contribute an employer subsidy to KiwiSaver for eligible employees, matching and exceeding legislative requirements as follows:
- 3% employee contribution = 3% employer contribution

Grow. Connect. Learn.
It’s about unlocking our full potential
We offer a range of learning and development opportunities to grow, connect, learn and experience. On our orientation programme, you’ll learn about what we do and connect with our leaders and others across the business right from the start.
We have courses, coaching and an in-house mentoring programme to develop your interpersonal, professional and leadership skills, with an average of 20 hours’ training for everyone each year.
We host in-house seminars and local and international events with leaders in their field to help you build your knowledge and your networks.
We run in-house te Reo and Tikanga training. Building cultural and language awareness of Te Ao Māori is important to us and achieving our goals.
And if you want to broaden your professional expertise, networks and life experiences even more, we sometimes have rewarding secondment opportunities to other central banks, government departments or private sector organisations.
We’re friendly and social. We work together and celebrate our achievements, having fun at every opportunity.
Whether you’re into sports, fitness, lunchtime walking, gardening, coffee or singing, you’ll find something to suit.
Other facilities and amenitiesIn our Wellington office, you can have your dry cleaning organised, access in-house showers, changing rooms and a dedicated parents’ room, or have some downtime in our wellness room.
Relaxed dress codeWe want you to be comfortable at work. We encourage a tidy-casual dress code, with a step up to business attire when you go to external meetings or events with stakeholders.
CBD locationsWe have offices in CBD locations in both Auckland and Wellington and in many cases are happy to discuss working from either location with you. Both of our Wellington and Auckland offices are based in the central business district, conveniently located close to public transport and all handy amenities.
Car and bicycle parkingIf you are based in our Wellington office, you have the option of buying an affordable car park as part of your remuneration package. You’ll be allocated a parking space just for you, that you can use 24/7.
We also have two casual parking spots in Wellington available for occasional use, for business or personal needs.
In Auckland, there are several public car parking facilities near the Auckland office.
