Working with us

Our people work on a range of projects that make a difference to the lives of all New Zealanders and we need a mix of people with diverse skills and experience to get the work done.

Working with us, you have the potential to be involved with a variety of exciting projects that will help shape our transport system, creating great places to live, work and play. We keep New Zealand moving by investing in innovative solutions for urban growth areas, providing regional and inter-regional transport connections to enable regional development, keep access to markets open, maintain key tourist routes, manage national data registers and implement safety regulations.

Our planners and project managers are involved in delivering nationally significant infrastructure projects such as Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi to Warkworth(external link), or the work we are teaming up to do in response to the Kaikōura earthquake(external link)

We deliver a significant amount of work that you may not even know that we are responsible for. Did you know that we have a team that works on road safety advertising campaigns?  They’ve picked up several prestigious national and international awards(external link) for adverts such as ‘Mistakes(external link)’. We also built the distinctive magenta Nelson Street Cycleway(external link) in Auckland and invest in public transport through the National Land Transport Programme.

At the Transport Agency, you could use your skills to improve our customer experiences or work in education or behaviour change programmes. We also have teams who manage our legal risks, Ministerial correspondence and property acquisitions and management.

We’re also growing a digital savvy, innovative culture and we’re involved in projects that sit under the revolutionary Mobility as a Service(external link) programme that offers a single, connected network-wide transport system focused on providing people-centred services.

Road safety 'Mistakes' ad campaign

The 'Choice' real-time transport app


We are customer-oriented, partnering with our rail, road and service providers and construction alliance teams to make sure people are safe and compliant. 

Our transport operation centres work to keep our customers safe and up to date with the latest traffic information across New Zealand in real time. They operate 24/7, every day of the year, keeping an eye on our vast network of roads.

Our exceptional organisational support services also play a critical role across all the work we deliver such as safety and environment, people, corporate services, and stakeholder and communications.

As you can see, we have all sorts of people that help to keep our organisation (and New Zealand) moving.
