About Trustpower

Trustpower’s roots stretch back almost 100 years and we’re proud to see how much we've grown and achieved in that time. We’re one of the largest companies on the NZX and with our brand new head office in the sunny Bay of Plenty, you can swim, surf, or stroll along the beach before or after work. Our second largest office is in the Steampunk Capital of New Zealand, also known as #gigatown and famous for its beautiful stone... Oamaru!

Other offices are dotted from the far north to the deep south, with power stations and hydro schemes in the most stunning locations in New Zealand.

Our Offices

Our offices are designed around the concept of Activity Based Working (ABW); a creative way of working which promotes flexibility and enables collaboration. The layout is open plan with lots of cool areas to work in, so there’s no “tied to the desk” attitude in our workplace.

Our Values

The world is facing an uncertain future, and the way Trustpower moves into the future will require adaptability and speed to make sure we are positioned well to continue to succeed. While strategic focuses or business opportunities may change, the thing that is always a constant is driving decisions from our values, calling upon our embedded values to make the changes we need and holding on to our values to come out the other side still us.

Trustpower Staff Benefits

As much as we're a team, we're also individuals - with our own personal priorities, goals and ambitions. At Trustpower, we understand and respect this. We want to support you in every way we can, so we provide a diverse range of benefits that help you balance your own lifestyle and needs with your work commitments.

Fostering Talent

Our 'Apollo' Programme                    Apollo Programme Logo Image

Going where no person has been before!

Our Apollo Programme is all about giving our next generation of employees the opportunity to gain cross-functional insight, identify opportunities for us to improve, and develop our overall leadership and technical capability. It's about developing and supporting change agents who will challenge us and shape our future

Apollo has two streams:

  1. Generalist stream - participants rotate throughout various teams and departments over a two year period.  Generalists can be graduates or non-graduates - they just have to be 100% committed and go-getters! 

  2. Technical stream - this programme gives participants the opportunity to focus on developing their technical skills at the same time as developing a broader understanding of how their department(s) operates. It also includes rotations throughout one or two departments over a two year period. This stream is open to Graduates only. 

All participants are permanent employees and at the end of the programme they can apply for a role anywhere in the business.

Please register your interest for our next intake by creating a profile here. This way you will be notified when we open up applications. 

Our Young Professionals Network

To further support our emerging talent, we also have a Young Professionals network. YoPros offers all of our young professionals the opportunity to get to know each other, learn from internal or external speakers, connect and collaborate at events throughout the year.

Diversity Policy

Trustpower values diversity of views, background and experience. We believe diversity leads to better decision making, innovation and creativity. Diversity also helps build the capability to be successful for shareholders, meet the needs of our customers and aspirations of our staff. Please click here to view our Diversity Policy.

Leading Our Future

The Leading Our Future (LOF) programme is a key platform for creating the organisational capability required to deliver on our vision. All staff are invited to apply for LOF because we believe that everyone has leadership potential and has the ability to influence our success. Check out Alice and Stefan's experience on LOF and where they've seen the benefits personally, professionally and across our organisation.

Leading Our Future is brought to us in partnership with the amazing team at Insight Outsight.

Recruitment Process

We want our recruitment process to be as easy and supportive for you as possible. The image below gives a simple outline of Trustpower's procedure to recruit new employees.

Our pre-employment assessments assist us in selecting and developing high performing staff. They enable us to see whether you would be a great fit with Trustpower and the role you’ve applied for. Assessments can include verbal, numerical and logical reasoning, as well as a personality profile.

Please note: Depending on the role you are applying for, there may be additional steps in this process (an initial phone interview, for example).
