Why work for us?
Trustpower was formed in 1994 following the introduction of the Energy Companies Act 1992, but our roots stretch back over 100 years to the formation of Tauranga’s municipal electricity department in 1914. We’ve grown a lot since then, to become one of the biggest companies on the NZX, providing 8% of New Zealand’s hydro generation capacity from our 25 hydro-electric power schemes, and building our own retail and wholesale telecommunications network.
So that’s our story so far, but it’s not where it ends… Are you ready to join us on the journey?
Based in the sunny Bay of Plenty, where you can wake up for a swim, surf, or run on the beach before work, why would you want to be anywhere else? But fear not if the bay is not your thing, our second biggest office is in the gorgeous ‘whitestone city’ and New Zealand’s steampunk capital, Oamaru!
Add to that our generation sites and support offices in some of Aotearoa’s most picturesque locations from Northland to Otago, we’re certain we’ve got a place for you to fit right in.
Our Tauranga HQ is based around the concept of Activity Based Working (ABW), so you won’t be tied to a desk at Trustpower! ABW encourages flexibility and collaboration, which means you can pick the space that works best for you in our open plan, purpose-built office.
Trustpower has had operations based in Oamaru since our purchase of the Call South business in 2007, and our long-term commitment as an employer in the North Otago region has been confirmed with our brand new office that is under construction, due to open in mid-2021! The new office is being purpose-built for Trustpower, and will include ABW-style spaces that will give our Oamaru team the opportunity to experience the full benefits of this flexible style of working.
