Opportunities in Auckland’s commercial economy range from IT, science, engineering, and business consulting and outsourcing through to managing commercial spaces and hotels.

Why invest in Auckland’s commercial services sector

Operation costs are 25 per cent cheaper

According to New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, it’s 25 per cent cheaper to operate a 200-seat contact centre in New Zealand than it is in Australia or Great Britain.

Competitive salary costs

At NZ$42,000, our average salary for customer service representatives in a contact centre is 10 to 15 per cent lower than those in major Australian cities.*
