Why Auckland

It’s welcoming and safe

New Zealanders are known for being friendly and welcoming. The traditional Māori spirit of manaakitanga (hospitality and generosity) is just as significant today. As New Zealanders we value human rights, are nuclear-free and politically stable.

We’re an international city

We’re a young city making our mark on the world – and you can too. Innovative companies and startups are stepping onto the global stage, and innovation hubs expanding across the city. Auckland is New Zealand’s economic powerhouse and a global city, with easy access to key international markets, particularly Asia Pacific.

Great job opportunities

Large-scale projects and new companies are springing up in Auckland and our population, economy and key industry sectors are all growing rapidly – which all means more career opportunities for you. We’re big enough to be connected to other global business hubs, but small enough to make connections easily, and career progression here can be much faster than in larger cities.

City style and natural beauty

Auckland combines the energy and excitement of city life with spectacular natural beauty in every direction. World-class food, wine, coffee, designer shopping and a thriving arts and culture scene is matched with beautiful harbours, islands, beaches, forests and volcanic cones offering countless adventure activities, from sailing and surfing to mountain biking and hiking. And it’s all so close. 

You’ll get a balanced lifestyle

Our great lifestyle is one of the main reasons people are drawn to Auckland. We believe in hard work, but we know life outside is important too – whether it’s beach time with family and friends, joining a social sports team or making the most of the superb dining, shopping, entertainment, nightlife and outdoor activities at your fingertips.

We’re family friendly

If you already have children or you’re planning for the future, Auckland is a wonderful place to raise a family. It’s safe, stable and culturally diverse, with excellent public healthcare, a lifestyle where children can enjoy our natural playground and a world-class education system.
