Ko wai mātou | About us
At Waka Kotahi, the NZ Transport Agency, it all starts with our people. The organisation's performance and success depends on the people who choose to make this a great place to work and make a difference for Aotearoa. The Transport Agency has a strong future focus, understanding that new technologies and changing customer expectations mean the transport system we know today will not be the one we deliver in ten years time.
The Safety, Health and Environment Group provides our organisation with strategic direction and leadership on creating a safe and sustainable transport system and on ensuring workplace and contractor health and safety. The group's purpose is leading, designing and enabling change to prevent harm to people and the planet towards a low carbon, safe and healthy Aotearoa.
As well as stimulating work, we offer a range of benefits including ongoing professional development, the opportunity to work flexibly (within our operational requirements), 4 weeks annual leave, subsidised health insurance, and an active social club.
