Building Team Opportunities

At Thames-Coromandel District Council we know that the strength of any community is in its people.

Our experienced team come from rich and varied roles. We work collaboratively with communities and businesses to enhance the Coromandel Peninsula now and into the future.

With different skills, our staff share common goals as an organisation:

  • Our communities recognise and value the natural environment and the natural values of our coast and beaches are respected and enhanced
  • The Coromandel's long and rich history is valued and preserved
  • The diversity and character of our communities and the uniqueness of the Coromandel is a valued part of our lifestyle
  • Our local economies reflect the spirit of the Coromandel
  • The needs of both local and visitor communities are met through sound planning, ahead of growth and development
  • Our communities are healthy, cohesive, caring and supportive
We love the Coromandel. Our people enjoy a fulfilling coastal lifestyle where dedication to work is balanced with other important things in life:  family, voluntary community work, and play.


In the past 10 years, much has changed to make it easier to be connected with the world through upgrades to broadband and telecommunications technology along with improved road access and greater infrastructure. 

Over the next 10 years, TCDC will continue to grow and develop these to further enhance access to and from the Coromandel. 

Yet for residents the beauty of the Coromandel lies in the caring nature of its communities and the inspiring natural beauty that is constantly rejuvenating the soul.

There is an abundance of hidden talent on the Coromandel – people who have come from all over New Zealand and the world - many of whom are well-travelled and successful. They choose to relocate here to continue to achieve professionally but to live the dream of having a well-balanced life that allows time for family, friends and community.

If you are considering what's best for your family and wellbeing, consider the Coromandel's lifestyle.
