Welcome to Southland District Council

When the Southland District Council was formed, a lot of thought went into identifying one founding principle - a key message to underpin our culture and drive everything we do.

In the end, it came down to two words: People first.

Today, that ethos remains at the heart of all we do and it begins right at the coal face: our workplace. We value your interest in joining us at the Southland District Council. To stay true to our "People first" philosophy, and provide our District the best in services and support, it has to start with putting a premium on recruiting, and retaining, fantastic staff.

Our 150-strong team is our greatest asset. And we don't just say that; we show it through competitive remuneration packages, full support in training and development and state-of-the-art technology - all provided in a dynamic environment that fosters personal and professional growth.

I look forward to working with you.
