At Contact Energy, we are always on the hunt for talented individuals to join our Generation & Development team – could we be your next employer?

We have 10 power stations generating electricity using hydro, geothermal and thermal energy across both the north and south islands, situated in some of the most beautiful towns New Zealand has to offer.

Imagine yourself working in stunning Central Otago where we have two large hydro dams on the Clutha River and where the Clyde and Roxburgh Power Stations have become iconic features of New Zealand’s sustainable use of renewable resources. Or how about joining the team in Wairakei (Taupo), a wonderful township known better as ‘nature’s ultimate playground’ famous for its geothermal activity and many other beautiful natural wonders. What’s more, the Wairakei Power Station was the first of its kind anywhere in the world and is proudly known as a leader in geothermal energy. We also have smaller power stations in Stratford (New Plymouth), Te Rapa (Hamilton) and Whirinaki (Napier), these towns too all have their own special uniqueness and tight knit communities.
