Working in Hamilton

Hamilton is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing cities. It has an urban and semi-urban population of about 180,000, plenty of schools – public and private, a temperate climate and distinctive rural character. The city sits on the banks of the Waikato River, linked by a series of bridges.

The city is generally safe, quiet and without major traffic jams. House prices are more affordable than many of New Zealand’s major centres (such as Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch). Hamilton has its own domestic airport and is 90 minutes away from the country’s main international airport in Auckland. Hamilton’s central location – in the middle of the North Island – makes it an ideal springboard for beaches, lakes and mountains. It’s less than two hours’ drive to the popular tourist destinations of Rotorua, Taupō and the Coromandel Peninsula.
