Air New Zealand is a global organisation with a very Kiwi heart.
Our people have told us, regardless of their role or location, Air New Zealand is a good place to be. The fact that things are always changing, adds to our strengths and capabilities. It creates career opportunities and enables our people to develop their skills and move into new areas. We are leaders in innovation on a world platform and we frequently create new positions, not only ahead of industry trends, we set them.
We offer careers across a wide range of locations, from New Zealand to Asia, Europe and North America. Wherever in the world you take your career, Air New Zealand will always feel like home.
We asked some of our employees what it's like to work here and below are extracts of what they said:
To communicate the way we see the world and the principles that guide us, we look to our famous Koru.
Air New Zealand's iconic Koru has many attributes. The new fern frond is called a Koru and Maori admired many of its attributes.
The Koru is beautiful and tenacious. Even in the most adverse situations it is able to regenerate and re-grow.
The overall form of the Air New Zealand Koru is a pattern known as "Mangopare". This shape represents the Hammerhead Shark.
Mangopare is revered for its grace, strength and determination; it is a social creature and when faced with a challenge, it never quits.
Mangopare shows our strength and determination and gives us confidence to keep moving forward, whatever the challenge.
So our Koru reflects and inspires who we are as Air New Zealanders. It links us to our beautiful country and gives us a sense of place. It reminds us of our responsibility to nurture and maintain our precious resources for future generations.
These powerful elements proudly come together in our Koru and encourage us to act with humility, dignity and authenticity.
We have a proverb in New Zealand ,"Okea Ururoatia" - Fight like a shark, be tenacious in your pursuit of your goals - never give up.
Welcome as a friend
Is about being approachable, friendly and engaging. Treat customers personally, as individuals. Put people at ease, making them feel like they belong.
Just act natural
Is about being open, down to earth and relaxed. Being comfortable and confident enough to be yourself while having a bit of fun along the way.
Get stuck in and make it happen
Is about having a solutions focus when problems arise. A can-do, not a make-do attitude.
Proactively thinking about better or different ways of doing things. Actively helping customers, without needing to be asked.
Share Your New Zealand
Is about sharing the spirit of Air New Zealand, wherever we are in the world. Being part of a team that loves our place and our airline. Sharing our passions with our customers.
We are exceptionally proud of our cultural diversity, something we look to reflect in all the people working within our business. We recognise that a diverse workforce will deliver diversity of thought, innovation and customer insight that will better service our customers.
We embrace our diversity and look to each other to share solutions and viewpoints. Our culture is about our identity; we are always looking at ways to celebrate this. Our people all over the world create and define our unique culture. It's not just colleagues and friends that make Air New Zealand a great place; it is our uniqueness and our joy in learning about others. When you work in a global business that is passionate about travel, it is only natural that you love people and rejoice in all their differences. Air New Zealand is home to a global bunch of very talented people who work hard, get on well and take a lot of pride in wearing the Koru. The fact that things are always changing, adds to our strengths and capabilities.
Our people make us who we are. They are the face of Air New Zealand. We welcome the things that make individuals different, as we celebrate the one thing that we all share - our Air New Zealand.
We have a sense of community and a share in the success of Air New Zealand and its place on the world stage.
It is about who you are, that counts.
I have been working at Air New Zealand full-time (More than a year)
The Kiwi culture is great, very inviting to foreigners working for ANZ's offshore offices. Great benefits and friendly work environment. The ANZ brand is top notch in the industry.
Probably need to be willing to relocate to Auckland, NZ to further career in top management positions
Advice to Management
keep up the good work!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Air New Zealand.
Phone interview with the head office, then a formal interview with the hiring department and an HR rep. After the formal interview there was an informal meeting with the department to discuss experience and fit.
