Kia ora,

Are you an experienced External Auditor looking for your next career move? We have an exciting opportunity to be a part of our Financial Assurance team in Wellington or Christchurch. A career with us puts you in a supportive community of professionals and in cities unlike any other.

With professional opportunities and the chance for a fine work/life balance, there are countless reasons to consider a career in PwC's Wellington or Christchurch office. Our clients are doing incredible things, and your PwC career will equip you with the means to cultivate their growth. 

In this role you will:

You will be encouraged to really get to know the people you are working with, building meaningful, and valued relationships. We’ll help you develop and broaden your skills, with the opportunity to take on more responsibility and advance your career.

In your downtime, you won’t be short of things to do in Wellington either. Our capital encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. From Lambton Quay, the iconic red Wellington Cable Car heads to the Wellington Botanic Gardens.

Down in Canterbury, our ski resorts are some of the best in the world, while mountain biking, rafting, windsurfing, and bungee jumping are in no short supply. When it comes to relaxing, why not try whale watching or taking a round on one of our superbly scenic golf courses?
